11 iPhone Camera Gadgets That Will Make Your Photos MUCH Better

Lisa Eadicicco

Today, we use our smartphones more than ever to capture photos. As smartphone cameras continue to evolve, the need to carry around a separate camera with you becomes even slimmer.

The iPhone in particular has been praised for the quality of its camera. The iPhone 5s, for example, is capable of capturing larger microns in its lens than some other smartphones.

Basically, this means its camera sensor is capable of taking in more light, which results in more detailed and clear photos.

But there's always room for improvements. iPhone accessory makers and photography companies have released a ton of gadgets that are meant to enhance your iPhone's camera capabilities.

We've combed through a bunch of expert reviews and photography blogs to find some of the best camera accessories for your iPhone.

Lensbaby Sweet Spot Lens ($70, coming soon)

In May, Lensbaby raised more than $40,000 on Kickstarter to create an attachable lens for smartphones that lets you choose the area of focus. With the Sweet Spot, you can focus on one point in your image while the outer edges gradually get blurry. Lensbaby, which makes an array of lenses, says this is its most popular effect to date. It'll cost $70 when it comes to market, but Kickstarter backers get it for $50.
