Getting to know your camera accessories

Every photographer owns a toolbox containing camera accessories which are heavily utilized for picture taking. When some picture-takers have a wide array of associates for all types of demand, others just buy what both feel remains a necessity to their photography.

Essential camera accessories

Camera bag and accessories

1. A Reliable Camera Bag

As quickly as you buy a camera, you will want to buy a camera bag, because you want to preserve your investment and carry it easily to locations. But selecting the right camera bag isn’t always easy. There are various bags out there, which makes it difficult to make the right decision. Most times, people buy portable camera bags only, to realize they need extra room for the camera & lenses.

2.  Extra Camera Battery

An extra battery is the indispensable accessory which will definitely come in handy, particularly when on the move. If you don’t already own an extra battery, you should try to purchase one on your next shopping. Another point to note is that batteries don’t last long when you shoot in cold temperatures, so remain prepared for a short battery experience if you’re shooting in freezing conditions.

3.  Camera LCD Protector

Although more DSLR cameras arrive with a plastic protector for this camera LCD, we still highly suggest protecting this LCD with a  regular screen protector accessory. Other times dust grows in between this LCD and this plastic screen protector and damages this LCD. A DSLR camera with the scratched LCD isn’t going to have a good resell value, so that is the initial thing one should perform to keep it free from scratches.

4. Padded Neck Strap for DSLR Cameras

The neck straps that come with DSLR cameras are so uncomfortable. When you carry some heavy camera and lens combo on your neck, a conventional camera strap could leave you with painful blisters after only a few minutes of wearing these cameras.

5. Lens Cleaning Camera Accessories

Dust & dirt in front of this lens element reduces lens contrast, resulting in cloudy looking images. Hence, you should always keep the lens front & back elements clear at all times. There are various brands to pick from & any of these optical resolutions should operate fine.
