In 2020, video has become an essential part of everyday life, from Zoom calls to vlogging to learning the latest TikTok dance. If you want your video to truly shine, you need some extra gear. These four great accessories will help you get more from your iPhone or Mac camera.
The iPhone is great at snapping photos and taking pictures. But troubles arise if you want to do anything other than point and shoot. For solid video at the proper angle, especially for selfies and vlogs, you want a tripod at least.
But you can do even better: This smart module includes a ton of automated features, so stable video is just the beginning.
For nearly a decade, photographer Dimpy Bhalotia has been using iPhones to document captivating street scenes in luscious black and white. She’s used almost every model Apple ever released — and this week, she took home top honors in the prestigious iPhone Photography Awards.
Bhalotia, a full-time fine art street photographer based out of London, told Cult of Mac she loves shooting with an iPhone so much that it’s become second nature.
“It’s a lightweight butter slice always in my hand, which has the entire world in it,” she said. “It feels like I’m shooting with my palm.”
We’re all spending plenty of time in front of our cameras these days, either slogging through video meetings or creating content. So whether you’re working on the latest TikTok dance, trying to give a convincing presentation, or just want to give your travel videos a studio-quality look, this automatic rotating gimbal offers smooth, professional-grade camera moves.
ShiftCam is in its third year of making innovative iPhone cases with a cluster of lenses that shift over Apple’s native glass. To look at a ShiftCam case is probably not much different than having a staring contest with a spider.

Anthony Schmidt is that boy, the one who loves cars so much, he has collected die-cast metal toy replicas numbering in the hundreds.
But his car play changed the day he picked up his mother’s iPhone. Anthony started photographing the miniatures from a perspective that fools the eye and makes them appear full-size and sumptuous.
That perspective also is shaped through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy on the autism spectrum.
