Yup, that's right — separate lens attachments for your iPhone can give you impressive results that can rival the best DSLR under the right conditions. Most lenses include fisheyes, macros, and even telescopic or super wide-angle field of view. And if you're doing something like shooting video with your iPhone, a lens can make all the difference.

Get pro photos and video with the best lenses for iPhone videography

You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.

Even though the iPhone can already take pretty good video and photo, having lenses increases the quality of your videos and photos. Plus, some of these lenses offer a perspective or field of view that you just can't get with the iPhone by itself, so it really ups your overall game. Even boring and mundane subjects can look interesting through a fisheye or macro lens, which is why these are the best lenses for iPhone videography.

We're big fans of Moment, because the company offers so many high-quality lenses and accessories. You'll need to buy a new iPhone case and drop-in lens mount insert each time you upgrade your iPhone, but the lenses themselves are virtually future-proof, so you'll have them for the long haul. You'll get the best results with the Moment system, because the lenses are secured and won't shift around while you're shooting video or taking photos. 

If you're in the market for something cheaper, the Criacr Phone Camera Lens comes with a few different lenses and just clips onto any iPhone with or without a case. It's more or less future-proof, since it's not made for one specific iPhone.
