There is an Incorrect Aspect Ratio Issue in iOS 13. Please check the following “Limitations” before ordering.
Taking photos under low lights on your iPhone is a challenge. Without a way to properly light your scene, photos turn out looking too dark or unevenly lit. There have been a few devices that have tried to make lighting better on your phone, but none of them compare to professional Xenon flashes or strobes.
Introducing Tric: the world’s first wireless flash trigger for smartphones
We developed a patent-pending technology to synchronize the iPhone camera and external Xenon flash units. Now photographers can use speedlights or studio strobes with their iPhones. Tric is incredibly easy to use: just attach a flash unit to Tric, turn it on, launch the app and start shooting.
