ESSENTIAL PHONE PHOTOGRAPHY ACCESSORIES
KINGSTON BOLT DUO 64GB
The Bolt DUO is a smart device designed for iPhone that enables you to store your media directly to it rather than your phone’s internal memory. The accompanying app is simple enough to use and features a basic camera app. Alternatively, you can record using your chosen imaging app and transfer the footage.
SANDISK ULTRA 256GB
Not all microSD cards are the same, and although your card may have the storage it might not have the right speed. The Ultra is a mid-range card ideal for storing 4K footage in quantity. Not all phones can read cards this big, so you may need to go smaller. $199, sandisk.com
MANFROTTO LED LIGHT LUMIMUSE 8 LED
A constant light source is handy when taking shots and filming, and the Lumimuse is an ultra-powerful solution. The eight LEDs are daylight balanced and produce strong illumination. There’s an optional filter pack for giving your photos a different look, and there’s even an app-enabled Bluetooth version. $229, manfrotto.co.uk
MIGGO PICTAR ONE MKII
The fastest way to convert your phone into a fully featured camera. The Miggo Pictar One MKII slips over your mobile phone and adds five physical buttons and dials that give direct access to setting changes such as ISO and shutter speed, as long as you shoot using its companion app.
From $119, mymiggo.com
WD MY PASSPORT WIRELESS 2TB
Once you’ve taken all those amazing shots, it’s a good idea to back them up somewhere. The WD MY Passport Wireless range of portable hard drives are a neat and reliable solution. The companion mobile app enables you to back up your images and videos using the simple-to-follow interface. $299, wdc.com
BENRO TABLE TOP TRIPOD
This is one of the smallest tripods around, with a lightweight construction and compact design that make it an ideal mobile partner. You’ll need a tripod grip mount to hold your phone, which then bolts directly to the compact ball head for rock-steady shots. $34.95, benro.com
