A1 is equipped with 1W LED lamp and can be used as a small and portable light source for your smartphone, however this is not the most important feature of this unique device. First of all, A1 is a standalone 8Ws flash unit, that can be wireless synchronized with smartphone camera and this is a huge step-up. More controllable light source you can use equals more creativity and uniqueness. Moreover A1 stands out for its full integration with advanced and complex Quadralite and Godox wireless flash system. There is only one condition: you have to install Quadralite Photo App on your smartphone. This tandem will ultimately transform your phone into a professional studio camera. Finally you will be able to use additional lights with ease in studio, on location or anywhere you want.

Quadralite A1 European premiere, first tests and reviews

First European premiere of a lamp designed especially for smartphones - Quadralite A1, was held last week. We invited media representatives, bloggers, photographers and our most key partners. All of our guests had a unique opportunity to not only familiarize themselves with A1, but also with other products offered by Quadralite brand. The main focus point of the meeting was on the A1 and its unique features and the resulting capabilities which it offers to the users. Participants were able to check themselves and test in practice, how much this wireless flash could bring to the photography.

We have had three fully equipped studio stands, ready at guests disposal. They could also check the A1 as a wireless flashlight for smartphones as well as the handy light management controller used in the professional photo studio. The tests were combined with workshops conducted by Jakub Kaźmierczyk, who showed how to subdue A1 and effectively use it to illuminate the photographed scene in simple and affordable way. Check how our premiere was captured:

During the launch of the Quadralite A1, we have received many positive comments from our guests. They mentioned that from the beggining they were cautiously approaching the idea of the flash for smartphones, but their attitudes changed radically after the presentation and the first tests. In the words of our guests, they emphasized the tremendous potential of Quadralite A1, ease of use and compact size. There is nothing left to say, let the guests talk themselves:

„In one sentense, more light is better picture quality and clearer pictures. With the A1 model, we have extra lighting that is just waiting to be used.”

Michał Chrzanowski, fotopolis.pl

„As an extra flash for smartphones, it's an interesting fact that you can take it wherever you want, it fits your pocket or could make your smartphone's picture much better, especially of poor lighting conditions.”

Michelle Peeters, photofacts.nl

„The Quadralite A1 is a simple flash designed to improve the quality of your smartphone photos in low light conditions. This device hides much more important functions.”

Maciej Smyl, optyczne.pl
