There's not a single day that I go without taking at least a few photos or videos with my smartphone. It's really incredible what we can capture now with something we can carry in our pocket wherever we go. With the launch of the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro, I teamed up with Moment to share some of my favorite items and suggestions if you want to unlock even more out of your phone and start creating. The best part is that this list isn't just for the Google Pixel 6. You can easily get a Moment case for any of the phones they support and use all of these items on this list with that phone and many phones after.

A Moment smartphone case is an obvious choice and the thing that provides the foundation for everything else on this list. It's well designed with a nice texture, thin without compromising protection, and environmentally friendly because it is compostable. The best part is that it adds magnets to your phone, and I love magnets. That means you can utilize many of the great accessories that were previously only available for MagSafe compatible iPhones and add them to your phone, even if it's an Android. There are so many possibilities available to you once you get this case.

While there are a lot of great mounts to choose from, like the car mount, if I had to choose only one, I would choose the Pro Tripod Mount for MagSafe - Landscape & Portrait. You gain a ton of flexibility with this setup because you can not only attach it to a tripod easily, and the hot shoe mount allows you to add a microphone or light to your setup. Because it's based on magnets, you can easily remove your phone from it in a second without having to mess with a bunch of clamps. This is a way more elegant solution.

Moment Deity DDCPWUS Pocket Wireless Microphone System Black 03
Moment Deity DDCPWUS Pocket Wireless Microphone System Black 05
With that hot shoe mount, you can easily attach the super small Deity Pocket Wireless Microphone System. This is shockingly feature-packed, well thought out, and great sounding for something so unbelievably tiny. As an audio engineer, sound quality is extremely important to me and the thing that I see others neglect when creating, so this is a must-have. Also, it makes it so nice to simply set your phone down and walk away from your phone while still getting great audio. On top of that, you can use it for a ton of other things beyond just your phone. I love this thing.

Now if you want to set your phone down easily, you'll need a tripod. There are many options to choose from, but if you want something that is extremely compact while also be capable, check out the Manfrotto PIXI EVO 2-Section Mini Tripod. It's something you can easily hold in your hand if you want to VLOG, adjust the ball head to get the angle you want, or fold it open and place it down anywhere, even if the surface is uneven because of the adjustable legs. The best part is that it's so light and small that it's easy to put into a bag or pocket without taking up much room at all.

If you want to be truly inspired to make something, the Moment Anamorphic Lens can help you unlock some creativity. The ability to get shots with a nice, wide, cinematic look and those gorgeous lens flares is a blast. You can use it for both video and photos. Who cares what anyone says. I think it looks cool! It seriously makes me want to just create, and you have the option of choosing a lens with a classic blue lens flare, or a gold lens flare. Now, it's important to know it does have a little bit of a learning curve, but you can combine it with something like Filmic Pro to help you "de-squeeze" the image live for video so it looks normal.
