This series of Otterbox iPhone cases is designed to do one thing – protect your iPhone. With three rugged layers of protection that defend against drops, scratches, bumps, and shock you can rest assured that your iPhone is nearly invincible. In fact, our own David Pegg from List25 can attest to this. He has been known to accidently destroy his phones while saving damsels in distress from fire breathing dragons, but now that he is using the Otterbox his iPhone is perfectly fine. And so are the damsels.

For the price of this Fidelio docking speaker you will not find a better deal. It’s small, loud, and has amazingly clear sound quality in both the trebles and the bass.
The mCamlite couldn’t be any easier to use. Simply pop your iPhone in the back and start shooting. With a durable aluminum frame, 37mm wide angle macro/combo lens and 180 degree external mic it’s sure to make you, along with your shots, look like a pro. The kind folks at Action Life Media actually sent us one of these and we use it whenever we go to conferences to shoot professional videos. The level of quality we get out of it is incredible despite no one on our team being anywhere close to photography inclined.
If you’re a serious photographer, or even just a wannabe, the best thing you could get to accompany your mCamlite is a tripod. The Manfrotto Compact Series is a solid choice in this department and even allows you to adjust the tripod based on whether you are shooting still shots or a video. Here at List25, to complete our mCamlite combo, we got this compact series tripod because it fits perfectly into the Manfrotto Veloce Backpack that we use to take all of our equipment with us around the country. For any travel photographer this is a must have.

As incredible as the iRig is on its own, the iRig mic makes it that much better by allowing you to record high quality vocals wherever you are.

On a personal note, I love the Mophie Juice Pack. I’m always on the road traveling to conferences and meetings so I don’t always have time to stop and charge my iPhone. By using the Juice Pack though, I can charge it on the fly. That’s one less thing to worry about.
