I like camera and photography-inspired knick-knacks (even when they’re a little cringeworthy). If you like them as well, you can now pimp your coat, camera strap, or even your ears with a cute little accessory. Funleader is selling a $39 sterling silver brooch that can tell everyone you’re a photographer without you going through your phone and showing off your work to total strangers at a party.
How many times have you been attaching a tripod plate and realised that you need to scrabble around and find a coin to screw it up tight enough? For me, too many times.
But now this Camera Multi-tool from Kikkerland Design could be just the very thing you’ve been missing in your kit bag. It even has the Sunny 16 rule etched into it for those of us that don’t want to commit it to memory.
Oh boy, everyone’s favorite topic, accessories for your Fujifilm camera! This can get wild…
Now, obviously, I can’t mention every single accessory that’s compatible with Fujifilm cameras.
Like the first two parts in this series, I’m going to try to keep this at more of a practical level, determining how to set up your Fujifilm kit with the essentials, rather than tell you which specific products to buy (though I will certainly make recommendations).
So let’s get to it.
The Noctilock comes from Walter Leica, a fairly prolific creator of Leica accessories. Typically, those accessories are to help the usability and safety of Leica cameras & lenses to improve the photographer’s overall shooting experience. Accessories like corrective eyepieces, high contrast lenses, straps, cases and memory card holders.
But he does occasionally dip out a little into Leica inspired fashion accessories and art pieces. His latest creation is, as you might’ve guessed, the Noctilock. It’s a hand made solid brass padlock designed to resemble a Leica camera.
All photographers have their favorite accessories they couldn’t imagine their lives without. In this video, Steve Perry suggests eight of those accessories that could make your life much easier if you’re a nature photographer and often use big lenses. Most of them are pretty affordable, and some are even DIY, so you won’t spend a fortune on them, yet you could really find them handy.
There seems to be many beginners in photography, who enthusiastically buy a mirrorless or DSLR-camera, use it intensively for two weeks, and then never touch it again. Yet some people manage to truly make photography into a passion from the very start, and they go on to enjoy it for years and years.
I believe a core deciding factor for which of these you become, is how good your experience is during the first few weeks with the camera. Furthermore, I believe that the experience is often decided by what kind of accessories you have. In this article I am listing six accessories I believe should be among the first you purchase. Most of them are cheaper than you might expect, especially if you are brave enough to purchase third-party versions.
Well, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the DJI Mavic Air accessories started to appear, especially if PolarPro have anything to do with it. PolarPro has now released the new DJI Mavic Air versions of their cinema filter series. These include neutral density and polarising filters to help provide more control over shutter speed, glare and saturation. They’ve also announced a couple of new cases, as well as a DJI Mavic Air version of their popular Katana system.
Do you personalize your camera? A custom-made strap, a sticker, or a soft shutter release button? Well, in case you want to give your Leica M a personal touch and add some bling, Bashert Jewelry has announced quite a fancy set of soft shutter release buttons. They are made of sterling silver, and they’ll make your Leica M personalized, shiny and classy. And yes, even more expensive.
