Gadgets for Mobile Phone Photography

Photography is a beautiful activity. Beautiful moments are captured forever. Photography has moved from being an activity for professionals only to something that everyone else can do. Smartphones have the latest technology when it comes to taking photos.

Photography is no longer restricted to members of the trade or professionals that make a living capturing the beautiful memories of others. Taking selfies and photos to share on social media is pretty much part of life now. This created a market for selfie tools, photography gadgets and smartphone accessories that are innovated for use with your mobile devices



Bevel is a simple attachment to take 3D pictures with your smartphone or tablet. Just plug this device into the headphone jack of your mobile device, and pan the surroundings for a 3D photo. The images captured can also be used to print 3D objects with a 3D printer. ($79.99 on pre-order)

You do not have to own a DSLR camera in order to get good lighting while taking photos. If you decide to carry one around then you should know that there is  a better way to trigger it.

Pocket Spotlight

If you think that the pop-up flash on a DSLR is the most unflattering light source known to man, you’re close, but the flash on your smartphone is even worse. The Pocket Spotlight is designed to fix that, providing continuous lighting that you can either hand-hold or plug into your phone’s headphone jack. A full charge via USB will last about an hour. The light works well for both stills and video.


You use your phone for everything else these days, so why not use it to trigger your DSLR? One end of the cord plugs into your camera, and the other plugs into your phone. Download the free app and you’re good to go. Modes include: standard trigger, motion trigger, sound trigger, time-lapse, distance-lapse, face-detection trigger, customizable HDR, star trails, and more. Features vary somewhat between Android and iOS versions, so make sure to double-check if you’re looking for something specific. Individual components are available on Amazon, but check the website to make sure you get what’s right for your camera.
