DXO One camera for iPhone.

As consumers we want our cell phones to be able to do everything from making phone calls, being a calculator and a gaming system to being our social media hub and being able to take the best photographs possible. Cell phone camera have come a long way, but they still can’t compare to a Digital SLR camera.

Some manufacturers have made lenses that clamp on and connect wirelessly to your smartphone like the Sony QX30 shown below. There are also add-on lenses to optimize the cell phone camera, such as a fish eye lens, wide-angle lens and macro lens.
