As a digital photographer, I use various camera accessories but, the memory card is the most important item for me. Since the SD format has been adopted the world over, now every photographer like me wants to buy the cheapest and the biggest memory card. SD cards of different speeds are available. When the card is fast, one can write the data fast and also read back the data fast. The camera that supports the high speed card will have the minimum writing time only and will be ready for the next shooting very quickly.
Tripod – a vital accessory
As a professional photographer I need a lot of camera accessories to make my shots perfect in all aspects. I am using DSLR camera to ensure the best quality pictures. DSLR camera requires a lot of accessories in order to create the most perfect pictures. For successful shooting and perfect photography the photographer requires various accessories such as lenses, flashes, camera filters, batteries, tripod, monopod and camera bag. In my opinion tripod is very essential for perfect photography. While the photographer is relieved from the load on his shoulder the tripod holds the camera steady. Tripod enables the photographer to think carefully and then shoot. However, one should avoid low quality tripod even though it is cheap. There are tripod systems, the legs and heads of which can be bought separately. This enables the user to get the perfect combination and also one can have multiple head for different types of uses. The 460 MG three axis model tripod is excellent and quite flexible. The 701 HDV tripod with a fluid head is quite ideal for video. Those who need technical precision may opt for 410. The ball and socket type tripod head is the most popular model. When the camera is mounted on a ball, it can be easily pointed to any direction before locking it at a fixed point.
More about lenses
The lens is the most vital part of the camera. The technologically advanced cameras require different kinds of lenses. Those who have good knowledge about lenses are able to handle digital photography more efficiently. The minimum f-number or the maximum aperture diameter of a camera lens is known as the lens speed. For a fast lens the maximum aperture number is bigger. The fast lens ensures more light intensity to the focal plane. The lens that has higher focal length gives grater magnification. The lenses that are in the common range of 35 to 70mm are known as standard lenses. The standard lenses are normally used in documentary photography. These are situations in which the photographer can quickly move around and shoot any action that is interesting. There are three types of camera lenses – macro, zoom and special purpose. The macro lens is used when a picture of the same size or bigger than the subject is needed.
