Best iPhone travel gadgets
Your iPhone or smartphone can be upgraded to your travel camera if you enhance it with these handy accessories.
Joby GripTight ONE GP Magnetic Impulse
This portable tripod can be attached to trees or posts with its flexible wrap around legs. It’s a great way to help eliminate shaky images and the variety of angles it offers can really improve your pictures. A Bluetooth remote is included so you can take photos from up to 30 metres away.
Moment iPhone Lenses
These lenses attach to your iPhone via the integral Moment case which ensures a tight seal and sharp images without the light leaks that trouble some other add-on lenses. The newly launched Tele lens (58mm) allows you to zoom without losing image quality or focus. Other lenses available are Wide, Macro and Superfish. Each lens comes with a microfibre bag and lens cap, and is small enough to keep in your pocket.
Olloclip for iPhone
A little lower down the price scale than Moment, these are a pretty good option too. There’s a decent variety to choose from, each lens delivering quality photos with a minimum of fuss.
Lume Cube Lighting Kit for Smartphone
This portable flash attaches to your phone via Bluetooth and allows adjustable light levels, overriding the rather harsh inbuilt phone flash. It’s waterproof to 30 metres so you can capture underwater action on your next snorkelling trip – just make sure your phone is waterproof too.
Waterproof to three metres, these sleek, lightweight cases will protect your phone from accidents so you won’t ever have to worry about screen cracks again. They are great for everyday use and will help capture underwater shots with ease.
Anker PowerCore Portable Charger
If you are planning a day-long wildlife drive then this portable charger is a handy gadget to pop in your day bag. With enough power to change eight iPhones or five Samsung Galaxys it has two slots so two phones can be charged at the same time.
Canon IVY Mini Photo Printer
This dinky printer is small enough to take with you on your travels and prints two-by-three inch, smudge proof photos in under a minute. You can add text, filters and Polaroid borders for a vintage feel. Just connect it to your smartphone via Bluetooth.
