Mevo Live Event Camera

iPhone users now have an incredible video package available to them through Mevo. Their live event camera allows you to edit and stream video live on the fly – it’s like an entire multi-camera rig shrunk down into a single package.

Olloclip Lenses

Olloclip has been the leader in add-on lens kits since the early days of iPhone. They continue to lead the pack with premium optics customized for iPhone and iPad featuring fisheye, super-wide and macro 15x lenses to help you take pro-level photographs and video.

Olloclip does support a couple older Galaxy phone models, but if you’re using the latest Galaxy S7, we love Samsung’s lens cover for the S7. It offers a 2x telephoto and a 110° wide-angle lens.
