02 MYMYK CAM­ERA AU­DIO SYS­TEMS

Plan to shoot video with your brand new snap­per? Get bet­ter sound rather than re­ly­ing on your in­built mic via Aussie firm Mymyk. We rec­om­mend the SmartMyk shot­gun mic and wind­shield, and also the SmartLynk com­pact two-chan­nel mixer, which en­ables you to mon­i­tor sound be­fore and dur­ing record­ing.

03 VAN­GUARD ‘HA­VANA’ BAG

In­spired by the crum­bling Cuban cap­i­tal, this clas­sic bag doesn’t scream that it has ex­pen­sive cam­era equip­ment in­side – and you can also con­vert it into a gen­eral-use mes­sen­ger bag by re­mov­ing the insert. There’s also a stack of room for your lap­top and so on if you feel like go­ing full At­ten­bor­ough.

04 METZ 44 AF-2 FLASH­GUN

One flash for stills and video? In­con­ceiv­able! Check out this ver­sa­tile third- party flash­gun aimed at DSLR and CSC users. The Metz fea­tures a guide num­ber of 44 (ISO100 and 105mm), a mo­torised 24105mm zoom, a bounce and swivel head, an in­te­grated 12mm wide-an­gle dif­fuse, a flip-out bounce- re­flec­tor card and an LED lamp. It’s fu­ture­proof, as firmware up­dates are in­stalled via the in­te­grated USB socket.

05 SAMSUNG POR­TA­BLE T3 SSD DRIVE

Yes, we can al­ways buy a big­ger-ca­pac­ity me­dia card if we want to shoot more stills and video in the field. But an al­ter­na­tive for power users is a por­ta­ble drive. The T3 (great name!) also en­ables blaz­ing­fast file trans­fer: read/write speeds of up to 450MB/s, with a USB 3.1 in­ter­face up to four times faster than al­ter­na­tive HDD so­lu­tions. With no me­chan­i­cal parts, it weighs a feather-light 51g.
