The Olloclip is a lens attachment for your iPhone that allows to you take advantage of up to 4 different lens types; macro, wide angle, and fisheye. The 4-in-1 systems even feature two macro lenses, 10x and 15x zoom. It's one of the easiest accessories to stow away in a pocket or bag and pull out when you need it.
3. Sellfie stick
Selfie sticks are all the rage these days and if you want a good one, Sellfie is it. Not only can it pair with an iPhone and Android phone simultaneously and switch on the fly, it's carbon fiber construction makes it super durable and extra lightweight. The mount is one of the best I've used and offers padding so it doesn't scratch up your iPhone. I had no trouble fitting the 6 Plus either.

If you're opposed to selfie sticks, try a Bluetooth shutter remote instead. In combination with a sturdy tripod, there's no limit to what you can create using time lapse mode, long exposure apps, and any of the other third party camera apps available in the App Store.
