Best photographic accessories for the iPhone 4/4S

If there's one thing I've learned about photographers, it's that they love kit. I honestly think that there are times when they love photographic kit more than they love taking photos. Fortunately, if you're a keen photographer and you're finding yourself turning to your iPhone more and more, there's a lot of accessories out there to satisfy your lust for new gear.All the accessories listed here are compatible with the iPhone 4 and 4S.

Kogeto Dot

The Kogeto Dot is a stylish and durable attachment that clips onto the iPhone 4/4S allowing you to shoot 360° videos (or "dotspots") from the palm of your hand.

The full 360° videos are shot in one take, rather than being stitched together from individual frames.

Available in black, red, pink and green.

Price: $49.00.

Olloclip

The Olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone 4/4S that includes fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket.

The Fisheye lens captures approximately a 180 Degree field-of-view and produces some striking images. The Wide-Angle lens is great for when you need that extra field of view, approximately double that of the normal iPhone. The Macro lens applies roughly a 10X multiplier and allows you to focus the iPhone within 12-15mm of the subject.

Price: $69.99.

iPhone SLR Mount

This case-adapter combo lets you mount a Canon EOS or Nikon SLR lens to your iPhone, giving you access to powerful photographic techniques such as depth of field and manual focus otherwise not available on the iPhone.

The whole arrangement is quite unwieldy, but it is capable of taking some fantastic photographs. Eat your heart out Instagram users!

The only drawback of this device is price, but if you are the sort of person who has Nikon or Canon glass laying about the place, then you're probably not going to be that shocked by the price tag.

Note that this is only the adaptor and that you don't get a lens thrown in for that price.

Steadicam Smoothee

Based on the same technology as the big $60,000 rigs used in Hollywood, the Smoothee allows you to capture incredible video and still images without the shakes normally associated with hand-held video shot on the go, right out of the box, the very first time.

The Smoothee lets you "fly" wherever the scene takes you--up and down steps, indoors and outside, through crowds--almost anywhere, with precise, elegant control and ease.
