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.

Make your smartphone a thermal camera?
There are a few thermal-imaging apps for mobile devices on the market, but they are generally not very flexible and limited in effects. Instead, you can pre-order the $325 Kickstarter-backed Mu Thermal Imager, which is due for release in a few months.
The product turns your smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer into a thermal camera with a resolution of up to 19200 pixels simply by clipping it on.
