10 smartphone camera gadgets that can take your messages on social media to the level of the influencer «Android :: Gadgethacks



Whether you are trying to become a influencer or just want to share better photos & videos, the best camera to share with start is your smartphone. It is probably the only camera that you will always have with you and it is likely to be able to take excellent photos and video recordings. But with a little help it could certainly be better.

Due to the form factor of smartphones, the camera quality is inherently limited. To keep the phone at a reasonable thickness, camera modules must use small lenses and flashes that impede performance. But with the help of some third-party accessories you can bridge the gap between your phone and a high-quality DSLR.

1
. Attachable lens

You can never have enough lenses. Different lenses have different strengths, so having the right ones is always important. But until changeable lenses become a reality for smartphones, the only option is mountable lenses from third parties.

With a attachable lens you can already change the lens on your smartphone by placing a new lens on it. This can change the focal length and field of view, making your camera more versatile.

Olloclip and Hitcase uses clips attached to the phone to hold the lens over the rear camera, making them compatible with most smartphones. However, a better option is Moment lenses, which use a phone case to hold the lens in place.

2. Camera Rig

With a camera rig you can attach extra accessories to your camera without the need for extra hands. Some rigs come with multiple holders, so you can add a combination of devices such as microphones and lights.

Beastgrip ( $ 139.99 on Amazon) makes a rig with one cold shoe holder and the ability to add more ($ 11.99 on Amazon). But I don't think you even have to spend that much. Options from Zeadio and Ulazi come with three shoe brackets and cost around a tenth of the price.

You take the most pictures with your phone in your hands, but in some situations a tripod or a selfie stick is needed. Why not both? Fugetek FT-569 ( $ 23.99 on Amazon) is a perfect combo tool that extends to 51 inches and has an external shutter release. But my choice for the best deal in this category is the Mpow Selfie Stick and Tripod ($ 14.99 on Amazon). Although it only extends to 29.5 inches, it is easier to store, it comes with an external Bluetooth shutter button and it includes an LED light that can act as a flash.

If you want to take your video game to the next level, a big investment is a slider. Nothing says amateur more than sloppy handheld recordings, and a slider puts an end to this when you need panning shots.

The Neewer Carbon Fiber Dolly Rail ( $ 49.50 on Amazon) gives you 16 inch of movement. It comes with a telephone holder, but you can also use it with a camera rig.

5. Gimbal

A tripod is great for stationary actions, but if you record any kind of movement, you want a gimbal. Gimbals stabilize your phone while you move, making your smooth video recordings much better than any built-in stabilization mechanism.

One of the best gimbals on the market is the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 ( $ 119 on Amazon). It is designed for smartphones with a lightweight design and including telephone holder. It supports gesture control so that you can have a photo taken or start recording even when you are alone. And it has Active Track 3.0, which uses machine learning to improve tracking while keeping the action smooth.

6. External microphone

If video is more your style, it is not enough to rely on the supplied microphones of your smartphone to record audio. As with lenses the quality of the microphones is limited by the compact design.

You have a few options for iPhones. Although many external microphones use the headphone jack to connect to your phone, more and more microphones have recently made a Lightning connector. Options such as Zoom iQ6 Professional Microphone ($ 99.99 on Amazon) and Shure MV88 ($ 149 on Amazon) are huge upgrades, so the sound quality matches the video quality of the camera & # 39; s of your iPhones.

If you use Android, you want to be there one with a USB Type-C connector. Comica CVM-VS09 ($ 58.69 on Amazon) is a directional shotgun microphone that is ideal for most movie needs. Another option is the Movo TPM100 microphone ($ 49.95 on Amazon), a cardioid microphone with windscreens to shield the impact of wind during outdoor sessions.

7. External lights

Whether you want to take photos or movies, few aspects are more important to the end result than lighting. Lights for smartphones come in different options. For those who want to move around, the VILTROX VL-162T CRI95 + ( $ 36.59 on Amazon) is your best option. For stationary recordings, the Neewer Ring Light Kit ($ 99.99 on Amazon) is a better option. It accommodates your smartphone with a 55W 5500K dimmable ring light and illuminates your subject.

8. External camera

When Google & # 39; s project Ara was canceled in 2016, the promises of a modular future in which all parts (including the camera modules) could be replaced, died with it. However, the ability to upgrade our camera was not lost.

DxO (yes, the same DxO behind DxOMark) created a module for both iPhone and Android, known as the DxO One. The Android version (starting at $ 184.99 on Amazon) and iPhone version ($ 199.95 on Amazon) use the native data port to provide a 20.2 MP CMOS-BSI sensor (the same in the Sony RX100). series) for both photos & video.

Another option is the Sony QX10 ($ 329.95 on Amazon). With the help of the supplied attachment you can mount it on the back of your phone and operate it via an app. Images are stored on a microSD card or can be transferred wirelessly via NFC and Wi-Fi directly. The QX10 has a 10x optical zoom and it works on both iPhones and Android devices.
