Camera Geek Stuff: Filters, Hood & Tripod

Wednesday, 5th June, 2013


I am turning into more of a camera geek :p Today I got a tripod, lens hood and some filters πŸ˜€

I have had a Gorillapod for ages, which are great but lots of the time I cannot get the camera positioned exactly straight and level, and you also need to place it on something since it’s tiny which is not always ideal. So, I bought this tripod, it was only Β£12 and it seems pretty good! It’s light but feels quite sturdy, has a spirit level and extends to a good height.

I wondered about filters so I bought these Polaroid ones. You get 4 in the pack; UV, Polarized, Fluorescent and Warm filters, to give your photos the best colour for the best situation. The UV one also acts as a protector for your lens, to keep dust or dirt off and help it not get scratched etc.

I am sick of the light hitting my pics and them getting messed up, especially when I take pics of clothes for my blog in a room and the sunlight hits them, I am hoping this hood will help that, or maybe I need to do something about the light in the room. Still, it will be useful for taking outdoor pics when it’s really sunny (not often lol).
