Best photography accessories for the P30 Pro Android Central 2021

The P30 Pro has rightfully received glowing praise for its amazing camera performance, in particular the ingenious periscope telephoto lens that lets you optically zoom in 5X and with software assistance get up to 10X. But to get the most out of all the cool photography features, you're probably going to want some extra gear to keep your phone nice and steady.

Mount your phone anywhere: Moman Phone Clamp Stand with Universal Bottle Cap Adapter

This clamp just fits the P30 Pro so you really won't have to worry about it slipping out, and it features the standard threading to screw into any standard tripod. If you don't have a tripod, this clamp comes with a bottle cap adapter that lets you make a DIY stand with any standard soda bottle.

Don't let the fun die: Anker PowerCore PD 20000

The P30 Pro has outstanding battery life that typically lasts more than 24 hours — even with heavy use, but the one day when it did need to be charged before bed was after an intensive 4-hour photo walk. That's why it's good to have a quality battery pack on hand just in case your phone quits before you do.

Make your photos and videos stand out even more!

In my experience shooting photos and videos with the P30 Pro, my biggest struggle is to keep the phone steady. Sure, there's some optical stabilization in play, but really you're going to get the best results using the time-lapse or light painting modes with a quality tripod.

That all starts with a phone mount for a tripod, and I recommend the Moman Phone Clamp Stand with Universal Bottle Cap Adapter because the price is right and the bottle cap adapter is a novel idea that opens up creative opportunities wherever you happen to be. Paired with the EVO Gimbals Flexible Tripod, you're basically set to tackle any photo or video scenario.
