The following photo cellphone accessory recommendations fromMaya Stanton:

·     Inexpensivesmartphone clip-on photo lenses are easily found for under $20.  However, if you use your cellphone to takemore than just snapshots, you should have a 60mm cellphone lens that clips oneasily.  With this lens the images comein sharp even when a little further away. If you don’t want to travel with a real camera, this is highlyrecommended.  The Sirui 60 mm isavailable individually ($70), but also comes as part of a set with a carryingcase as well as a fish-eye and an 18mm wide angle, for $150.


·     Fit morein your frame by using a wide-angle lens that enables you to capture anexpansive skyline shot.  Wide-angle photosare ideal for a sunset or rooftop view, providing enough extra in the frame tomake images of your destination more dramatic. The wide-angle lens from Bower ($50) offers 50 times the magnificationwith 110-degree field of view.
