Mobile phones have now become an all important piece of kit for any photographer. Forget making calls, the latest smart phones all pack high quality cameras and features such as free online storage and in phone editing tools.

The iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 are two perfect examples and it’s easy to see why the smart phone has almost completely killed the compact camera market.

Mobile phones might have taken over from the compact market, but rather than challenge SLR’s and CSC’s they act as the perfect partner. The latest SLRs and CSCs are all starting to feature Wifi, and this enables you to pair your camera and mobile phone.

Be it the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II or GoPro Hero6 Black, once paired the mobile app enables you to access almost all the cameras settings remotely and even remotely trigger and extend the functionality of the camera by being able to preview, download and share your images instantly.

These days if you want to get the most out of your camera kit then you’ll also need a decent phone. So this Black Friday why not check out some of the latest deals.

Keep an eye on the stores

If you’re shopping in the US, the top mobile phone retailers will be Adorama, Amazon, B&H Photo and Best Buy. UK retailers include Amazon UK, Wex, John Lewis and Currys PC World.

Make sure you check out these sites well before Black Friday so you can compare prices in advance and save your favorite action camera model in a wish list.
