Episode 30 – Must Have Accessories
For Episode 30 we discussed photography accessories in our camera bags that we absolutely cannot live without. Having a camera and a nice lineup of lenses is just beginning. Various tools and accessories become essential to our photography at Disney parks!
Here is a list of the accessories discussed:
- The Lens Pen
A handy cleaning tool for quickly removing dust and smudges from the front lens element. Tom, recommends the use of his shirt but you will have to ask him if you can purchase one for your kit, otherwise we recommend the Lens Pen!
- Neutral Density Filters
We discuss the different ND filters we use. An ND is especially useful for fireworks photography at the parks!
- Camera Strap
A good camera strap is a must. Long days at the parks call for something comfortable around your neck. A very popular lineup of straps is the Black Rapid sling strap series.
- Bubble Leveler
One handy tool that is essential for leveling a shot on a tripod is a bubble level. Some of the newest cameras have an internal digital leveler but if your camera does not have that feature, we recommend a bubble leveler that attaches to your camera’s hot shoe.
- Remote Shutter Release
We discuss the use of remote shutter releases, both wireless IR remotes and wired. We discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
- Battery Grip
A battery grip not only helps extend your camera’s battery life, it also helps with a more comfortable grip when shooting vertically.
