I wonder if there is any external, more powerful, flash that support Windows Phone?

  • Do you mean an external flash drive, or a camera flash? You've tagged your question with unrelated tags that make it difficult to determine what problem you're trying to solve

  • Flash seems to be a synonym of Flash Player. Didn't know that but the tag is removed now. Jun 2 '14 at 11:13
  • So do you mean flash memory (like for reading SD cards), or camera flash?

  • A camera flash. Jun 2 '14 at 11:16

At time of writing, there are no phones that have exposed contacts for directly connecting an external flashgun, but this doesn't mean that it's not possible to control the flash wirelessly:

There are ways to get flashes to fire, without direct communication from a camera, using an optical slave (which really does just see flash, and fire themselves).

In theory, it should also be possible for someone to make something that controls a flash via Bluetooth (Satechi already make a device that can control a camera via Bluetooth)
