Camera Bags and Tripods
Camera Protection - Camera BagsProtect your camera and equipment from dust, water, and shock with some type of camera bag. You may select from shoulder, hip pack, day pack, backpack, or rolling suitcase-style bags. These bags come in all sizes, from bags that carry one camera to bags outfitted for multiple cameras, lenses, and laptops. There are even bags with interchangeable straps! You have a choice of hard or soft cases, and many of them come with add-on pockets for other camera accessories. Choose a fabric that is strong and weatherproof, and make sure the bag has padding that will structurally support the photo equipment and provide adequate shock protection.
Size is largely determined by how much equipment you have and how far you need to carry it. Determine whether you will need to attach a tripod. For long treks, it may be easier to have a backpack. A suitcase-type bag may be easier to wheel through an airport, especially if you need a lot of equipment for a professional shoot. Bags that contain space for a PC make it easier to put everything in one place.
Camera Support - Camera TripodsTripods are used to support your camera. They are especially important when you need sharp photos with good composition. Slow shutter speeds used in low light conditions such as night photography require tripod use to hold the camera steady. Also, tripods can be used to take multiple pictures in the exact same location, to pan and zoom from the same point, or to keep the camera centered during panorama frame shoots.
Tripods are available in tabletop and mini tripod models, and as small compact tripods, lightweight tripods, and heavy tripod systems. Small tripods are used for compact cameras on a stable surface. Lightweight tripods work for cameras weighing less than 2.2 pounds. Heavy tripods provide more stability and better results for heavier cameras and their attached lenses.
Cameras may be screwed directly onto a tripod or onto a removable tripod head. A ball head on a tripod gives the most flexible adjustment and is easy to swivel. Tripods with 3-D heads tend to be more bulky than the other types, but they enable you to position a camera precisely.
