Even if the photographic properties of the iPhone 5 with the improved exceptions in twilight and the - for smartphones - quite decent optics are quite good, there are still some cases in which you would like something else. For example, with every new iPhone version I notice that you can only take macro shots to a limited extent. For example, it is not possible to approach an object within 5 cm and still get a sharp picture. The auto focus on the iPhone has reached its limit at a distance of about 6-7 cm. If you still want to take macro shots, you can buy additional lenses for the [iPhone-> iphone]. These usually expand the photographic possibilities of the iPhone by several areas.
The known Olloclip offers, for example, three lenses in one system: a macro, a wide angle and a fisheye. With the iTele, [Rollei-> rollei] has a telephoto lens that offers an 8x optical zoom and [Walimex-> walimex] also offers a lens set that includes a wide-angle lens and a fish-eye lens for the iPhone. With the Eye Scoope, Thumbs-Up also offers a zoom lens for the iPhone 4. You should always make sure that you check before buying that the lens in question is compatible with the existing iPhone version. Because the iPhone 3, 4 and 5 differ in thickness, some systems only fit a certain iPhone version.
Here is a list again with the corresponding lenses and lens sets:
If you want to buy a [tripod for the iPhone-> iphone tripod], you can have a look at the [Joby GorillaPod-> joby-gorillapod] and the [Gilf tripod adapter-> gilf]:
