If you’re a blogger, then taking photos becomes something you need to get used to doing. Now I am no professional photographer, however, it is something I have always enjoyed as it has been a hobby of my Dad’s and I used to love having a go with his “big camera” when I was young. While as I’ve got older blogging has allowed me to at least get a little better, when it comes to using a camera.
When it comes to accessories for your camera there is a whole world of things you can buy and if you’re looking to buy for a blogger who like to play with their camera, or someone who is a little more advanced, then here are some ideas from Calumet.
Calumet 7100 Tripod with Three-way Quick Release Head
As I sit here writing this I realise I forgot to put the tripod together properly for the photos. I have Christmas brain. Bar my inability to put together a tripod for a photo, they are perhaps one of my favourite tools to have when it comes to taking blog photos.
This is in part because I suffer with very bad shakes and trying to take some photos without a tripod to hold my camera still, ends up with just a blurry mess.
The Calumet 7100 Tripod is really easy to assemble and is adjustable to a height of 57.75″ and has a three way pan/tilt head. I’ve found that no matter what I am doing this tripod has felt sturdy and secure and the tilting head has allowed me to get some really interesting angles on photographs.
Made for travelling and usable with a digital or 35mm SLR camera this tripod comes in at £55.
Calumet Small Tripod Bag
Every good tripod of course needs a good carry case, especially when it so good for taking out and about with you. This Calumet Small Tripod Bag, is just the ticket for carrying the Calumet 7100 Tripod and includes a large padded space for the tripod and a smaller pocket to the front, while carrying this case is easy thanks to shoulder and hand straps.
What’s more it costs just £19.
Calumet Medium Protective Wrap Plus 14 x 14″
I have to admit I’ve not come across these protective wraps before, but they are such a great idea. They can be used as extra padding for anything that is fragile. For instance I have wrapped up an extra lens in this one, just to keep it that little bit more safe.
If you think this case might be just the ticket, to keep some precious photography items safe, then you may be thrilled to know it comes in at just £17 and can be brought in different sizes.
Calumet Optical Glass Cleaning Kit
Made using a three-step liquid polymer-based formula, this kit lifts and dissolves surface contaminates and fingerprints and gives long lasting anti-static protection. What’s more, it isn’t just useful for cameras, oh no this little kit can be used on LCD screen, computer monitors, DVDs and CDs to name just a few things.
This useful set costs £12 and fits neatly into the pocket of the tripod case for safe keeping.
So there you have a few idea from the Christmas selection at Calumet, what do you think of them, is there anything you would like to find under your tree come Sunday?
