Supportive Tools for Photographers

No matter what kind of camera you take, in addition to your camera and lens, your pocket should have the following items.

Mini tripod

It’s always a good idea to carry a tripod all the time because it’s too cumbersome and heavy unless you know exactly what your aim will be. However, a tripod is also necessary in unexpected situations that require slow shutter speeds. Therefore, you should have a mini tripod ready to take anywhere. This product is compact, convenient and reasonably priced.

Wireless remote control

Although most cameras have built-in self-timer, the mode has many limitations. Therefore, it will be more convenient for you to bring a capture control to be fully active in conditions of image stabilization. Previous controls are usually wired, so it is quite limited in terms of distance. However, modern cameras now support wireless control. This tool enables photographers to take a selfie or hide in a hidden place and tap the remote, especially for wild photographers.

Rain cover camera

If you go for a picnic in areas or sudden rain or you intend to shoot when it rains, it is very important to bring a rain cover for the camera. If you want to use quality products, you can use waterproof bags from reputable brands. Otherwise you just need to carry a plastic bag to cover the whole camera. You can even DIY a rain cover camera simply with nylon and elastic band.

Removable flash

When taking an outdoor photo, you may rarely use your light or camera that already has a toad. However, you should bring an external flash. In addition to shooting in low light conditions, external flash becomes very useful in case of need to balance the light even in the middle of the day. For modern cameras with a removable flash feature, an extra lamp can significantly improve portraits when straight light does not highlight the subject.
