Five gadgets every travel photographer should consider

If you want to capture the world effectively, this practical gear will help

01 – LowePro Pro Roller X200 AW

For professional photographers needed to carry two DSLRs and as many as 8 lenses, this roller luggage is modular – and then some. However, it’s size means it’s only going to work if you have a vehicle, and can store in the trunk.

02 – Black Diamond Spot Headlamp 200LM

A headlamp keeps you hands-free if you’re taking photos at night, but it also helps you extract yourself from remote places after a dusk shoot, or before a sunrise session. The brightness of this one goes up to 200-lumens, while a red mode will help you keep your night vision.

03 – Manfrotto 290 Xtra MK290XTA3-3W tripod

Is this the best tripod going? They don’t get more sturdy nor flexible than the aluminium 290 Xtra, which reaches a height of 171.5 cm, so more than enough for most of us to get eyes-on with the world’s landscapes without having to kneel on the ground.

04 – Focus Universal Hot Shoe Spirit Level

Wobbly horizons? It happens – especially at night or at sunrise – but not if you have this Nikon and Canon DSLR-compatible spirit level.

05 – Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3

Time-lapse sequences are on-trend in travel photography, but you need to automate them. This intervalometer from Canon is better than most, but you can get much cheaper.
