It's a good release, the card doesn't leave my wallet since I bought it !

It plays really well! Especially good if you have another spectator take the photo so you can be in the shot with the person who owns the phone... make sure you get them to message you a copy as well sending it to Instagram.

MoM have it on the site here, shipping worldwide:

The new version comes with 2 different cards and a third one that’s blank. It also has a great online tutorial video

Hope this helps you

This looks very similar to Rainbow by Higar.

Yes and no, I think they both have their place Smile LightPaint is a semi transparent card and the selected card appears in a more unusual way than with Rainbow.

If the card has not left your wallet that would suggest to me that it’s a bad release.

Assuming this can only be performed in the dark.

Sorry to say but I did not get this to work as it should, either on my Smartphone or camera.

I am sure others will fare better with this than I did.

Jeez. What did you use as an out? How embarrassing.

Looks good, need more reviews first. Thanks Neil for sharing your experience... Hopefully your situation is not the norm.

I hope so too. Maybe I was unlucky but did try under various conditions and lights.

Try to talk a few step back in order to take the photo and lower the contrast

Stepping back is reasonable, lowering the contrast on a borrowed phone is not. It seems to be inferred that one should be able to borrow the average phone with default settings and snap a picture and have it work. Having to adjust the settings on a spec's phone would be a deal breaker (for me).

Neil, does stepping back resolve the issue?

It was because I was having limited success on my Smartphone that I tried my camera to see if I fared any better.

I did not. It was too hit and miss for me to actually use this in a performing situation.

I really am sorry I had to give up on this effect because I loved the demo and the idea behind it. Hopefully others will have more success.

Ouch. That's too bad, I was hoping this would be as good as it looked on the trailer, my "buy" finger was itching. There's one glimmer of hope though, would you please post what type of phone you were using? For example, if you're using an iPhone 6 maybe an iPhone 6 plus, 7 or 8 will work better (they all have upgraded cameras) or you could be using Android, it may help others to know the model.

True. If you’re using android then be prepared to fail.

I don't understand why you're here complaining about the product you don't own. I have it, I use it and I'm working with Android. You're bashing it with no reason, go get it, try it, and post your feedback here, rather than posting pointless messages.

I have a Samsung S6 and it works perfectly fine, it's not because one people doesn't get it to work means that the product doesn't work.

Here is a picture I took few minutes ago, full daylight, with my phone.

That is great news Alex and am glad you've got this effect working well.

Maybe I was just unlucky but it was not for the want of trying.
