Facebook Live Video: 3 Overlooked Camera Accessories

I’ve caught the Facebook Live Stream bug and have been casting short segments from my home office in Portland. It’s such a fun way to chat about short form topics and the engagement has been great. However, not everyone can make it live and not everyone spends time on Facebook, so I’m going to embed these videos on the blog going forward. In this video, I chat about three super important camera accessories that may get overlooked by lots of people. I’ll leave links to the individual products below the video. Enjoy!

    Always a good idea to remember the little extras that go beyond a camera body and lenses. I use similar items you listed but also like to have a high quality UV filter on each lens, usually Hoya or B+W. I know some photographers shun a protection filter but I’ve saved a few lenses from getting scratched by using them. I also found some aftermarket chargers for the camera batteries that are AC or DC which helps if you are out and about and not able to plug into a household outlet.

      Yessssss to the aftermarket chargers, Chris! I have this random charger that supports two Sony batteries at once. That’s so clutch when I’m on the road (and good call on AC/DC charging).

      Re: UV filters – I’ve sworn off of them. I certainly appreciate their protective qualities but I use ND and CPL filters so often that two things happen: 1. I get added light bounce when using a UV filter and 2. my filters sit that much further off the front of my lens, which adds more vignetting, especially with wide angle lenses.
