With buying a DSLR camera, it's always worth thinking about the equipment. Professionals will probably buy every addition that exists in the market, while beginners need to think how to choose equipment that will serve their needs and wont empty their pockets. We'll start with the most important accessories, and end up with equipment that might seem less important, but which no any serious photographer can't live without.
1. Spare lens
Since there are a multitude of lenses with different focal lengths, apertures, zoom capabilities and combinations of the above mentioned, focus only on those that will best serve your needs. You'll make it the cheapest. Solid lens can be found at a price of $450, but these lenses are mostly withsmall focal length, or large aperture. The most expensive on the market are telephoto lenses with focal lengths goes up to 800 mm, which cost more than $15.000. However, if you are buying a new lens (despite of type) which is too big burden on your pocket, high-quality second-hand lenses can be found on e-Bay or via photography forums.
Which one of these items you will take depends on whether you want to be more involved in photography or video recording. Photographers can find the flash for $11, but we still recommend something more expensive than, say, $150, for several reasons. The strength of the flash will help to highlight the farthest and darkest objects in the scene. Variable direction of the head will help you not to burn objects that are the closest to the camera, and yet will provide enough light for a quality picture. If you already do not want to take the original flashes, consider Metz or Sunpak, which are adapted to Canon or Nikon cameras, and they are also cheaper.
Light is important to those who will record videos. It is mounted in place of flash, but consumes far more electricity (thankfully, some have separate batteries). Of course, the lighting is much stronger, so you need to adjust the volume and direction. Prices of these additives range from $150 to $600.
3. Additional memory cards and batteries
Without these additions do not plan your sesion longer than an hour. Not only that the battery will be "in the red" after that peroid (especially if you opt for continuous burst), but it will dry up the memory with a growing number of photos. Today's cameras can shoot images up to 4K resolution, which is great if you want an extremely clear and sharp picture. However, such large resolutions are murderers of memory, because their encoding requires increasing storage space.
Prices of spare batteries are approximately between $75 and $175, and additional memory cards (much better option than an external drive) cost $45-75, depending on the memory storage. When buying a battery, it's important to pay attention to the input voltage and amperage, because the inadequate values will burn out the battery or even the entire camera. It's also necessary to pay attention to the type of memory card that your camera supports, as well as the value of the maximum expandable memory (eg. 32 MB).
Stands are important to those who will be using their DSLR camera to shoot videos, and take pictures of, for example, panoramas. Although they can sometimes be cumbersome, especially in tight spaces, it is useful to have themat each longer session. It is possible to get a mini-stands up to 60 cm (2 ft) in height, monopods and tripods. We recommend the purchase of a tripod because, if necessary, it can and beassembled and do not need an extra hand for balancing the entire apparatus, like on a monopod. Prices range from $75-150, but be sure that tripods have adequate removable head, that can move the camera in length and height well.
Did you really think to carry all the equipment in a pouch or an ordinary bag? Don't leave your home without special bags for photo equipment. It is not foreseen that the equipment withstand even the slightest kick, and because of the sensitive optics and moving parts, you could more often attend the photo equipment shops. The advantage of special backpacks and bags is that they have special pockets for each part of the photo hardware that is protected with memory foam or sponge of different thickness and hardness. In our stores, these accessories can be found at prices from $35-$380, which is certainly cheaper than purchasing replacement for the part that you have destroyed.
