25 Essential DSLR Camera Accessories

Anyone who has ever bought a DSLR camera knows the challenges and the enormous array of accessories available to upgrade their new contraption. While experienced photographers know how to tread these waters, if you are new to the game, they’re treacherous. From lenses to filters, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the choices. For this very reason, here are 25 Essential DSLR Camera Accessories that you will undoubtedly find yourself needing at one point or another.

Although shooting RAW and adjusting your white balance later is a possibility, what if you want to shoot JPEG? Besides, if you are trying to get everything perfect right from the get-go, you need some kind of grey card to check the white balance.


Mini Softbox for Speedlight

Everyone into digital photography knows the benefits of diffused light. It gives your models a more pleasing look and eliminates harsh shadows. The problem is that a huge softbox can be a pain to lug around. So how about a mini softbox?

Nobody wants spots on their photos. If it happens though, you want to have a blower handy. This method of cleaning your camera is highly preferable to anything requiring you to touch the lens.


Light Reflector

In situations where you can’t use a flash, like outdoors on a sunny day or portraits, having a set of light reflectors can be very beneficial.


Lens Pen

If your blower is still not getting the dust off your lens, don’t panic. The lens pen should do the trick. It has two sides, one with a brush to the clean the dust off your lens and the other with a cleaning tip for everything else.
