selfie lamp reviews

The selfie lamp has always seemed to us a superfluous gadget, but it turned out to be great on increasingly shorter days, when taking photos on a blog and social media is a challenge. If you also suffer from a lack of light - this is a gadget for you!

We don't have a good camera, so we take all our photos - whether on the blog or social media - with our phones (Sony Xperia Z1 compact or Sony Xperia Z3 compact). Our models do not have great cameras, but if we exercise a little naked, we will take good photos. The biggest problem in autumn and winter are getting shorter days. Those who work full-time and blogging in addition know what they are talking about. Are you coming home and you have no chance to take good photos? You only see the light on weekends, when you slam a million photos for the whole week? You don't have to do this anymore. This lamp is really a useful gadget for taking photos with a smartphone.

Taking good photos with your phone is a real challenge. We often combine with different backgrounds, and we also process pics in various applications. In our current apartment there is the problem that it is west, which is why very often there are shadows in our photos that are difficult to get rid of. A good graphic designer would do it in a few minutes, but I don't touch the graphics at all, and Piotr is self-taught.
The photo lamp came with help, which we use with almost every photo taken. Thanks to it photos are better lit and thanks to different light modes. The lamp has 9 modes each of which is a little different. Some of them have a warm color, some cold and each has a different light intensity.
  1. mode is very bright, warm-winters (lamps that light warm and cold light up)
  2. mode is same as first, but it is darker
  3. mode is similar to the first two, but the light intensity is much lower
  4. mode bright, cool
  5. mode medium intensity, cool
  6. mode least light, cool
  7. mode high intensity, warm
  8. mode medium intensity, warm
  9. mode lowest brightness level, warm

Flash Remax is available in several colors - gold, pink and black. We decided on the golden version, because we liked the color version the most. This The gadget fits every smartphone model, its installation is very simple, because the lamp attaches to the clip. In addition, we will find a small bag in the box, which is useful when you want to always have the lamp with you. Thanks to it, it won't scratch or damage. The gadget is very small and light, which fits even in the smallest purse.

Let's get to what is most interesting, i.e. the effects of taking pictures. On the left side you can see photo that was taken without a lamp, after right for it photo with lamp set to 5 mode.

With the naked eye you can see that the photo on the right is more lit and therefore also clearer. Definitely on the right it is more suitable for showing the world.

Battery in the lamp we charge using a USB cable connected to the computer. The only downside is that the lamp is charging a little on 'watch', because no LED is on, which informs us whether it has been charged. Because of this we can be surprised that when taking pictures, it suddenly discharges.
In our opinion, this is a great gadget that will be useful to every blogger, but not only, but also to people who like taking pictures with their smartphone.

    Crap, but a nice gadget. For now, I can do the work myself, but I may be tempted. 😀

      I've stopped since I got this gadget. How much time saved 😀 We now live in an apartment west and here it is very difficult for good light, so we save ourselves with a selfie lamp.

    I think many people will be tempted by such an invention. Anyway, the photos you included in the post show that it's worth it.

      definitely worth it! The difference is huge 🙂 I am very happy, this is one of the gadgets that a blogger should have.

    It will always be useful! Taking good photos with your phone is a real challenge 🙂

      You also need to have a good phone. Ours take medium-quality photos, but the iPhone takes really good photos. That is why we are thinking about exchanging phones, but certainly not yet.

    You literally fell from heaven! I immediately sent my cousin that this is what I want for Christmas! 🙂 The difference in the picture is huge!

    I bought a camera, but I still don't feel confident in using all the options, so this little gadget will definitely be useful.

      I am very happy! This gadget will definitely be in my non-cosmetic favorites. Such a small thing, and it changed my life 🙂 I wonder how it will work for you. Be sure to let me know.

    Nice gadget, although like a blog I take photos with a regular camera;).

    • Avatar [Email protected] 3 December 2016 / 10: 47

      Unfortunately, we don't have a good camera, so we save ourselves with our smartphones and the lamp.

    These gadgets are great 🙂 except that I, as a photographer, think the phone is ringing 😉 but it's my professional perversion 😀

    • Avatar [Email protected] 3 December 2016 / 10: 46

      Haha I'm not surprised 😉 We have to deal with the phone for now, but the camera has been in the works for a long time.

  8. Avatar Home Syndrome 2 December 2016 / 12: 27

    Well, what people will not invent 🙂 I take pictures only with the camera and I usually have it with me everywhere so the smartphone lamp seems redundant to me but I think that for instagram users it is a bull's-eye 😉

    • Avatar [Email protected] 3 December 2016 / 10: 48

      We just want to hit Instagram hard, but you need a good camera or smartphone.

    I didn't know such a miracle. Very nice gadget and great design. 🙂

    In fact, such a gadget can turn out to be very useful, I have not heard of this lamp so far, I will gladly find out more about it. 🙂

    I saw it once at NikkieTutorials. Great thing, I will probably buy, I like such fancy useful gadgets 😉

      This gadget saves our ass when it gets darker outside the window.

    I don't get the selfie phenomenon at all, but it's difficult. 😉 Phone lamp? However, I think I prefer to invest in a camera. But what does someone like, maybe it really is useful to someone ...? Greetings!

    • Avatar [Email protected] 3 December 2016 / 10: 49

      The lamp is not expensive, so it is a great help if you can't afford a good camera. Besides, now some smartphones have such cameras ... sometimes even better than digital ones.

  13. Avatar Milena M. 29 November 2016 / 21: 11

    I have a weak camera phone to take pictures with, so it makes no sense to buy a lamp from me.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 30 November 2016 / 08: 03

      In this case, a regular camera will be much better for you 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 30 November 2016 / 08: 03

      Great thing! Especially now, when the days are short, and in the evenings you also need to take pictures.

  14. Avatar Beauty B. 29 November 2016 / 20: 10

    Indeed, the difference in the picture is huge.
