10 of the best iPhone camera accessories and lenses to help you take pro quality photos
Smartphone cameras have come a very long way in just a few short years, and our lab tests consistently bear out that these are truly capable of professional-quality photos. Of course, there’s more to getting high-quality photos than just the camera—especially for a smartphone which is naturally limited by a phone’s size, shape, and fixed lens. Luckily, there are a slew of accessories—from lenses, to tripods, to gimbals—that can help take your iPhone photos to the next level. These are some of the best accessories we’ve seen for the iPhone, and a perfect addition to any budding smartphone photographer’s arsenal. There are lots of lenses you can attach to various iPhones, but the New Telephoto lens from Moment are my favorite.The default iPhone lens provides a nice wide-angle field of view, so having the option to add a telephoto look to your photos should be your first priority, no matter what kind of photos you plan to take. Just a heads up, you’ll need a case that supports the Moment mount to use this with your phone.This case works with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, this case works with the iPhone 7 and 8 Plus, and this case works with the iPhone X.

That’s true, but you can make sub-par gear work through creativity, as long as it gives you options.If you like the idea of add-on lenses but are on a very tight budget, this kit from Aukey has you covered. None of the lenses are very sharp, but it includes wide-angle options, macro options for close-up photos, and the clip to attach everything to your iPhone. You’ll need to be creative to get top-notch results, but it’s a fun addition if you want to just mess around.Get the Aukey iPhone lens kit from Amazon for . 99 The new DJI Osmo phone stabilizer was hands-down my favorite gadget at CES 2018, taking home one of our coveted Editors’ Choice awards. For just 9.99 it offers incredible stabilization for hand-held shots, a simple joystick for buttery smooth tilts and pans, and controls for zoom and capturing photos. With long battery life and a substantially reduced price over the original DJI Osmo, it might just be my favorite smartphone camera accessory of 2018. Pre-order the DJI Osmo+ gimbal at B&H for 9.99 Joby’s Gorillapod series has been around for a long time, and it’s still one of the best ways to attach your phone to your environment for creative, rock-solid shots. Smartphones are significantly more prone to shake, even on bright days, than full-size cameras.This can make it difficult to get steady shots, meaning your shots will lack the sharpness they should have. This Gorillapod is easy to use and works with a wide range of smartphones thanks to its sliding head, which grips your phone tightly while you’re setting up your shot.
