The built-in camera on the iPhone 4 and 4S and the new iPad can take superb photos, but it doesn’t matter if you have one of these or an older device, loading your shooting arsenal up with some great accessories for taking your photos will mean that you will be able to take photos and make them look amazing.
Joby Gorilla Mobille
Joby’s Gorilla tripods allow you to fix cameras in all sorts of positions that would otherwise be impossible. This one is designed specifically for the iPhone 4 and 4S and allows you to stand the iPhone, sit it down, set it at an angle, or, best of all, wrap the legs around a tree branch or railing.
Glif For iPhone
The Glif for iPhone has two functions: to prop your iPhone up so you can put it on a desk, table, or wall to take pictures, and to attach it to a standard tripod. It’s made of rubberised plastic and is small enough to slip easily into a bag, or even your pocket.
Photojojo Telephoto Lens
Who cares if this telephoto lens makes your iPhone look like it’s sprouted a nose of Pinnochio proportions? It gives the iPhones camera an 8x optical zoom, and has a manual focus ring. The lens comes with an iPhone case to keep it fixed on, and there’s a table-top tripod and cleaning cloth included too.
Olloclip Lens System
Three lenses – a wide-angle, a fisheye, and a macro – in one tiny clip-on package. The Ollo Lens system for iPhone is a remarkable feat of engineering and looks cool too!
Holga iPhone Lens Filter Kit
Holga’s lens filter kits slips onto your iPhone like a case, but provides you with eight Holga filters. To change between them you just rotate the dial until the one you want is over the lens. The filters are all of the fun variety – two, three, and four images in one shot, a red filter with a heart cut-out, and a 60mm macro lens makes for some unusual shots.
Flipcage For iPhone
Flip-Cage for iPhone comes in two parts. There’s a clip on tripod mount adaptor which can be used to fix your iPhone to any standard tripod. And there’s the cage itself. The cage folds out to hold your iPhone in different positions in either landscape or portrait mode.
