Features Smartphone pro-photo gear
TURN YOUR HANDSET INTO A BONE-FIDE DLSR-COMPETITOR OR A ROBUST ACTION CAM WITH THESE PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY ACCESSORIES.
THE SAYING GOES that the best camera is the one that you have on you, and nowadays, most of us do have a camera with us at all times — the one in our phone.
When it comes to the quality of photos and videos, smartphone cameras have come a long way in the last few years. Modern flagships have the capability to take excellent photos and video and can even compete against some dedicated point-and-shoot cameras out in the market.
But while the smartphone has undeniably come leaps and bounds in terms of tech specs and software smarts, there is still a notable gap between what can be achieved on a DSLR or specialised video cam.
It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that a wide variety of photography accessories and devices have sprung up to address that gap. Some of these enhancements include stabilisation, stereo audio recording, off camera (phone) lighting and lens changes. Photography and videography have always been about storytelling and these add-ons aim to help you broaden your abilities — but still take advantage of the convenience of your smartphone.
