Uncovering the Hidden Gems: 7 Must-Have Camera Accessories You Didn’t Know Existed

Great camera accessories are absolutely invaluable, but if they aren’t made by big companies or have big marketing budgets, sometimes we miss the best ones. So in this video, I’m gonna show you some of my current favorite camera accessories that you probably haven’t heard of. I’ll also make sure to mention any drawbacks or flaws that I’ve come across in the accessories, because let’s be honest, there’s no such thing as a totally perfect product. And if you think you do know a perfect product, leave a comment below, let me know. Without further ado, let’s accessorize. Now, a quick disclaimer, this is not necessarily a list of budget-friendly options. Some of them are a little on the pricey side. So, for each accessory that I can, I’ll try to give a budget-friendly option and leave links for everything down in the description.

Nitecore BlowerBaby

The first accessory on the list Is the Nitecore BlowerBaby. This is an electronic replacement for the classic Rocket Blower that a lot of people already have in their camera kit. It’s pretty simple. You push a button, and it blows air so that you can clean your sensor, or your lenses, or your keyboard, or whatever you want. It’s got a filter on it that’s replaceable, so you can be confident that it’s blowing nice, clean air onto whatever you’re cleaning with it. But here’s the catch, for a classic Rocket Blower, you’re looking at like 15 to $20. For a fancier one with a filter, you’re looking at maybe 35 or so. With the BlowerBaby, you’re looking at about $80. There are two reasons why I still decided to buy this, and I don’t regret my choice at all. Firstly, I find this so much easier to fit into my bag, or a cleaning kit to take with me. The Rocket Blower always felt like it was a weird size and shape to bring along, whereas this is slim and easy to fit in my bag. The second reason is because with the traditional Rocket Blower, in order to get enough airflow to do something like clean my sensor, I have to squeeze really hard, which makes me move around a lot, and there’s always a chance that I’ll slip and smack my sensor with it. With the BlowerBaby, my hand is completely still while I’m using it, and the output they claim is twice that of a Rocket Blower, So it should actually do a better job as well. So it seemed like an expensive choice at first, but I definitely haven’t regretted it at all. And for the cheaper option of this accessory, you’re looking at a Rocket Blower. One positive is that you don’t have to charge them. You just need to have enough coffee in your system to get the job done.

Nitecore USB C Rechargeable Batteries

Sticking with the same brand, Nitecore, we have the Nitecore USB C rechargeable batteries. There are two very cool parts of these batteries. First, they’re USB C rechargeable. There’s a port on them where you can plug in directly so that you don’t need a separate charger at all. There’s even a little button on the battery so that you can press and see the current battery charge level. This is absolutely fantastic for traveling because you can leave the Sony charger or multi battery charger that you might have at home, at home. The other great thing about these batteries is that they’re only $60 as compared to the $80 Sony brand name version. Compatibility seems to be great with all my Sony cameras, and I haven’t even been getting the annoying “cannot guarantee the safety of this battery” pop up that you get with some third party batteries. As it currently stands, while I’m making this video, I believe they’re just offering The Sony Z100 style batteries in this style, but they have a ton of other accessories including batteries and chargers for other cameras too. So, I get the feeling like they’ll probably take this idea and adopt it to more options soon. As far as a budget-friendly option for the Z100 batteries, You’re looking at something without the USB C, or the level indicator. I’ve left the cheap third party battery in the description.

Bronine Multi-Camera Battery Charger

Continuing on the theme of batteries and charging, we’ve got the Bronine Multi-Camera battery charger. This is a modular system that allows you to charge up to two or four different batteries at the same time depending on which one you get, and they have a huge assortment of different brands to choose from like Sony, Cannon, Nikon, Fuji Film, Olympus, Panasonic, DJI Drones, and even cylindrical lithium batteries. The way that it works is that there’s a main hub with magnetic connectors, and then you get the different modular charging units that you need for your gear. So for me, this allows me to charge four Sony batteries at the same time. And it’s so much faster than the charger That comes with the camera itself, or charging by plugging in the camera via USB C. The main hub plugs in via USB C, and you can get it with their own 65 Watt plugin if you want or if you already have one around, you can use that. On top of the main module, You’ve got these little screens too so you can see that your battery is charging or when it’s done. All of my little Sony Z100 connectors also magnetize to each other. So, if I’m not using them, they store away nicely. They’ve also got optional extension cables For when you might be using a charger that needs extra width like a Sony NPF style battery. The main hub is $48 for the two port option, and $78 for the four port option. And then it’s about nine to $12 each for the charging modules. So a full kit of four will be somewhere just over $100. The only real downside to this that I found is that it’s a little bit bigger than some of the other options out there for like dual chargers for specific batteries. But in my opinion, you kind of make up for that With the fact that you could charge all sorts of different types of batteries with this one charger.

Falcam F38 Quick Release System

Okay, let’s get away from batteries for a second. The next accessory on my list is actually a whole system. It’s the Falcam F38 Quick Release System. In a video a little while ago, I talked about the peak design Capture Clip Quick Release System and how much I love it. They even came up with a little hack on how I could use it at the end of a next strap. Well, this quick release system is very similar to that one, but it takes it a couple of steps further. The basic bundle comes with a base and a plate. The base can screw straight onto anything with a quarter inch or three eighths inch thread. And then the plate itself attaches To your camera or accessory, and it snaps into the base and is locked there until you press the release button on the side. Just like the peak design version, the release button can also turn to lock it so you don’t accidentally release it. The plate is also Arca-Swiss compatible. So you can use this with any tripod that has an Arca-Swiss head already, but so is the base. So rather than screwing this base onto a quarter inch thread, you can actually attach it to your tripod already via Arca-Swiss, and convert your current tripod system into a quick release system. But this system is also great for things like the little tripod feet that come with your gimbal. I put the base on the feet and the plate on the bottom of the gimbal so now I can quickly attach and detach, as well as I can put my gimbal On an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod too, regardless of whether or not it has the Falcam system. On top of this basic kit, they…
