The Benefits of Physical Accessories
hey guys...curious if anybody here uses any physical accessories to enhance their photo/videography. if not, i wanna share some examples. [note: i'm using a ipod touch 4 and iphone 3gs]
1. THE TRIPOD + TRIPOD MOUNT
the thing i LOVE about iOS devices is the accellorometer. with this i'm able to hold the tripod upside down to catch some shots i otherwise wouldn't be able to get. [because lets face it, the zoom on the iphone, or ANY digicam, is horrible]
raw footage of the result:
2. WIDE ANGLE/FISHEYE LENS
i have a wide angle/macro lens coming in the mail, and hope to test that out when i get it. but the fisheye is EXTREMELY useful...especially for you that like to shoot from the hip. it allows you to get a much wider view of your subject, without having to be so far from it:
or it'll give you a much wider scope of whats going on:
i've been looking into getting into portable lighting for shoots...but haven't found anything cheap.
when i upgrade to the iphone 4 [or 4S?] i'm DEFINITELY gonna invest in a set of color gels to tint the flash. it looks like this:
the results come out like this: [shot on a film camera using a double exposure with a RED flash and BLUE flash]

I currently use the glif tripod adapter for iPhone 4/4S and want both the olloclip (wide angle/fisheye/macro lens and bubo accessories. The later is highly professional and would dramitcally increase possibilities for photography on a iPhone.

I would like to have a nicer window mount for the iPhone 4S, or possibly a suction cup mount for the top or outside of my car, with a protective shield to keep it from dying when contacted by rocks or other debris at high velocities. A nice 3 point suction cup system would rock! I'll keep holding my breath for now though.
The Olloclip looks pretty cool, but the one thing that will keep me from buying one is the terrible CA at the outer edges of the lens. You can REALLY see the distortions. I'm not sure if that would be worth $70 dollars to me or not.
