Let me let you in on a little secret: Photographers are big nerds. And like all big nerds, many of us are obsessed with Star Wars, which is why photographer Jerry Ghionis’s ICE Light is such a brilliant idea.

Yes, the ICE Light is a cleverly designed LED light (manufactured and distributed by Westcott) with a built-in handgrip on one end so you or an assistant can comfortably hold it over your subject to provide soft, flattering light for photos or video. But it also looks like a light saber. A frickin’ light saber!

The 20-inch ICE Light comes with a power cord and a charger, gel clips, and a case with an adjustable strap and a belt loop. So in other words, you can wear the ICE Light on your belt just like Obi-Wan Kenobi. May the force be with you.

Price: $499.90
