5. Padded neck strap for your DSLR

A good quality padded neck strap will release the pain you feel in the neck after carrying all they long that DSLR. Even if we are speaking of light weights, if you carry it long enough you will fill the extra weight. As a consequence you will fill the pain in the neck. After all even a light weight DSLR weighs arround 1 kilo or 2.2 pounds. This certainly depends on the gear you are using. For full frame cameras with super telephoto lenses attached this weight can greatly increase. Am I right or am I right :P? This is why a good padded neck strap can help you transfer the weight across the body. If you don’t believe me try it by your own.

This little blower is powerful enough to make its job done. It will remove most of the dust particles that get stuck on your image sensor.

It will eliminate the need to go to a specialized shop to clean your lens. Although this is advised to be done, if you don’t know what to do exactly you can easily damage your camera’s sensor. After all this is not a cheap repair. Therefor I suggest to use this blower instead. But if you really need to clean the sensor leave it in the hands of professionals.
