One of the most important things you bring back from traveling are the photos. Whether you are a professional photographer or you are doing photography as a hobby, these 7 gadgets are going to make your travel pictures stand out from all others.
We know what you are thinking – tripods are too big to carry around all the time. However, you’d be surprised to know how many compact tripods there are on the market. Plus, a tripod is a must when you want to take high-quality photos during your travel. When shopping for tripods look for the one that is at the same time strong and could hold a big camera, as well as light and compact so that you can carry it around with you.
Memory cards fill up pretty fast, especially when we are traveling and taking thousands of pictures every day. Therefore, you want to be able to transport all media from your memory cards onto a laptop. If your laptop is not compatible with your camera’s memory card, you are going to need a card reader. These are usually tiny, so you do not have to worry about the space.
If you like to take a lot of photos, chances are that you have more than one camera card. These are not only small but also very easy to break when you are not careful. Since you do not want all of your precious photos and videos of your trip to be forever lost, we suggest getting a card case that allows you to store all your camera cards in one, safe place and never worry about them again.
If you are still not sure about bringing a tripod with you, do not worry, there is Gorillapod. These serve as tripods, except you can attach them to many different things, such as tree branches. This allows you to take photos from very interesting places and from different angles. Gorillapod is also usually much lighter and smaller than a tripod, so it is worth looking into if you haven’t already.
This is probably the most important gadget you are going to need while traveling. Imagine if you brought all of these amazing gadgets with you, ready to take some breathtaking photos of beautiful scenery, only to realize that your battery is almost empty. This could easily be avoided if you have some sort of a portable charger with you at all times so that you can charge your camera whenever you want. This also applies to your phone as many of us love taking pictures just with our phones.
Neutral density filters
You never know what the weather is going to be like when you are taking photos, and every photographer knows that you cannot make great, professional-looking photos when the Sun is shining straight into your camera. Since you cannot control the weather, it might be a good idea to bring some camera filters with you, especially neutral density filters that can control overexposure. If you are interested in photography, you might want to check some other filters and different lenses on the market as well.
Shutter remote is a great tool to use if you like taking multiple photos and want to do so without touching your camera all the time. Time-lapse photography is another thing you will be able to explore with this handy gadget.
