Top 10 Camera Accessories for Travel

Jetting off on an adventure soon? Before you put on your “out of office” message and board your plane or train, check your camera kit. Do you have everything you need to capture your upcoming trip? To make your travels easier, we recommend putting together a kit that’s portable, comfortable and efficient. Think chargers, cleaning kits, tripods, camera bags and the all-important memory cards.

The globetrotting team at Ted’s Cameras share their top 10 camera accessories for travel.

There’s nothing worse than your camera running out of juice in the middle of a shoot. Enter: the Hahnel Unipal Mini Universal Charger.
The charger is portable, lightweight, and easy to use - just tweak the adjustment wheels until your battery fits. It’s compatible with most camera batteries, and eliminates the need to carry multiple charging devices. Plus, it’s quick to charge. A three hour charge will leave you with 1000mAH.

To keep your camera equipment in tip-top condition while you’re travelling, pack the Hahnel 6-in-1 Travel Cleaning Kit.
Made up of a lenspen, blower, cleaning fluid, microfibre cloth, screen wipes and microfibre wipes, it’s ideal for both wet and dry cleaning. These items will help to remove fingerprints, dirt, dust and grime from your camera, as well as spotting scopes, screens and binoculars. The handy kit comes in a waterproof bag that can be easily attached to a backpack.

Designed for use with smartphones, the Joby Griptight Telepod Mobile is the ultimate multitasker. It’s a handgrip, monopod, mini tripod and elevating tripod rolled into one, and brilliant for content creators who work on the go. It features a ballhead to help you compose your photos, and the Bluetooth remote means you don’t need to physically hold your phone to snap a photo (or selfie!). The telepod securely holds most smartphones, and folds down to a travel-friendly 7.5 inches.

The Manfrotto Befree Advanced Travel Tripod is one of the best travel tripods on the market. With a generous 8kg payload, it’s sturdy enough to hold a mirrorless camera or advanced DSLR kit. It has a 150cm maximum height and closes down to a compact 40cm. The tripod features a versatile ballhead for quick composition adjustments, and Manfrotto’s twist-lock system makes it easy to adjust the tripod to the height you need.

Heading off on a hike or outdoor adventure?
The Vanguard Veo 2 AM204 Monopod is the perfect partner. It boasts a 4kg payload, which is unique for a monopod and strong enough to handle mirrorless cameras and DSLRs with large lenses attached. If you’re planning to shoot wildlife or sporting events, the lightweight monopod works well - and folds down to a compact 47cm. Thanks to its non-slip rubber foot and comfortable grip, you can also lean on it for support while you’re walking.

On your next trip, protect your new and much-loved gear with the Lowepro M-Trekker BP150 Backpack. It’s compact, portable and perfect for carrying your gear during those long days of walking and sightseeing. The stylish camera backpack stores mirrorless models, compact tripods, accessories and tablets up to 13 inches, and it’s made from robust, durable materials. It also has a weatherproof cover to shield your gear from the elements.

If you’re looking for a sling-style bag to store your DSLR, look no further than Crumpler’s The Flying Duck Camera Sling. Simple and chic, the bag doesn’t look out of place anywhere. It holds the essentials you need while travelling: a DSLR and up to two lenses. Made from durable ripstop nylon, it’s lightweight and has an adjustable shoulder strap, making it comfortable to carry as you’re exploring. A secure buckle closure and padded inserts stop your gear from moving around inside the bag.

Want to make your travel videos look more professional?
Invest in the best camera gimbal, the Moza Air Cross Gimbal Stabiliser. The 3-axis gimbal stabiliser will help you capture cinematic quality video with your DSLR or mirrorless camera. It supports a 1.8kg payload, and features an easy-to-use two button handgrip. To effortlessly emulate the work of experienced cinematographers, you can play around with the pre-programmed follow modes.

There are portable powerbanks, and then there’s the Korjo 4400mAH Powerbank - an ultra-portable device that fits in your pocket. The high capacity powerbank can be used to power up any digital device that’s charged via USB, like smartphones, tablets, GoPros, MP3 players and some digital cameras. It’s a lifesaver for travel, and its LED light charge indicators let you know when you can charge another device. Our advice? Charge your gear overnight so it’s ready for the next day of adventure!

As every photographer knows, you can never have too many spare memory cards! The Sandisk 64GB Extreme SDXC Memory Card has plenty of storage space, and it’s compatible with advanced compact cameras, mirrorless cameras, DSLRs and digital video cameras. The fast SD card will keep up your camera’s burst shooting rate and high-resolution video recording.
