10 Essential Accessories — and Great Gift Ideas — for Photographers

If you’re pondering a gift for the photographer in your life or, more likely, you’re a photographer trying to give a loved one some last-minute ideas on what to get you for Christmas, look no further.

Photographer Allison Anderson has compiled her list of ten must-have photography accessories and, as lists go, it’s a good one, especially as there’s something there to suit pretty much every budget. For example, the inventively-named SmallRig AAK2371 Explorer Folding Screwdriver Kit is just $27.49 and comes with various hex keys, a Philips head and a flathead screwdriver.

If you’re in the market for a strap, Anderson is right about the Peak Design anchor system but you might want to check out the new offerings from WANDRD. I’m in the middle of writing a review of their three new straps — neck/shoulder/, wrist, and lanyard. The means of attaching the various straps is innovative and while it’s not quite as quick-release as the Peak Design system, it does mean that you don’t leave anything flapping around on every single camera that you own.

What would you add to this list? Let us know your ideas in the comments below.
