The Flash Helmet

One of the many reasons I love the Japanese is for their sometimes incomparable sense of invention. The Flash Helmet is a fine example of this creative spirit. Too bad it’s so ridiculous.

This portable lighting system is designed to produce a soft light as it’s bounced from an umbrella. A head-mounted umbrella. Yes, a flash unit and umbrella are mounted to a helmet, synced to the camera and used to produce a rather nice light. But unless you’re used to taking pictures while wearing a clown suit, the absurd appearance of this device might not be for you.
