Cameras Bags

Whatever you’re using, a camera bag that offers protection for your camera and accessories is essential. It is likely to be the most important accessory you buy for your camera, offering protection against scratches and dust as well as storage.

There are several things to consider when buying the right bag for you:

Tripods are just the thing for when you want to get more creative with your photography, providing you with more control.

When using a slow shutter speed to capture creative images such as light trails or gently flowing water, even slight camera shake will cause blurry photographs – using a tripod will ensure you don’t have any unwanted shaking effects.

If you’re using a bridge camera or digital SLR with a long zoom lens to photograph wildlife or sports, the further you zoom in, the more camera shake is noticeable. A tripod keeps the camera correctly balanced for sharper images. Tripods are vital for taking properly level, beautifully composed landscape and architectural photos.

There are also tripods geared for action camcorders which are small, flexible and include a variety of clamps so you can attach your camera to anything for a great shot. Some tripods are made small enough to slip into a backpack side pocket.

Choose a compact, lightweight tripod if you’re going to be travelling longer distances on foot, or a longer, stronger model for specific location shoots such as portraiture and architectural interiors.

Memory Cards

Getting the right memory card is important for ensuring you get the most out of your camera. To fully benefit from a camera’s high frame rate, choose a high performance memory card to prevent camera slowdown between shots.

When filming HD movies, the files use up a lot of memory, so pick a large-capacity memory card to make sure you can save all the footage comfortably.

Memory cards are spilt into three main types, SD, microSD and Compact Flash. Make sure you have enough memory cards with you when you head out to take photos.

Lens Filters

Filters are a simple but effective way to add a new dimension to your photographs. They help to improve factors such as colour, contrast, glare and reflections so that your images look purer and more accurate. You’ll be able to attain better control over outdoor shots and remove many aberrations that can spoil your photographs.

UV Filters: Having a UV filter on your camera lens will protect it like a lens cap does, and keeps you ready to take a photo as soon as your pick up the camera. UV filters help to cut out ultraviolet light and reduce unwanted atmospheric haze in your images.

Polarising Filters: Polarising filters help to increase image saturation, making blue skies darker and more vibrant with greater contrast, and reducing glare and reflections in water and glass.
