Your smartphone can take pretty good photos, but they can look much better with a few smart accessories.
These are the most useful and practical accessories that will have you step up your smartphone photography game:
The Olloclip 4-in-1
You’ve probably seen these lenses that you can clamp over the top of your iPhone or Android camera lens to help capture more around you. The Olloclip 4-in-1 includes fisheye lens, wide-angle lens, 10x macro lens for extreme close-up shots, and 15x macro lens, too. You can switch between these glass lenses in seconds and they work with all of your favorite photo and video apps. Make sure you buy the one that fits your specific phone model.
The FLIR ONE
The FLIR ONE is a clever thermal imaging camera accessory that snaps underneath your iPhone or Android. It then lets you see the heat emanating out of a person, pet, or inanimate object. For example, you can spot someone in an underground garage because of their heat signature or see where energy is escaping in your household. It can also tell you the temperature of what you are pointing it at.
The GorillaPod from JOBY
Because of its bendable legs and many rotatable joints, this cool gadget allows you to secure your smartphone to virtually any object, be it a tree, rock, fence, door knob or lamp post. JOBY has actually more than 10 styles to choose from, and all of them are built with sturdy injection molded plastic for secure joints, while the rubberized ring and foot grips provide an extra hold to study your shoot.
The Lumee iPhone case
You probably know that when taking selfies the lighting isn’t the best since the flash is in the back of the phone and the photos turn out to be not that flattering. But the Lumee smartphone case from Logixx changes all of that because it lights up your face for selfies. This unique smartphone case has front-facing lighting that you can use for taking pictures. It has bright adjustable LED lights powered by a rechargeable battery built into the case. Simply press the small button on the back to illuminate your face and you are good to go. There are also few different models to choose from.
The SunDisk Connect wireless stick
Slightly larger than a regular USB thumb stick, this 32-gigabyte flash drive emits a Wi-Fi direct signal, allowing you to wirelessly access content such as movies, TV shows, photos, documents and much more. You can also wirelessly back up your photos and videos that you shot on your smartphone to the wireless drive and then delete them off the phone to make some room.
The Lightwish LED smartphone light
This is an external light for all the photos and videos you shoot on your smartphone. There are 12 bright LED lights built into the hand grip which holds your phone in place until it sits just above the lights. The built-in batteries supply a powerful light for various situations like dark environments outside or inside of a nightclub. Plus there are 4 power modes to adjust the brightness to your liking. This gadget is small enough to bring with you everywhere.
