Six insanely innovative PhotoJojo tools transform iPhone photography

Clever cases and lenses for iPhones equip a phone to transform into a full-fledged camera at a fraction of the cost. These exciting innovations from Photojojo are creating opportunities for businesses to step up their photo game.

Gone are the days where you have to have a nice, expensive camera to take some awesome photos. These days, all you need is your iPhone. With the right iPhone accessory, you can apply filters, switch lenses, shoot 360-degree videos, and prop your iPhone up with an awesome tripod. You no longer have to accept bad cameras just because they’re a part of your phone. Here are six insanely innovative tools that will transform your iPhone photography:

SLR Mount

SLR Mount
– There are countless apps that allow you to take DSLR-esque pictures right from your iPhone, but it’s not really the same, is it? No matter how many apps you use, each picture seems to be lacking a little something. Well, now your iPhone photos don’t have to. This case-adapter combo allows you to “mount your Canon EOS or Nikon SLR lenses to your iPhone…giving your phone powerful depth of field and manual focus.” For $249, you can give your iPhone pictures the power and clarity they deserve without having to buy a whole new camera.


– Do you like the look of a classic camera, but you prefer using your iPhone to take pictures? The iPhone Rangefinder comes complete with “a shutter button, viewfinder, aperture numbers, two loops for a camera strap, and a tripod mount!” What’s unique about this product is that isn’t all just for looks—although, it has that, too—it’s also about utility. You can actually use the viewfinder and the shutter button, not to mention all the lenses you can use, so you can capture the perfect picture every time. If you’re looking for just the Rangefinder case, it will only cost you about $65. If you want the case and all the awesome magnetic lenses, you’re looking to spend just under $100.

Panorama Lens

Panorama Lens
– For just $79, you’ll have the ability to shoot a panoramic, 360-degree video. While this is pretty exciting already, it gets even better. The captured video is completely interactive. This means “you can pan your finger over your phone’s screen to see all that was captured with the lens’ 360-degree eye.” It doesn’t get cooler than that.

Card Readers for iPads

CF and SD Card Readers
– If you have a DSLR and want to view your images on your iPad without a mess or a fuss, a CF or SD card reader may do the trick. There are no cables involved, just the little card. This is perfect for both professionals and those who take pictures as a hobby. These card readers range in price from $15 to $30. It’s compatible with either the iPad 1 or 2 and it’s extremely easy to use.

Jelly Filters

Jelly Camera Phone Filters
– Have you ever felt that your iPhone pictures need a little something extra, a little flair? The Jelly Camera phone filters lets you customize your photos’ effects. Each of these little phone filters attaches to a key ring and are completely reusable. Just snap your chosen filter on, and that’s it! You can choose between the kaleidoscope, starbursts, or wide angle filters, and the pack of three is only $15.

Lens Dial

Lens Dial
– The Lens Dial costs $249 and comes with three adjustable lenses. All you have to do is spin the dial to access the tree lenses—telephoto, wide angle, and fisheye. It also comes with two tripod mounts, so you can choose between portrait or landscape shots. “The Lens Dial: like a new pair of spectacles for your iPhone!”

These iPhone tools will erase everything you thought about the quality and ability of camera phones. Each of these tools can be used by the professional and the casual photo-taker alike, making for fantastically unique photos every time. Photo-taking tools are becoming increasingly affordable for the masses, and the six above are no exception. Who needs a professional-grade camera when you have your iPhone?
