Light painting is a technique, where exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph. You may have seen people attempting that with a flashlight or a sparkler. To achieve a truly magical piece, however, you need a lot of patience and accessories. The team at Fotorgear have created what is essentially a wand that lets you do light magic in real life. Introducing Magilight, the easiest and most professional tool that lets you color the air.
Effortlessly Intricate Light Painting Perfection
Gone are the days when light painting involves only simple words and sloppy shapes drawn by flashlights. With 144 High-resolution RGB LEDs, Magilight lets you create the most detailed, most stunning art pieces. You can pre-programme it to help you paint the images you want. Find and edit the images you want to a maximum height of 144 pixels in 24-bits bmp. Then, store that image onto the TF card and insert it into the wand. After that just set your camera to long exposure mode, select the image on the wand, press the shutter, and wave the light stick. The stick will take care of the rest.
Create Real Light Magic with Magilight
If you’ve read Harry Potter, you know that real, magical photos shouldn’t stand still. Magilight helps you create light painting animation, and comes equipped with Blink Mode as well. All you need to do is put the animation into a folder. Turn this mode on, and after finishing one shot, just press ‘OK’. The wand will start displaying the following images, crafting an animated piece. With Blink Mode, you can create a special, trippy, flashing light effect for your photos. The light stick can be mounted on tripods, drones, and other accessories. In other words, the possibilities are endless.
Magilight is now live on Indiegogo, with a month to go for you to back the project. For USD199, you get a Magilight wand, a travel case, TF card, and batteries and charger. The gadget should ship in April this year.
