Twig Pod folding monopod sticks in the ground for hands free photos

If you are the type of person that goes for lots of hiking, camping, or other activities where you find yourself outdoors taking photos a new monopod has been unveiled that might be perfect for you. The idea behind the Twig pod is pretty cool. There is no need for a tripod to allow you to take hands free photos since a tripod is a lot more bulky than a monopod if you have soft ground nearby. This is where the Twig Pod comes in with its pointy spike end.

Camera Lens Cap Holder will keep you from losing your lens cap

I use a Nikon DSLR most of the time when I am shooting photos. The thing I always seem to misplace is the lens cap. I have had it fall out of my pocket several times while moving around taking photos and my wife always lays it somewhere when she uses the camera and can't find it later. I have spent much more time than I ever wanted to searching for my lens cap. A cool new product has landed on Kickstarter that will prevent lost lens caps if it gets the needed funds.

Solar camera strap concept ideal for sunshine shutterbugs

Solar camera strap concept ideal for sunshine shutterbugs

As concepts go, here's one we wouldn't be surprised to see sprout into a commercial release in the very near future.  Weng Jie's solar camera strap is designed to not only let photographers eke out a few more shots, but to do so making use of the sun's energy rather than bulky external power packs.

Rather sensibly, the strap basically replaces the neck cord most DSLR users wear to keep their cameras readily to hand with a solar-cell encrusted version.  Clipping on to the camera's mounting points as normal, it would also have a DC plug to gradually top-up the DSLR's battery during use.  Of course you'd need sufficient sun to make it worthwhile, so indoor photographers probably shouldn't bother, but anyone out and about should be able to hammer through a few more frames at least.
