These June 2016 mobile photography innovations range from custom smartphone lenses to Polaroid photo apps that revive the nostalgic art form. While Polaroid-style cameras have made a recent resurgence, those seeking convenience can re-create their visual style on their smartphone in seconds -- and without needing to invest in the nostalgic gadget.

In addition to the revival of retro photography gadgets, other June 2016 mobile photography innovations include 360-degree camcorders and photo-scanning apps that are ideal for creatives. The products will appeal to travelling videographers or artists who are looking to translate snapped mobile imagery into printed works they can later use in a large scale project.

Remixed photo platform interfaces and sports-themed social media filters round off this list of mobile photography innovations. These examples are reflective of smartphone photography's evolution and illustrate how the past-time is allowing for more creativity than ever before.
