Polaroid announced the Flexible LED Lighting Panel Tuesday. Aimed at photographers, this panel is 16mm thick and 12-inches square. It comes with a frame, but is designed to be molded into whatever shape needed. It also comes with a diffusion filter, and it’s remote control for four different channels for precise control over the light. It uses 256 LEDs to produce 4,500 lumens. Polaroid is selling it through Amazon at $124.99.
Portrait Mode wasn’t included with iOS 10 at launch. It was released with the iOS 10.1 update. So Portrait Lighting will probably come with iOS 11.1.
All of the new models have better cameras with more functionality, a new image sensor processor, and studio lighting.

Now I need to go back and add #ShotoniPhone to some of my pics.
