The latest smartphone cameras are beginning to surpass even the most high-end point-and-shoot digital cameras. Currently funding on Kickstarter, the Beastgrip takes smartphone photography add-ons to a new level. Compatible with just about every smartphone on the market, the Beastgrip lets you use lenses, flashes and filters from your existing SLR kit. The rig keeps a 37mm threaded lens mount tightly lined up with the lens on the phone, so essentially the limit of your phone photography is up to your existing gear (and budget).
