Except for the new flagship Olympus OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mirrorless Camera, there haven’t been a lot of big camera announcements thus far in 2022, so we thought for this episode of the B&H Photography Podcast we’d start an introductory conversation about photo accessories and the wide range of tools and toys available to improve your photography or just make it easier.
Along with our guest, B&H Explora writer and photographer Todd Vorenkamp, we made an outline of the most important accessory categories, and we speak about the photo disciplines for which each are used and what is important to understand when purchasing these items for your specific photography practice. We discuss tripods and camera support, straps, bags, and gear protection, lens filters, lens adapters, remote controls, and more. Because this conversation is primarily concerned with outdoor and natural light photography, we don’t get much into accessories for the studio, but we do touch on flash photography and light modifiers.
Thanks to the insights of Vorenkamp and our host, Allan Weitz, we also learn ways to avoid unnecessary or inferior accessories and even little hacks to make your accessories perform better. Join us for this informative episode.
