Although cool lens dials or handy tripods may seem like strange Christmas presents when the rest of your family are handing out sweaters and chocolates, there are plenty of gadgets and accessories available at the moment that’d make perfect stocking fillers for mobile photography lovers.
Whether you’re buying for someone who’s serious about their photography or just likes to mess around with Instagram now and again, we’ve collected together some of our favourite accessories that’ll help them get the best results from their phone’s camera. Or at least give them something to play around with on Christmas day.
The Swivl looks a bit odd, but it's a clever device that acts as a mini camera crew and robot rolled into one. The gadget has a built-in tripod mount, so slot your phone into the middle of it and its sensors will then start to track movement, allowing you to capture 360 degree video. So, just point the Swivl towards your "actor" and watch it bend, move and chase it around while recording video. It's a great gift idea for those who'd be bored of a simple lens clip and take their photography and video recording quite seriously. Available from Photojojo for $179.
