If you ask any major photographer which smartphone has the best camera, they'll tell you it's the iPhone X. It's not surprising, though. Apple has always been known for having great phones with even greater cameras. In fact, some full-featured movies have been shot with iPhones in recent years.
Having an iPhone X means that you get more features than ever before, and can easily take professional-quality selfies just with the help of Photoshop hacks all photographers should know. That being said, an iPhone X isn't anywhere near as versatile as a DSLR.
Unless, of course, you have the right iPhone X camera attachment lenses to help you out.
If you're new to photography and are just learning how to do macro photography on an iPhone because you can't afford a Canon Rebel, you're not alone. Thankfully, tech has been developed to help you get the most of your iPhone's photography power.
The following lenses have proven themselves to add versatility, crispness, and a plethora of options for photographers that currently can only afford an iPhone X.
Why use iPhone X camera attachment lenses, anyway?
Though iPhones are really excellent tools for photography, there's only so much that they can offer in terms of shots. You can only zoom so far with an iPhone, and you would need to apply filter upon filter in order to get the same kind of effects as a regular DSLR.
Lenses allow you to get great shots that need minimal editing and even allow you to get effects that filters cannot always offer. If you want to have professional-grade shot, it makes sense to spend a little money on camera attachment lenses that will give you DSLR-quality photos.
Camera Lens Kit by AMIR
If you're looking for a massive number of iPhone X camera attachment lenses and don't want to search the entire net for them, you might want to check out the AMIR Camera Lens Kit. This kit is actually a 3-in-1 clip-on lens that adjusts to your iPhone.
This 3-in-1 kit comes with a super-wide angle lens, a fisheye lens, and a specialized macro lens that is capable of zooming in up to 10 times closer than what a regular iPhone camera would be able to do. Each lens is made of professional-grade glass to help reduce flare, fogging, and ghosting.
Any iPhone owners who want to try macro photography, portrait photography, or special effects photography will like this kit. It's just that versatile.
100° Wide Angle Lens + 15X Macro Lens Kit from Luxure
Looking for more subtle wide angle shots, or want to get exceptionally detailed macro shots? Then you might be better off with this clip-on HD camera lens kit. This offers two different iPhone X camera attachment lenses to choose from: a 15x magnifying macro lens, and a 100-degree wide angle lens.
The wide angle lens is particularly impressive. Its unique build helps reduce blurring, ghosting, glare, and other issues that can easily take away from "movement" shots. As a result, it's excellent for both flattering portraiture and great outdoor shots.
This kit is made for easy clipping, maneuvering, and changing. Needless to say, it's an ideal choice for someone who wants a highly detailed macro shot of a living creature—or for someone who wants action shots of the right model.
6 in 1 Dual Camera Lens by Migoozi
Extreme photography will often require extreme iPhone X camera attachment lenses—and that's what makes Migoozi's unique 6 in 1 camera lens such a bargain.
Two macro lenses capable of getting up to a 2000 percent zoom on the subject of your choice, a flattering (and portrait-ready) wide angle lens, an extreme fisheye lens, and a telephoto lens make virtually any kind of shot you want to make doable.
Phone Camera Lens Kit by Ansteker
Sometimes six different lenses is a bit overkill. These four professional-quality HD-ready iPhone X camera attachment lenses are designed to be a bit easier to work with without having to sift through a million different little nobs to make things work.
Affordable and easy to carry, this small lens kit has everything you need for extreme closeups (via the macro lens), flattering portraits and landscapes (via the wide angle lens), emphasis shots (via the fisheye lens), and distant shots (thanks to the telephoto lens).
All things considered, this is ideal for new photographers who really just want to explore all that their iPhone can do with a little help.
Telephoto Lens by Moment
A lot of people know the aggravation of trying to get good concert shots using an iPhone. If you're trying to show your epic sights at Coachella or other music festivals, a good telephoto lens will be the best friend your phone can have.
One of the top-rated companies to make iPhone X camera attachment lenses is Moment—and their newest telephoto lens is one of the best out there. If you already have a Moment battery case, this lens will pop right on and give you incredible zoom action for those distant stage shots. It's one of the top 10 tools for mobile photography across the board.
Unlike other camera attachment lenses, the Moment lens comes with a year-long warranty and has won a plethora of awards for its excellent design. Sure, you might need a new case to use it, but it's well worth it and will work well with all other Moment lenses you own.
6 in 1 Cell Phone Lens Kit with Case by Febote
Finding unique iPhone camera attachment lenses is a bit of a chore—even if you're using a marketplace like Amazon to find them. However, if you want to get a lot more functionality from your iPhone camera, you will need to have a wide range of lenses to do so.
The unique picks in this 6-in-1 kit from Febote is what makes this a great pick for cameraphone photographers. Along with "standard" fare like a super fisheye lens, a wide-angle lens, and typical telephoto lens, this set boosts your mobile photography with a pretty sick kaleidoscope lens too.
For lazy editors, this means that getting trippy images without the use of your Instagram filter just became possible. (You're welcome.)
2.5x External Portraits Bokeh Telepohoto Lens by Apexel
Getting a good bokeh effect in a shot used to be something that was entirely relegated to DSLR cameras—until now. Apexel's 70mm portrait lens is one of the few iPhone X camera attachment lenses that's specially designed to get that much-loved effect in portraits.
This particular lens also comes with a removable lens hood for glare reduction and is specially made to easily clip onto iPhones in a pinch. What more can you want? It's the ultimate flattering portrait lens.
Wide Angle Camera Lens with CPL Filter Lens Kit by Apexel
Another popular option among Apexel's iPhone X camera attachment lenses is their CPL Filter Wide Angle Camera Lens. Along with giving you a slightly wider shot for tight interiors and epic landscapes, this particular lens has a CPL filter built into it.
For those not in the know, CPL filters are designed to help reduce reflection in metallic surfaces and water. This allows you to get shots of crystal-clear waters (even when waters aren't really that clear), shots of glass without reflections, and epic shots of darkened skies.
