Peak Design Back Pack Camera Clip
This is a great accessory to keep your camera handy when you are hiking and also snapping at the same time. Hook your camera to your backpack strap while climbing and quickly get ready to snap your next best nature shot within seconds instead of digging through your bag.
A camera remote, or remote triggers, can be wires or wireless and is a device you typically use when you want to avoid camera shake during a long exposure. This can be particularly useful while hiking!
There are wireless options and of course each manufacturer makes their own, but they tend to be more costly. The wired options from Foto&Tech are reliable and under $15.
While hiking, bringing a full-size tripod can be cumbersome and take up a lot of valuable space. Having a good travel tripod will go a long way. This compact tripod is lightweight, comes with its own case and can easily go anywhere with you.
