Make Your Smartphone Camera More Powerful With THIS Accessory
Out of the box, your smartphone camera is incredible powerful, as we’ve described in the past few articles.
Did you know that you can get some accessories to make your smartphone camera even more powerful for real estate photography?
My biggest issue with the iPhone camera is that the lens isn’t as wide as I’d like, especially when you are shooting photos inside a house, so I purchased a Moment Wide Angle Lens and Case in order to take my mobile photography to the next level. If you’re a photography nerd, you can also get a zoom lens, macro lens, and fisheye lens for your iPhone or Android phone. This adds a level of professionalism and polish to your photos, but it also helps you get even more from your smartphone.
You can find smartphone lenses for pretty much every budget, and they can make a big difference.
Here’s a list of Smartphone lenses by price range:
On the pricier end, you have Moment Lenses, which starts at $119, and you also need the phone case in order to attach the lens to your phone. They make cases for pretty much every popular smartphone out there, so no matter if you have an Android or iPhone, you can rock these high quality lenses. Like I said, they are pricier, but the build quality and lens quality is excellent and worth the price.
Slightly cheaper, with no case required is the Olloclip at $99 which will clip to the camera of your smartphone (depending on the model you have). I used to use the older model of Olloclip for my iPhone 6S and it was fantastic as well.
At $39.99, you can get the Xenvo Pro Lens which will clip on to your smartphone. You won't get quite the optics as you would with a Moment Lens, but you really can't beat the price of this one.
Rovtop More Professional HD seems to be a cheaper version of the Moment Lens at $27.99. I have not personally used this one, but the sample images look pretty good. As a photographer, you usually get what you pay for, and sometimes you end up paying for going too cheap on equipment. That said, $27.99 is low enough to take the risk and try it out.
