Photography can be very expensive hobby in general, and we tend to focus on quite large price tag items. Camera and lenses are always top of mind for new purchase, but still there are many different accessories that can help you to improve your photography, that don’t cost so much, but can create so visible results.
First is first, you have a nice 300mm lens, but all your photos came up blurry and out of focus, good stabilization is the key. In nature and outdoor environment you cant usually find a good stance so a good tripod or monopod is essential for the perfect shoot.
Z07-2 Portable Retractable Hand-held Digital Camera Monopod Unipod is quite a good choice for under $15.
When looking for a tripod or monopod look closely about the weight and portability, because you will have to carry that thing with you, and you don’t want another dead weight on you back, and you don’t want something that will prevent you to go throe dense woods.
Another good choice is this, specially if you have more heavier equipment Manfrotto 680B Monopod 4-SCTN Manfroto is proven and trusted brand, and it can hold up to 22.00 lbs of equipment. But still its under the $100 price tag, and also you will not be broken backed with it around.
If you want a tripod, Amazon is offering cheep solution in their essential range for under $25, as it’s lightweight, it’s not designated to hold to much weight ether – no solution for big lens nor DSLR.
If you are a bit more serious photographer, with a bit more serious equipment, you will have to go to more reliable solutions, such as Dolica GX600B200 Proline GX Series 60-Inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head Combo for DSLR. Made for heavy lifting, but still affordable.
