Moment is the most established brand in iPhone photography accessories, and their photography cases were some of the first ever made for iPhone. The new MagSafe Photography Case is compatible with any of the Moment M-series lenses. It also uses MagSafe technology to work with various Moment mounts and tripods.
While it's not a case per se, the JOBY GorillaPod is an amazing accessory for creating videos with the iPhone 12. It works as a tripod, lighting system, and microphone all in one multifunctional unit. The flexible arms and mounts can be used in various ways, making this the most versatile accessory on our list.
Clip on, clip off
For a quicker alternative to a photography case, Shuttermoon makes clip-on lenses that you can attach over your iPhone 12 camera to enhance photos. This kit includes a telephoto, fisheye, macro, polarized, and wide lens that are all interchangeable with the clip-on system.

If you thought Instagram invented the photo filter, then maybe it's time you tried the real thing. Photography filters have been around for ages, but the real deal is much more impressive. LiteChaser Pro brings us this kit that includes both a photography case and three different interchangeable filters to enhance photography and film.
Built-in Ring Light
Ring lights have become a go-to for vloggers, influencers, and Instagrammers who need to create good lighting on the go. This case from Orda takes the guesswork out of the selfie with a built-in ring light that you can use on either side.

This one also includes a drama filter, so you can try out a physical filter for a change.
If you're more into taking videos on the go, then a multifunctional tripod is an absolute must.
