Travel photography is an exciting activity for both amateur and professional photographers.
However, to make the most of your smartphone as a camera, it is necessary to use the right photographic accessories. In this article, we will introduce you to the best smartphone accessories for travel photography.
The first photo accessory we recommend is the smartphone lens. Smartphone lenses are convenient accessories that easily attach to your mobile phone's camera. They allow you to capture professional-quality images with your smartphone. They are compatible with all smartphone brands, whether you have a Samsung or a Google Pixel, the lens attaches in the same way.
According to our customers, the most useful smartphone lenses for travel are telephoto and wide-angle lenses.
The Pro-2 Telephoto Lens allows you to zoom up to 2.5x on a distant subject, while wide-angle lenses enable you to take wider photos, ideal for landscapes.
But why should I buy a lens for my smartphone when it already has a wide-angle and a telephoto lens?
It's important to note that on iPhones, the main camera offers the best performance in terms of image quality. However, when you switch to portrait mode or x0.5, the iPhone automatically switches to a lesser-quality secondary sensor. Additionally, smartphones use digital image processing with algorithms, which can make the bokeh inaccurate, especially on fine details such as hair, fur, or vegetation.
This is where Pixter smartphone lenses come into play and make a difference. Each Pixter lens is placed on the main camera of your smartphone, meaning you can enjoy a telephoto or wide-angle function while retaining the benefits and quality of the main sensor. Moreover, unlike smartphones, Pixter's Pro-2 Telephoto Lens offers high-quality optical zoom. Indeed, the x2.5 zoom provides a more aesthetic and realistic bokeh.
At Pixter, we offer a wide range of smartphone lenses with focal lengths ranging from 8 mm to 60 mm, compatible with all smartphones.
Flexible tripod, to fix It anywhere
The flexible tripod is another essential photo accessory for travel photographers. With a flexible tripod, you can easily stabilize your smartphone to capture clear and sharp images. Flexible tripods are also very convenient for low-light or night mode shooting.
At Pixter, we offer a universal flexible tripod, compatible with all smartphones. It allows you to place your smartphone in the desired position for stable photo-taking thanks to its 360° swivel head. Plus, our flexible tripod is very light and easy to carry, making it a perfect travel accessory for nomadic photographers. It comes with a Bluetooth remote that allows you to trigger the photo shoot from afar, very useful if you're alone!
In addition to smartphone lenses, Pixter also offers smartphone cords that provide both freedom and elegance during your photo sessions.
The cords are compatible with all smartphones and allow you to keep your phone within reach while freeing up your hands to take photos. They are made from superior quality materials to ensure great durability and an elegant appearance. Pixter cords are available in different styles and colors to meet your fashion and photography needs. With a Pixter cord, you're sure to never miss a photo and capture every precious moment of your travels.
In summary, smartphone lenses and flexible tripods are essential photo accessories for travel photographers. Smartphone lenses allow you to capture professional-quality images, while flexible tripods enable you to stabilize your smartphone for clear and sharp images.
