The kit offers multiple assembly modes. To make the device more flexible, you may assemble reusable elements according to your recording needs, namely small video microphones and LED video lights. Besides, Viewflex provides a removable handle grip, it is easy to carry and install.


2. Bostionye Cell Phone Lens Kit

Best lens kit for iPhone

Number of lenses: 8 | Weight: 11.2 ounces  |  Dimensions: 5.9 x 4.4 x 1.9 inches

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ Remote shutter
⊕ User-friendly
⊕ Small size
⊖ The phone cover should be removed to use the lens

This lens iPhone photography kit enables you to reach completely new levels in mobile photography. With telephoto or close-up macro lenses to choose from, you can take truly professional-looking shots, no worse than with a digital camera.

The lenses are compatible with Android smartphones as well.

20 times telephoto lens boasts a regulated focal length and an ability to shoot from a long distance (regular iPhone camera provides short distance only). In addition, the kit consists of 198° Fisheye lens, 15X Macro lens, Wide-Angle lens, 2X Telephoto lens, Kaleidoscopes, CPL filter and 4-Line Star filter.

Bluetooth remote shutter for simplified photographing is included in the kit.

This Cell Phone Lens Kit features high-end optic lenses made of industrial-grade aluminum. This material ensures durability over a long period of use. Besides, you will find a protective case in the kit for the secure storing of lenses.


3. GOBY GripTight GorillaPod Stand PRO

Best tripod

goby griptight gorillapod stand pro iphone photo accessories

Material: ABS plastic, TPE, and stainless steel | Dimensions: 3 x 12 x 2 in | Weight: 0.53 lbs | Attachment Type: 1/4"-20 standard tripod mount

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ Compatible with a number of smartphones
⊕ Flexible and durable construction
⊕ A tilt angle may be adjusted
⊖ A tripod head is difficult to rotate

A tripod is one of the most important Apple iPhone camera accessories. However, a standard tripod is quite large and won’t suit shooting with a phone since it adds unnecessary weight. In this case, you can use a mini tripod, like Joby GorillaPod.

Unlike standard tripods with legs, it features joints. These can be adjusted and moved in any way you wish. It means that you may attach the tripod to all kinds of uneven surfaces.

Wrapping GorillaPod around a tree or a pole makes it possible to photograph from unusual angles. Moreover, it will securely hold your phone during shooting.

For selfie fans, GorillaPod can be turned into a selfie stick. I like that it is fitting for any phone from 2,2-3,9 inches, for instance, iPhone 8 and 8+, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S8 and other models.


4. Lume Cube Lighting Kit

Best lighting kit

Lumens: 1500 | Dimensions: 3 x 12 x 2 in  | Color Temperature: 6000K | Attachment Type: 1/4"-20 standard tripod mount  | CRI: 85

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ May be controlled wirelessly
⊕ Robust and water-resistant
⊕ Rechargeable
⊕ Regulated brightness
⊖ Long charging process

Flashes on the cameras for iPhone aren’t powerful enough for some photographers. That’s when a Lume Cube lighting kit will come in handy.

The kit isn’t so big but it generates bright light and helps a lot when shooting with an iPhone in low light conditions. The kit consists of the cube and a smartphone mount. Off-camera placement is possible so you can illuminate objects from different angles.

The body is quite robust, made of aluminum and is hard to damage. It will withstand any conditions.

You can control this lighting kit using the Bluetooth App. For manual brightness control, press 2 buttons on top of the Lume Cube with your fingertips.

The kit is water-resistant to 100ft without housing.

Lume Cube can be recharged on the move with the help of the built-in Micro USB port on the rear side of the device. Unfortunately, the charging process takes a lot of time.


5. Canon IVY Mobile Mini Photo Printer

Best portable printer

Print resolution: 314 x 400 dots per inch | Dimensions: 4.7 x 3.2 x 0.7 in | Weight: 5.6 ounces |  Media Size Maximum: 3 x 5 inch

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ You can apply filters before printing a photo
⊕ Collage printing options
⊕ Can make tile prints
⊕ Prints from social networks and Bluetooth
⊖ Battery life is insufficient

The photo printing trend is making a comeback. It isn’t surprising since looking at a physical copy of the shot is always a pleasure.

Now you can easily print your mobile pictures using one of the best iPhone photography accessories – a mini printer.

This Canon Ivy printer is compact and can be carried around even in your pocket. To print a shot, firstly, connect the phone to the printer using Bluetooth. Then pick the desired shot from the gallery or social networks and print it with a peel & stick back.

Before you start printing, you may tweak the pictures by applying filters, adding text, stickers, frames, Collage Print, tile print, etc.


6. CamKix Camera Shutter Remote Control

Best remote control

Dimensions: 4.7 x 3.2 x 0.7 in | Weight: 5.6 ounces

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ Lightweight
⊕ Can be conveniently carried around
⊕ Wrist strap is adjustable
⊖ While the connection is enabled, the keyboard disappears

There is a handy self-timer in every iPhone. However, it is pretty limited. For instance, once it is on, you have split seconds to get in front of the camera. That’s why I recommend using a remote control.

The device is connected to the phone via Bluetooth. It will continue working even while the phone is 30ft away. Put the remote control in the pocket on a keychain and conveniently carry it around.

When you don’t need to use the remote, an adjustable wrist strap, which is included in the kit, will hold the device in place.

In addition, Camkix is one of the best iPhone camera accessories for shooting long exposures. With such remote control, there is no need to touch the camera. It means that you can forget about undesired motion blur in the shots.


7. Insta360 Nano

Best for 360 iPhone photography

⊕ 360 Degree live streaming

360° photography isn’t a new thing in the industry. However, until recently, only those who owned high-end equipment could take such shots. Now, with the release of the Insta360 Nano camera, iPhone users have this opportunity as well.

The Nano camera’s two fisheye lenses are capable of capturing views in front and behind them simultaneously. Then, it combines two images into one without borders.

To use the Nano camera attached to iPhone, you need an application. With the help of this app, you may look at and share shots that you have taken. Feel free to display the shots on the phone screen or a virtual reality headset.

Thanks to the 360° video chat option, you can show your friends or relatives the way you see this or that particular scene right now in full glory.

⊕ Excellent display 15.6 LED Full HD
⊕ Three-level regulated brightness
⊕ Lightweight and small
⊕ Intuitive
⊖ Lacks temperature adjustments

If you are a selfie pro, you probably know that the quality of such shots greatly depends on the lighting. That’s why, to enhance the lighting in selfies, many photographers use clip-on ring lights.

This ring light is one of the best iPhone photography accessories for selfies. It features 36 LEDs to help selfies look better or improves pictures taken at night. Just attach the light to the top of your phone using a small clip and you are all set.

There are three regulated brightness options. The ring light produces a softer illumination than the built-in flash does and will not overexpose shots. The ring light is portable and may be carried around in your pocket or bag.

Moreover, this device is rechargeable. So after one charge, it will work for 7 hours of continuous use.

⊕ Easy to use
⊖ The phone case should be removed to use the grip

People, who shoot with their iPhones or any other smartphones are often irritated by the virtual shutter button. Actually, it isn’t so difficult to control, but there are still some restrictions. One of them is the complicated button activation when you are moving or having gloves on.

Pictar Grip is truly the best iPhone camera accessory as it provides a big shutter button and an ability to photograph with one hand – in horizontal or vertical positions. Also, its convenient grip prevents a smartphone from slipping out of the hand.

This device uses sound frequencies to enable the camera, thus saving battery power in comparison to regular Bluetooth connectivity.

On the bottom of Pictar Grip, there is a ¼” 20 standard connection for a tripod. On the top, you will see a “cold shoe” connection for external lighting.

iPhones are prone to all kinds of damage. In case you often take pictures outdoors, do travel photography or your phone tends to fall on the ground once in a while, a protective case is exactly what you need.

Such a case is also one of the handiest iPhone photography accessories for shooting underwater. With ProShotCase, you have an opportunity to capture marine life up to 50 feet underneath.

ProShotCases are suitable for all action camera mounts (Go Pro ones included). Ride a bicycle, kayak or ski and record videos hands-free at the same time, with the phone mounted to your chest.

It will be impossible to do underwater photography and videography with this protective case if you don’t install and run the “ProShotCase” camera application. The touchscreen doesn’t operate while being wet and the “ProShotCase” app turns the volume buttons on the phone into camera controls.
