If you're looking for a shotgun mic that provides great audio quality but won't break the bank, you should take a look at RØDE's NTG2, which features broadcast-quality sound, low noise circuitry, P48 phantom power or 1.5V AA battery power, and more. You can get the RØDE NTG2 Shotgun Microphone now for $268.95.
JOBY's GorillaPods are one of the most popular pieces of filmmaking gear. They're tough, they're inexpensive, and you can wrap those articulating arms around just about anything. If you've got a heavier camera setup, lights, or other gear, the GorillaPod 5K Kit, which includes both the 5K stand and the BallHead 5K, can handle an 11lb. payload and features a 360-degree panning bed and 90-degree tilt. Get the JOBY GorillaPod 5K Kit now for about $110.
Want to make your smartphone cinematography smoother and sexier? You might want to take a look at the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 handheld gimbal.

The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Gimbal is priced at $124 right now...not a huge price cut, but a price cut none the less.
