From HD Instant Cameras to Sticky Smartphone Mounts

The top February 2017 mobile photography concepts express that consumers are looking to make the most of small-scale photography devices in one of two ways. They are either making the most of the powerful photography tools on their smartphones with special accessories and attachments, or are seeking smaller handheld solutions for specific tasks.

Just as a DSLR camera can be customized with a number of lenses and settings, a number of smartphone accessories are launching to help "phonetographers" get the highest quality image results. Examples of this include the LenzO phone case for underwater photography and the small-scale Hobbico C-Me drone, which is ideal for taking aerial photos with a smartphone.

While smartphones have long been the go-to pocket-friendly photography devices for most consumers, dedicated devices like the Polaroid Pop Instant Camera, Moment and the TwoEyes 360-degree VR Camera are emerging to specifically capture HD, video and virtual reality content.
