Capturing you living your best life in the summer of ’18 is a job we don’t recommend entrusting solely to smashed-screen iPhones. Whether you do it for the love of the art or for those Instagram double taps, elevating your picture game means getting equipped with the best in photo-taking technology.

We’ve rounded up our favorite products to make your memories anything but disposable. From a user-friendly drone that's primed for taking selfies to a retro-style Polaroid camera, action-ready GoPro, and accessories that’ll upgrade what you already have at your disposal, we’ve got lit pics covered from all bases.

Make this summer one to remember from every possible angle and filter through our must-haves below.

The latest GoPro Hero should be your go-to for getting this summer’s memories on film. It features a 2-inch touchscreen for instant playback, plus voice control for total hands-free capabilities. Built to withstand the elements, different head and body mounts also mean it can go where your iPhone can’t, and the chest harness is no small nod to this year’s utility vest trend.

There's nothing polarizing about instant photo’s place in 2018. The OneStep 600 is our pick of affordable retro cameras you can buy right now, and its ease of use (fixed-focus lens, simple exposure controls and built-in flash) makes it the best option for novices, with vintage-style results on color or B&W film. It's also the best way to document your street style looks.

Underwater

Waterproof Phone Case

$10

Mpow

Buy at amazon

Taking your photos beneath the surface doesn’t have to rely on disposal Kodaks with poor image quality. This Mpow waterproof case utilizes your iPhone’s more than capable camera technology (though preferably no model earlier than a 7, obvs) by keeping your device protected while also allowing you to use the volume controls to take clear underwater photos and video footage.

Drone

Air Drone Camera

$200

Air Selfie

Buy at Urban Outfitters

The future of picture taking is in the air, and there’s a serious buzz about it. This AirSelfie Drone camera is an excellent introduction to the popular technology, compatible with both iOS and Android interfaces for ease of control and using brushless motor turbo propellors for safe retrieval. Manual selfies are a thing of the past.
