LED Camera Technology

Camera flash tech is nearly as historic as the camera itself. The flash bulb launched a mini industrial revolution, continued on by the cube and the battery-operated units. Now the LED flash promises to create another powerful shift in the way photographers utilize light.

LED stands for light-emitting diode. First unveiled in 1962, the diodes projected a dim reddish aura. They’re now available across the color spectrum, plus the infrared and ultraviolet. LEDs, once dark and reddish, are now brilliantly, to be frank, brilliant, making them ideal for taking photos.

Most flash units today incorporate Xenon.
