If you're into macro photography, Adaptalux could be your new best friend. The new Kickstarter project is aimed to solve a lot of the lighting issues macro photographers face and offer new ways to light objects in creative ways. The Adaptalux is a small device with five ports and five adjustable LED lighting arms with different color outputs. The device can be mounted on the camera itself for on-the-go outdoors shooting, or can be placed off-camera in more controlled environments.
The makers of the Adaptalux offer additional add-on accessories such as diffusers, light backdrops, a light stage, and color filters to make it easier to create unique macro images.
Starting price for the product is about $150 which includes one control pod and two lighting arms. In order to get more arms and the additional accessories you will have to pay as much as $450. Check out the videos below to learn more about the device and the accessories.
