What’s in your camera bag?

Featured Hot Products New Arrivals

If you are a new owner of a Backpacker BBK-3 Canvas Camera Bag,what will you have in it? A camera (hopefully) and maybe a lens or two, but that’s probably not everything that you need. Here are some things that should always deserve a place in it.

Mini tripod

Carrying a full-size tripod around isn’t always practical unless you know you’re definitely going to use it. But there’s nothing worse than being caught out without a camera support when you end up really needing one. Mini tripods are small and lightweight. While not as versatile as a full-size model, a mini tripod opens up a lot of possibilities, especially when it comes to low-light photography. With your camera on the tripod, resting on a wall, tree branch or even the ground, you can use slow shutter speeds without fear of shake.

Spare battery / Memory cards

Hopefully this is obvious, but if you run out of space on your memory card, or your camera’s battery runs flat, you may as well pack up your gear and go home. In order to avoid nasty surprises we recommend always carrying a couple of spare memory cards and at least one extra charged-up battery. If your camera runs on (or can be adapted to use) AA batteries, it’s a good idea to have a few lithium ones tucked away in your bag somewhere. They’re light, powerful, and don’t discharge over time.

Rain cover / Poncho

If the weather in your part of the world is anything like the weather in Seattle, you’ll need to make sure that you and your gear are protected against the elements. Cheap folding ponchos can be found in most pharmacies and gas stations for unexpected downpours, and (with a bit of adjustment) will protect both photographer and equipment, but dedicated rain covers for cameras and lenses are also available from several manufacturers.


A flash that can be attached to the hot shoe of a camera or used off camera are great for adding additional light to your subject. If you haven’t tried using them before, it will add a whole new dimension to your photography.

Circular polarizer

Some people think that when shooting digitally you don’t need to use filters, but that’s not true. While there’s perhaps not much point using old-style warm-up and cooling filters anymore, polarizing filters remain indispensable if you’re capturing landscapes. Polarizing filters make the colors in blue skies and foliage more intense, increase contrast in clouds and reduce reflections on water and glass. Good-quality polarizers aren’t cheap, and you might only use one a handful of times every year, but having one tucked away in your camera bag ensures that when you really need it, it’s right there.
