Shopping for Lens Calibration Tools, Camera Repair Tools, and Other Photo Studio Equipment
Choosing the right photo accessories will take your photography projects to the next level. Different accessories and upgrades provide a range of functions and benefits. Use lens protectors to protect your camera lenses, lens calibration tools to keep your autofocus accurate, or mounting plates to attach your camera to tripods and supports.
Protecting Your Camera Equipment
Photography is an inherently expensive hobby or profession. It's important to protect your valuable equipment. Lens protectors help you keep your camera lenses free from dust and scratches. UV filters provide adequate protection while also reducing the bluish haze of UV light. Lens hoods reduce glare from peripheral light sources and help protect your lens from debris and wear and tear.
Choosing the Right Camera Mounting Plates
You'll need a mounting plate if you want to connect your camera to a tripod, a cage, a monopod, or other supports. Quick release plates are ideal because you can remove your camera promptly and easily. They're also sturdy, so your camera won't rotate freely. Because of this, plates are more effective than merely screwing your camera straight into a tripod with the screw thread. Camera plates feature universal thread mounts, safety locks, and many other features.
What Are Lens Calibration Tools?
Lens calibration tools help correct inaccuracies in your camera's autofocus system. Long lenses and wide apertures benefit from calibration each time you mount them to the camera bodies. Calibration tools also help correct front/back focusing problems. Some calibration tools are ideal for DSLR cameras with autofocus micro adjustments. Keep your camera lens focus in line with your camera on each shoot. Often, you won't need any special tools, such as screwdrivers, to assemble these photography tools.
