iPhone 7 Plus in Camera Phones

The Apple iPhone 7 is a fantastic phone for photography and if you're someone that updates your phone regularly, the chances are you might already own one.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus feature a 12 megapixel camera with built-in optical image stabilisation. An f/1.8 max aperture allows you to create images in low light with ease and isolate your subject beautifully. If you're using the iPhone 7 for photography there are some core accessories that you shouldn't be without and here we round up these key items:

 

 A Rugged Case 

Otterbox

As a photographer you are sometimes forced to adopt strange and precarious positions for your craft. This can sometimes lead to the phone being accidentally dropped, bashed and worst case scenario, stood on. Luckily the iPhone 7 is water resistant, but giving it extra protection against mishaps won't hurt. We recommend a sturdy case such as the Otterbox Defender, which has robust, 3-layer protection against shocks and also has a built-in screen protector. It doesn't get in the way of the camera either, like some flip style cases can, so that's a bonus.

Lens Adapters

Olloclip

Despite the built-in awesomeness of the iPhone 7 and 7Plus cameras, some scenarios will look better if they were shot with a wide-angle or close-up lens. Never fear though, you don't have to rely on distorting apps and effects for this as there are dedicated kits on the market to enable you to enhance your iPhone photography with professional lens adapters. One such lens kit is the Olloclip CORE Lens Set, which comes with fisheye, super-wide and Macro attachments, all with a handy rotatable slide-on clip. An ACTIVE Lens Set is also available, with telephoto and wide-angle attachments.

Lightning To USB Stick

Omars

If you like to do a lot of post-processing work on your desktop PC and you don't have cloud based storage, then a USB to lightning storage device will be a great help. Transfer your iPhone images to the stick and gain access to them on your PC by simply plugging it into a USB slot. Simple! You'll need something with a large capacity as you'll be dealing with big image files so a device of 64GB or more, like the OMARS Irisation USB Flash Drive will be ideal.

Smartphone Tripod

Joby tripod

If you're planning on taking group photos, but don't fancy the idea of the dreaded selfie stick, or you simply want a bit more stability to your photo, consider a tripod. There are many on the market but those with flexible legs for wrapping around objects or posing the tripod on any terrain are ideal. The Joby GripTight GorillaPod is a good choice.

Portable Charger

When out and about with your iPhone, all that photography can take its toll on your battery. Despite the fact that the iPhone 7 has up to 2 hours more battery life than its predecessor, to keep shooting all day you may need a top up, and this is where a portable charger comes in. Available in many shapes and sizes, simply plug your charger into the phone and hey presto, you can keep shooting while it recuperates some juice. The Anker Power Core 20100 has the capability to charge the iPhone 7 at least 6 times over before it needs recharging.

Selfie Stick

Yes, despite their reputation selfie sticks, when used responsibly, can actually be a great photography tool. Use common sense when wielding one and they can be ideal for capturing yourself with a group or friends or taking in the full background of a scene, with you in it too. They are available with bluetooth triggers to make the process of taking photos even easier. BlitzWolf's selfie stick offering gives you zoom control and the ability to switch cameras right there on the selfie stick handle, too.
