It is a little bit of a specified that phone cameras are getting better and better in recent decades, to the point where you can now take professional-quality photos and videos together with your smartphone.
That’s well and accurate, but you may, like us, find that your snaps come out looking distinctly average a good deal of the time. Often, that’s because, while the camera may be strong, the lighting conditions might not be quite right, or your hand may be shaking a small bit, or some of other reasons. Input the likes of PolarPro, making amazing attachments for your smartphone to level up your mobile photography.
It has got a brand new range of accessories falling for the iPhone 11 and 11 Guru and 11 Pro Max — LiteChaser Pro, that will take your photos and video up a notch, and we wanted to run you through just what benefits you can reap from picking them up. If you believe a comprehensive filter system to get iPhone 11 can improve your photography, read on.
The core part of PolarPro’s LiteChaser system is a case on your phone, which unlocks its potential by letting you clip on several other accessories. In itself, however, it is a wonderful bit of security which looks sleek and nice, and won’t draw attention to itself when you’re not in the middle of shooting.
For full-frame shooters, a fixed f/2.8 aperture, 70-200mm zoom is an extremely popular lens for shooting sports, wildlife, reportage, events, weddings as well as portraits, making it a versatile and must-have lens for many pros. The Sony lens promises outstanding resolution, as well as attractive bokeh thanks to its eleven-bladed circular aperture.
The fast f/2 maximum aperture makes it a versatile prime lens for low-light photography. The 35mm focal length facilitates a field of view akin to human vision (excluding peripheral vision), which makes it a nice focal length for capturing scenes with natural perspective; and it’s a popular choice for photographers shooting events, weddings, or environmental portraiture, as well as interiors and architectural photography (if you can get far enough back).

Overall image quality
Evaluated on the EOS 5DS R, the new EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III is one of the best performing Canon wide-angle zoom lenses we’ve tested, achieving an excellent overall DxOMark Score of 34 points. Crucially sharpness has been significantly improved in the outer field compared to its predecessors, which has helped boost its overall sharpness score to 24 P-Mpix, compared to 18 and 17 on the Mark II and Mark I respectively. Distortion and Chromatic Aberration results have improved a little compared to the Mark II as well, although you can still expect some barrelling over 0.5%, as well as a little fringing, using the widest focal lengths between 16-18mm. Vignetting is marginally worse than on its predecessor, with some fairly heavy corner shading using the wider focal lengths and maximum apertures, and the problem is only truly resolved between 24-35mm from f/5.6.
Announced in September 2015, the $1117 Carl Zeiss Milvus 2/35mm ZF.2 Nikon (Milvus 35mm f/2) is an FX-mount Nikon lens designed specifically for full-frame Nikon DSLRs such as the D800E. The fast f/2 maximum aperture makes it a versatile prime lens for much low-light photography. The 35mm focal length facilitates a field of view akin to human vision (excluding peripheral vision), which makes it a nice focal length for capturing scenes with natural perspectives, and it’s a popular choice for photographers shooting events such as weddings or for environmental portraiture, as well as for interior and architectural photography (if you can get back far enough).
The lens features the large f/4 maximum aperture desirable for achieving fast shutter speeds; Sigma’s 4-stop image stabilizer (OS) for shake-free images of relatively static subjects, using shutter speeds as slow as 1/30 of a second; and Sigma’s hypersonic autofocus motor (HSM) for responsive AF performance.
Combined with its wide f/1.2 maximum aperture, the focal length makes it a very versatile all-round prime for low-light photography, portraiture, general use, and creative out-of-focus background bokeh effects. Optical construction utilizes 19 lens elements in 14 groups, including 1 super ED (extra-low dispersion), 2 ED, 3 HR (high refractive), 1E-HR (extra-high refractive), and 1 aspherical, and all with Z-Nano Coating to help reduce flare and ghosting. The lens’s internal focusing system guards against protruding elements during focusing, and autofocus is driven by Olympus’s MSC high-speed autofocus motor.
