It can be so frustrating trying to balance your phone or hold it still whilst videoing, it’s so hard to get it just right! Mini tripods will hold your phone still and can be manipulated into the perfect position to give you the best angle. An essential piece of kit for taking video on your phone.
Attachable ring lights
Wow! Photographer lighting on your phone! By attaching this ingenious light to the front or back of your phone, you can easily overcome disappointing light conditions to give you perfect lighting all of the time.
Mobile flash drives
Great for when you’re out and about and the dreaded storage warning appears on your phone. Rather than having to start deleting some of your treasured videos or music to make space, you can simply transfer some files onto your mobile flash drive.
Near-field communication (NFC) tags are small stickers that can be placed on objects that you’d like to communicate with your phone. For example, they can be used to control smart devices in your home, such as smart light bulbs, smart TVs, etc. But by far our favourite use is to place a tag on the back of a plate and program it to interact with one on the table, so it automatically texts the family for tea… brilliant!
Power banks have come a long way since they were first introduced. Today, for as little as $30, you can charge up three iPhone 14 batteries from one 10,000mAH bank. Perfect for festivals and camping holidays.
