iPhone accessory

I fashion myself as somewhat of an amateur photographer. I’ve been fascinated with photography ever since I took Mr. Bunton’s "Intro to Photography" class way back in the ninth grade. And like a lot of people I love taking photos with my iPhone. Apple forever changed the way we take photographs when they introduced the… Read More

It wasn’t that many years ago that we were toting enormous gadgetry around – shoulder camcorders the size of a suitcase, cameras as big as a Scooby Doo lunchbox, cassette players like bricks dangling from our belts and behemoth computers large enough to block out the sun.  It wasn’t pretty, but it got the job… Read More

Kickstarter continues to be one of the places you find items that device manufacturers should have included with their new items. My most recent sponsored item is the ILDOCK for iPhone 7. While I don't have an iPhone 7, I do use a 6s Plus, and really want the ability to use SD, TFT, or lightning… Read More

The camera on my iPhone 6 Plus is okay, but it's no where as good as my Nikon D5100 DSLR.  The camera on my iPad is no where near as good as the camera on my iPhone.  Sometimes you have to use the camera you have with you, and often that's not the Nikon because it's… Read More

For the first time in quite a while, Apple is offering a phone dock.  The white plastic iPhone Lightning Dock works with iPhone 5 and newer and with iPod touch 5th generation.  It's even compatible with all Apple cases for these devices.  You'll need to use the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone or iPod… Read More

If you have been reading my posts on The Gadgeteer you probably already know that I have increased the amount of travel I do, if you haven't, I have increased the amount of travel I do. The reason I mention this is because I have previously reviewed iPhone 5 cases that either had built into… Read More

Although the iPhone has a built-in flash, it's often not bright enough to provide sufficient illumination in really low-light conditions.  Add a Knog [expose] smart light to your iPhone, and you'll have 9 LEDs shining an extra 130 lumens on your subject.  The [expose] has a built-in lithium-polymer battery, so it doesn't drain your iPhone's battery… Read More

I find as I am getting a little older, my hands just aren't as steady as they use to be. Now for most things this is not an issue, but for shooting videos with my iPhone, this becomes a real problem. Elephant Steady, a Kickstarter project from ADPLUS Co., hopes to help the un-steady like… Read More

iPhones have decent cameras, and you can snap even better photos with the built-in flash.  That flash does have its problems, though, because it's fired directly at the subject.  Photos can look harsh if you were too close to the subject, or they can be dark if you were too far away.  The Nova external… Read More

It can be hard to hold the iPhone steady while you reach for the virtual button on the screen or find a volume button to trigger the camera to snap a picture.  If you like taking pictures with your iPhone but you'd like controls that are easier to find and use, consider the Snappgrip iPhone… Read More

Okay, I recently reviewed my new Satechi ReadMate LED Desktop Magnifier, which I bought to help my aging eyes see small details, but I'm not ready to admit I need this magnifier.  The iPhone5-compliant Magnifier from THANKO, also called the Raku Raku Magnifier,  slides over your iPhone 5 to magnify the screen.  Although it specifies the iPhone… Read More

In this day and age, many young people have given up using a point and shoot camera and rely solely on their cell phone cameras for taking pictures. With the advances in camera technology in phones, minus having zoom, the quality can be on par with many point and shoots. But what happens when you… Read More
