The Top 5 TikTok Accessories For 2023

March 02, 2023 4 min read

Are you looking to up your TikTok game? Of course you are! With the platform's explosive growth in recent years, it's become a powerful tool for creators, businesses, and influencers alike. Unliuke a lot of other social media platforms, Tik Tok is a very collaborative platform. With popular video and audio trends emerging daily, it’s easy to engage with other creators and get your content out there. While all you really need is a smartphone to create Tik Tok videos, there is a lot of gear out there that can help you take your Tik Toks to the next level. 

That’s where we come in. Movo gear has always been created by creators and for creators, so we’ve got you covered when it comes to equipment to improve the quality of your Tik Toks. Here are the top 5 TikTok equipment and accessories you should get:

1: Smartphone microphone

The built-in microphone on your phone may be fine for casual use, but if you're serious about creating quality TikTok videos, a dedicated smartphone microphone is a great upgrade.  A good mic will pick up clearer audio, reduce background noise, and improve the overall sound quality of your videos. 

To start with, our most popular microphone, the VXR10 shotgun mic is beloved by creators everywhere. A versatile mic for both cameras and smartphones, the VXR10 is an amazing and affordable mic that will give you crystal clear audio. (Note: for use with iPhones without a headphone jack, you’ll need a 3.5mm to lightning dongle. For similar Androids, you’ll need a 3.5mm to USB dongle. )

Another great option is a microphone that plugs directly into your smartphone. Check out Movo’s MA5L shotgun microphone for iPhone lightning, or the MA5C for USB-C devices.

2: Video light

Lighting is crucial for making your TikTok videos look polished and professional. A ring light is a popular lighting accessory that attaches to your phone or camera and provides soft, even lighting for your face.

The Movo VGC-30 LED Ring Light is a professional quality ring light that’s within reach for your average TikTok creators. It has adjustable brightness levels, a remote control, and a built-in phone holder, making it easy to use and customize for your videos.

If you’re looking for something smaller that you can take on the go, check out Movo’s LED-XS, which gives you bright, rechargeable light that is perfectly balanced with warm and cool LEDs in a compact form factor that fits easily in your bag or pocket. 

3: Tripod

A tripod is essential for stable, steady shots in your TikTok videos, especially if you’re trying to catch up with the latest dance trend. Whether you're filming yourself or someone else, a tripod ensures that your camera stays in one place and doesn't shake or move.

 The Movo MV-T5 Aluminum Tripod is a versatile and durable option for TikTok creators. It's lightweight and has adjustable legs and an adjustable pan head, allowing you to frame your perfect shot. 

For a highly portable option, check out Movo’s MV-T1 mini tripod. It’s super versatile, adjustable and the legs fold together to create a comfortable hand grip. 

4: Smartphone lens

Today’s smartphone cameras are amazing. But sometimes, it can help your creativity to switch your camera up with a removable lens for smartphone cameras. If you want to explore some more experimental video techniques for your next Tik Tok, look no further than Movo’s SPL series. You may have seen lenses that clip on your phone, but trust us, we’ve got the best glass to bring you high quality video, not just unusual shots and angles. 

 A wide-angle lens increases the field of view of your camera, allowing you to capture more of the scene without having to move your camera further away. Movo’s SPL-WA will help you capture more of the world around you while filming your next Tik Tok. 

You may have seen Tik Tok videos with dramatic fish-eye effect, which creates a circular, slightly distorted field of view. (For the 90s babies, think Busta Rhymes videos…) Movo makes a great fisheye lens which will give you an amazingly distinct look for your next video. 

5: Wireless audio

If you’ve spent any time on Tik Tok recently, you’ve probably seen creators holding tiny microphones. Movo’s latest generation of wireless mics are small but mighty, giving you professional-grade audio in an ultracompact package. 

The Wireless Mini series is great for creators on the go, giving you crisp audio for interviews, skits, and more. The Wireless Mini has variations built for iPhone, USB-C smartphones and cameras. 

For videographers looking to bring pro audio capture to their Tik Toks, and looking for a system that would work as well on a film shoot as in frame of your next Tik Tok, check out Movo’s WMX-2 professional wireless lavalier microphone systems. 

Whether you’re brand new to Tik Tok, or you’re already a viral star, everyone could benefit from some new gear to take their content to the next level. We’re here to help with whatever your gear needs are, and we can’t wait to see what you create! Don’t forget about us when you hit it big on Tik Tok!
