Dear Santa, Please Pimp Up my IPhone

Christmas season is officially here, and it's time to send the annual letter to Santa. Considering he's got so many people to please, we made it short and sweet for him this year: Dear Santa, Please pimp up my IPhone. 

Enhance its Eyes - Lenses and Lights

Since we're in the business of using Iphones for Iphonography, one of the things we want is to enhance our Iphone "eyes" with new lenses and a cool flash. Our picks this year are :

Olloclip 4 in 1

 Includes fisheye, wide-angle and 2 macro lens, and is a nice and practical kit to have handy  to start playing with. Get it here.

iPro Lens System Trio Kit

A little more upscale in terms of price, and professional in terms of lens range. Includes Macro, Super Wide lens and 2 telephoto lenses. Get it here.

Moment Lenses

At a more intermediate price range, moment lenses offer sleek design and a good overall balance in terms of image quality, and practicality. Plus, they also have some lovely cases with rubberized grip and shutter button. Find Moment products here

Nova Flash

We also love the Nova off camera wireless flash for iphone for its lightweight and discreet design, plus its warm/cool light feature, and now they are offering a whole mint nova studio pack for even more light. Get Nova products here.

For our Iphone's legs we want stability, but also, lightweight, sleek and flexible. Our picks are: 

Grip Tight Gorillapods

This super cool tripod is flexible enough to be a yogi master and is great because you can wrap it around almost anything to get unique angles for your shots. Gorillapods are available here

Lollipods

These are also on our Christmas list, as not only do they have great stability and are lightweight, but they also come in pretty colours. Get them here.

Dress it Up - Cases

We've mentioned the Moment Cases already, and also definitely want the LifeProof waterproof shockproof cases, for their super reliable protective features. We also love some of the designer cases such as this elegant Diane Von Furstenberg foldover case and this super sleek Isaac Reina case


Make it Fly (drones)

Drones are all the rage right now and we want our own pair of wings for a sky camera high that even a butterfly would envy. To pick out the right one, it's important to take some things into consideration, and myfirstdrone.com have put togeather some great tips here. Now for our choices: 

Phantom 3 Professional Camera Drone

This sleek white and gold banded drone is one of the best in the market, and allows for 4K video and 12 megapixel photos, as well as having a gimbal stabilizer. It's a bit on the steep side in terms of cost, but hey, it's Christmas! Get it here

Parrot Bebop Drone

At a much lower price range, the parrot bebop has a 14 megapixel fisheye camera, and 180 degree vision controlled by the pilot. Get it here!
