The iPhone Lens Dial
The iPhone's camera is pretty good, but if you want to turn things up a notch, the iPhone lens dial is a cool-looking magnetized accessory that gives photographers access to three different lenses just by rotating the disc.
The accessory -- priced at $249 -- has three glass lenses: a wide angle (0.7x), fisheye (0.33x) and telephoto (1.5x), as well as an additional macro lens for the iPhone 5/5s version. Two tripod mounts are included.
Tilt and shift
You can do more than create makeshift macro and pinhole lenses with your smartphone. How about a tilt and shift effect?
By using a cheap CCTV lens, such as a Goyo 4.5mm, you can manufacture a DIY Tilt-Shift; take it apart, then combine the front element with one of the back elements using plastic screws. Once complete, using rubber bands and a smartphone case, you can put the makeshift lens in place.

How to create an iPhone ring light
Ring lights are used by photographers to give shadows less glow and soften images. While often expensive, you can make your iPhone a ring light for less than $20.
You will need a rubber case for your phone, velcro, scissors and an LED camping light. After cutting the velcro to the width of your phone case and sticking the tap to the ring -- ideally with the lights 'on' button centered at the opposite side of the velcro -- all you need to do is line up line up the ring and the lens of your camera and velcro one to the other.
