Worried about running out of memory storage when travelling? Don’t forget to bring a portable hard drive to free up some memory space! The Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Hard Drive is an excellent slim and portable option storing up to 2TB and is light and easy to bring along with you.

4. Flash Diffuser

Whether you are going on a night time tour or going cave exploring, sometimes a flash is necessary to take pictures in dim lighting. Using flash often gets a bad rep as it is known to overexpose photos or create unflattering shadows. A flash diffuser can be perfect for these shots as it softens the effects of the flash. You can either buy flash diffusers, such as the Flash Diffuser Speedlight Softbox Kit or you even create your own by taping white coffee filters or waxed paper onto your flash. While this may not be the most durable option, it can be a cheaper and reasonable alternative for those worried about losing their equipment when travelling!

5. Camera Backpack

A camera backpack is an essential when bringing your camera with you on hikes or even exploring a new city. Check out the Thule EnRoute Camera Backpack a versatile backpack that has a pouch specifically for storing and protecting your camera!
