Needed DSLR Accessories for Your Nikon or Canon DSLR Camera

If you recently bought a Nikon or Canon DSLR camera, so, you are interested in improving your photography skills to take great pictures.

Once you have a quality DSLR camera, your next step in photography journey is to get appropriate camera accessories, here we are happy to help you to get the most out of your DSLR camera.

Here I’ve listed 10 different types of DSLR accessories that are essential for your camera.

The accessories listed here will work on all types of Nikon and Canon cameras, including the following:
Nikon: D7X00 series (D7000, D7100, D7200, etc.), D5X00 series (D5500, etc.), D3X00 series (D3300, etc.)
Canon: All EOS Rebel series including T6i, T5i, SL1, T5 and Rebel T6 and EOS 70D

This list will be updated on an on-going basis to include the newer version of the accessories. So, bookmark this page for your future reference.

1. External Flash

The flash that comes with your DSLR camera is really weak. If you are shooting a lot of pictures indoors in a low light area, you definitely need to get an external flash that can be mounted on top of your DSLR camera. 

The flash mentioned below are portable and supports both hot-shoe (on top of the camera) and wireless (away from the camera) operations. They support some variation of TTL flash control. These flash have full swivel head with a 180-degree angle. Groups of these flashes can be controlled together. You can also add colour gelatin filters to the flash head. These are zoom flash heads.

For Nikon:

Nikon 4814 SB-500 AF Speedlight Flash  These work with all Nikon DSLR model. These are original high-quality flash built by Nikon. These are an excellent one-time investment you can make on a very high-quality flash. 


For Canon:

Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT Flash  – This work with all Canon DSLR model. These are the original high-quality flash built by Canon. This uses a new wireless multiple flash system over radio wave to control up to 5 groups of flashes.


2. Camera Bag

A high-quality DSLR camera bag is essential to protect your camera. I recommend that you consider using a backpack style camera bag (or) messenger style camera bag. The bags mentioned here are very low profile, extremely comfortable. These won’t look like a camera bag, which is a huge advantage.

Backpack style camera bag:

Smiledrive Waterproof Mini DSLR Backpack Camera Bag Lenses Case– Carry DSLR/SLR camera, lens, tripod, flashlight & other accessories: This hiking camera backpack is 31 x 25 x 11cm and yet lightweight, allows you to carry all kinds of equipment.

Messenger style camera bag:

AmazonBasics Camera Sling Bag – Camera bag with ergonomic and padded sling strap-rotate from back to front for quick, easy access. Fits 1 DSLR camera with attached zoom lens and 1 or 2 extra lenses or accessories fits most popular DSLR models.


3. UV Filters

Apart from reducing UV rays, this filter is a small investment that will protect your expensive lens from accidental bumps and breaks. These will protect your lens from dust, dirt and scratches. These will work on both Nikon and Canon lens.

Tiffen UV Protection Filter – This is one of the top brands for the UV filter. Choose the appropriate size depending on the type of lens you are using. Apart from the reduction in UV light, this also helps eliminate bluish cast in images.


AmazonBasics UV Protection Lens Filter – This is a cost-effective alternative.


4. External Microphone

If you are using your DSLR to record videos, you would’ve realized that the in-build microphone is very weak, and low quality. Adding an external microphone will make a dramatic difference in the quality of your video with a clear audio. All these microphones works on both Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras. 

NIKON Acc MISC Stereo Microphone ME-1 – The ME-1 Stereo Microphone connects to compatible DSLR cameras that have a 3.5mm Mic jack and features new innovation that significantly reduces autofocus noise from being recorded.


Nikon ME-W1 Wireless Microphone– Nikon ME-W1 Wireless Microphone for use with the Nikon D7200 DX-format DSLR
