Tips For Travellers: Turning Your Phone Into The Ultimate Camera

With the latest gadgets, turn your phone into a holiday camera and never miss a picture.

 Holiday photography is a passion for many of us looking to capture our best experiences and share them with friends and family back home. Until recently, taking professional quality pictures required slogging heavy and expensive camera equipment around with you – a tedious and tiresome chore, as any amateur photographer will tell you! However, thanks to some nifty new gadgets, it’s easier than ever to turn your humble smart phone into a high-quality, almost professional camera. Armed with the newest tech, anyone can participate in the photography revolution.


Of course, your first port of call for improving camera quality should be the lenses. With these lens attachments, you’ll get more out of every picture.

Olloclip Active Lens – This wide angle lens clips nicely onto an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Allowing for big panoramic shots, this lens is perfect for capturing beautiful landscape environments.

Moment Lenses – There are two types of Moment Lenses: Moment Wide allows for wide panoramic shots, while Moment Tele enables double the zoom. The lenses are simple to use in conjunction with the Moment app.

Olympus Air A01 – This gadget is all about giving the user options. Whether you want optical zoom, performance enhancements or picture quality variation, the Olympus Air A01 can give it to you.


There is no point in having great picture quality if you can’t aim your camera at anything. Here are a few devices that will help you position your phone.

Life-Phorm All-in-One Positioning Device – This transportable and flexible tripod allows its users to position their phone, tablet or camera at the perfect angle. Depending on what device you are using, this tripod will easily change its shape, eliminating the need for multiple tripods.
