Top Camera Accessories Photography Newbies Should Have

camera lense camera accessoriesCamera accessories are not always a necessity but they can enhance your photography experience and add to the functionality of the device. Here are the top camera accessories every photography newbie should have:

Memory cards
If you’re using a digital camera, it probably already carries a built-in memory. Although that would suffice, as your photography hobby grows, so will your need to take more pictures or shoot more video footages. Built-in camera memory can only do so much. Find a card with a high capacity or buy two that has medium-capacity for emergencies.

Optical zoom lens
The basic function of the zoom lens is to get you closer to your subject. So for those very personal shots up close, get yourself some additional lens to capture far-off objects.

A tripod may seem like a very trivial choice but it will come in handy if you want to work independently, shoot a steady picture or even take photos of yourself. A tripod is bulky but it will prevent a shaky camera shot.

Camera bag
A durable if not the best camera bag not only holds your camera, it also protects it from dirt, dust, heat and moisture. And it will also hold other accessories as well.

With a photo printer, there’s no need to download your photo or video files onto a computer for printing. Feed your memory card onto the printer, make a few changes and start printing.

Editing software
Do you always take less-than-perfect photos and videos? An editing software will fix all that and make you look like a pro. This is an excellent camera accessory to get because it lets you modify your photos and just have fun.

  • I do agree that photographer needs to bring along camera and memory cards especially if your going to get bunch of photos and you will surely need it so you can get tons of it and will have no problems of deleting other photos just to accommodate some photos right?. I haven’t tried memory printing since I am always using computer to print out some photos. Anyway can you recommend some brand of printer which allows it?.

    I am looking into upgrading my photo equipment, so your post comes handy. As for printing, I really prefer to keep my pictures on memory card and go to one of those printing kiosk which have appeared everywhere in the last few years. At about $0.15 a photo, it’s cheaper than most printer by quite a lot and the quality is great. If I need more space, I burn the pictures to a DVD or drop them on the laptop which I travel with.

    I use photoshop often to rotate the pictures and do slight adjustments. I need to adjust brightness and contrast once in a while as well. That’s what happen when your camera isn’t quite good enough. Can’t wait to upgrade.

  • I’m too am using Photoshop for adjustments but i need to adjust over 100 images? Does anyone know if there is some sort of ‘batch’ photo editor out there?
