About Photo & Video
What are the essential accessories that every photographer should have?
The accessories you need will depend on the type of photography or video you shoot, but here are some of the essentials beneficial to all photographers:
Tripods are a great way to keep your camera still when you’re aiming for a particularly tricky shot. They provide a steady surface for long-exposure shots, eliminating the prospect of blurry images. The only drawback to tripods is that they can be rather cumbersome and heavy, so we recommend choosing a compact tripod if you’re travelling, as these can easily be carried in bags and backpacks.
Remote shutter release
A remote shutter release is extremely useful for taking photos without touching your camera, thus preventing the potential for vibration and shaking. This accessory is extremely effective when used in tandem with a tripod.
You don’t want to run out of battery power when you’re out and about taking photographs or shooting videos. Spare batteries are also useful for reducing the amount of time you spend waiting for your camera to charge.
Camera memory cards are a great way to maximise the capacity of your device, so that you can capture more memories without worrying about running out of space.
A camera case will protect your camera against bumps, knocks and scratches. In addition to keeping your device safe, many cases come with multiple compartments, so you can store your photography kit in one place.
