Every year, the camera in your iPhone gets better. Every year, the controls stay the same. Take full advantage of your most used camera with the Pictar iPhone Camera Grip. It gives you a dual-stage shutter release that lets you lock focus and exposure like an SLR, as well as wheels for taking control of exposure compensation, zoom, ISO, and/or shutter speed, a toggle for the selfie camera, a strap for preventing drops, a cold shoe for external mics/flashes, and a standard tripod mount. And since it uses high-frequency sound waves of 18500-20000 kHz to operate, its battery life ranges in the months, not hours or days.
Staying connected is important to all of us, and equally so if you're part of a group exploring the great outdoors. Beartooth ensures you can reach everyone in your party whether your phone has a signal or not. This sleek, pocket-friendly receiver pairs with your existing device, and uses its own radios to let you talk, text, and find everyone in your group, all via a familiar interface. It's great for expeditions and campers, but can also come in handy for concerts, conferences, and crowded amusement parks.

Ever thinner devices mean ever smaller batteries. You can extend your phone's life with a battery case, but at the end of the day, it's just another gadget to charge. The Ampware Hand Crank iPhone Case gives you an alternative. Using an on-board generator, five minutes of cranking can deliver a full hour of normal use or five hours of standby juice, guaranteeing you'll have power when you need it most while keeping your iPhone 6 or 6S safe from drops and bumps.
The iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. Yet most photography enthusiasts wish they could push it farther. The Zeiss ExoLens lets you do exactly that. Leveraging the German company's legendary optic expertise, these add-on lenses come in three models — wide-angle, telephoto, and macro — and offer outstanding sharpness and contrast from one edge to the other. The macro lens also holds the distinction of being the first add-on lens to offer a zoom function, and all three lenses attach to a machined aluminum bracket that doubles as a tripod adapter and cold shoe mount for flashes and other accessories.
Apple's iOS devices have already proven their worth for recording everything from interviews to movie footage. But as handy as they are, their microphones leave something to be desired. The Shure MV88 iOS Microphone is an easy way to upgrade their audio chops. Compatible with all Lightning-equipped devices, it uses matched cardioid and bidirectional cartridges set in an all-metal enclosure with holes on the sides to ensure clear stereo audio. The companion app lets you control the gain, EQ, stereo width, and gives you access to 5 DSP preset modes to instantly optimize it for speech, vocals, acoustic performances, or loud environments.
Although the App Store is home to tons of VR software, virtual reality on the iPhone has mostly been an afterthought when compared to Android-focused solutions like Google Cardboard or Samsung's Gear VR. Figment VR is out to change all that. This combination headset and case lets you snap in your iPhone 6S or 6S Plus and enjoy immersive, high-quality VR right on your phone. Its built-in case offers protection, and its unique folding design means you don't have to remove it every time you want to go somewhere — just fold it to the rear and use/pocket your phone like you normally would. Available in white or black.
