Summer has officially begun! Any fun summer trips ahead?
How about a few fun and affordable things you can do to upgrade your equipment for your summer trips under $100 – you don’t have to overhaul it and buy a completely new X, Y, and Z, just see!
#1 Add Wi-Fi to your camera
Most new cameras, including a few DSLRs and mirrorless cameras (my buddy the Sony NEX included), have wi-fi enable features. But what if your camera doesn’t have that feature – including your $3500 Canon 5D Mark III body that really should have like, everything? No worries. No need to buy the latest camera or pay extra for those who had wi-fi envy. You can now make any camera, have wi-fi with a card!
Open up an App, enter the password and you can get a copy on your phone.
#2 Turn any bag into a camera bag
Ask for my opinion on camera/purse bags and I’ll just tell you they’re all ugly and to buy a Louis Vuitton and make it a camera bag – I would give you the same response in regards to diaper bags. I use the ONA Camera Insert to carry my Sony NEX and all four lenses in any bag.
#3 Take your own Selfies, but without your arm in the way
Selfies get so much of your head and no enough of the scenery. I know, that’s the purpose of a selfie, but maybe, just maybe you’re going somewhere cool and you want more of the scenery. You know when you give a stranger your camera and you get it back and you’re like, Oh great, a blind monkey could’ve done better?
Try this compact travel tripod, this one is coming with me to France next week.
Note, this is NOT for DSLRs, this would be for a point and shoot, something lightweight, even a mirrorless camera and you would need a remote release. Do not email me complaining if your DSLR goes tumbling down the hill on this – had to say it, you know there’s always one.
Happy vacay shooting!
