Are you falling more and more in love with your camera? Well, I am and when you are in love…you like to buy that love presents, right? So I have been getting some really awesome goodies for my camera (umm…me, LOL)! I have found 15 basic camera accessories for beginners (that will make your photos rock).
My favorite camera is the Mirrorless Sony DLSR A6000. Yes, that is a mouthful. HA! It is just a great camera and it even works for novice photographers. The fun part is all those awesome accessories. I mean what girl doesn’t want to accessorize??
15 Basic Camera Accessories for Beginners
- Extra Batteries: I get sidetracked easily with little ones running around. I need to have extra batteries for my camera so I don’t miss any of their cuteness. I couldn’t make it without extra batteries. Essential for any camera owner.
- Battery Charger: I freak out when I grab my camera to get the perfect shot and realize the battery is dead. NO…you can’t recreate the perfect shot. So I try to never let that happen. I got a battery charger to keep my extra batteries charged and ready to rock at a moment’s notice.
- AC Adapter: Sometimes I am doing blog work extensively and I am working near an outlet. This AC adapter lets me just plug my camera in while I work. It saves some battery life and keeps me powered up and strong.
- Memory Cards: Memory cards can actually help maximize the performance of the camera. This was a great investment for me and helps keep my camera running fast.
- SD Memory Card Case: Have you seen the tiny SD memory cards? Did I mention TINY? I can lose these in a split second or my toddler can try to eat it. 🙂 I like to keep mine nice and secure in a memory card case.
- Memory Card Reader: The memory card full of superb photos doesn’t do any good if you can’t read it? DUH. So I love having a really fast memory card reader.
- Camera Straps: Multitasking can sometimes cause me to drop things. I have almost dropped my camera when I was trying to do too much at once. I finally realized I needed a good camera strap to keep my love safe. You can’t be too careful with a baby…I mean camera! 🙂
- Camera Bag: I take my camera all over the place. Parks, play dates, vacations are just a few. I want my camera to be safe and secure in the vehicle on the road. The camera bag is also where I store my camera at home so I always know where it is.
- Screen Protector: If I was the only one who ever got my hands on my camera I may not need a screen protector. Sometimes little hands are quick and they get my camera. I have also been known to knock it around a little bit. The screen protector keeps that LCD screen free from scratches.
- Mini Tripod: A mini tripod is so versatile and I use it a lot at home. It is really, really lightweight and easy to use.
- Travel Tripod: I do love to shot outdoors especially when we travel. Sometimes I want to use a nice tripod to take the strain off my back. This one fits the bill perfectly.
- Sensor Cleaning Tools: Occasionally I need to clean my camera sensor. I did my research and found out that canned air is a big no-no for sensor cleaning. Instead I use the Giottos Rocket Blaster to clean my sensor. It works great for getting that fine, almost invisible dust off the sensor.
- Microfiber Cleaning Cloths: A microfiber cleaning cloth is perfect for cleaning the lense of my camera. I want to use something that won’t leave microscopic scratches and these don’t.
- Replacement Eye Cup: I am not sure why, but I have trouble with the eye cup popping off. It just happens and I like to keep a backup in my camera bag in case I lose it completely.
- Wireless Remote: Occasionally I will try my hand at shooting a family photo that I am actually in. A wireless remote allows me to snap the shot while my camera is set up on the tripod and I am posing with my family!
These 15 basic camera accessories for beginners will be a great addition for any DSLR camera. I am a little bias about my Mirrorless Sony DLSR A6000 but I am sure your camera is great too! 🙂 Tell me a little bit about your favorite camera. Are you in LOVE too?
