The Accessories That Matter
Tripods, filters and other handy extras for enhancing your photography
If you have more than just a camera and lens, you’ll need some way of carrying it all into the field with you. The traditional method is the time-tested camera bag. For field use, you’ll want a rugged bag, either weatherproof or with a weatherproof cover. Bags come in various sizes, so consider getting two—one to hold the stuff you usually take and the other for the rest.
To hold your camera securely while you’re climbing rough terrain, holsters such as the Camera Holster (www.cameraholster.com), Cotton Carrier (www.cottoncarrier.com) and HoldSLR (www.holdslr.com) are very handy. Individual lens pouches such as the Slingers from Adorama (www.adorama.com) are practical for carrying and protecting lenses.
