The Best Affordable Outdoor Camera: Kogeto Dot iPhone Lens Accessory

I'd like to take better wide landscape shots when I'm traveling, but I'm not interested in investing in a really expensive camera.


A wide-angle photo might do a decent job of capturing your buddies inadvisably skinny-dipping in a glacial lake at 6 a.m. But a video in 360-degree format would be even better (I'm thinking viral).

Several lens-mounted gadgets turn an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S into a 360-degree video shooter, but Kogeto Dot ($49) has emerged as the best. The device, which was developed with the help of a Kickstarter campaign, comes with a piece of hardware that attaches to your phone’s camera lens and a free app that makes it all work. Kogeto has said that the technology will be available for certain Android phones this year, but nothing has hit the street yet.
