A fur hair band. Fits around the 16-50 SEL kit lens, and reduces wind noise quite a bit. At least on the A6000, where the microphones are close to the lens.

Cost me all of 62 cents on Aliexpress. Seems to improve the sound for videos a lot.

Ahoy!

Ahoy!

I bought 5x elasticated lens cap keepers from eBay (China) for USD $0.50c (delivered). Similar to what I bought, see eBay item: 271936844833 for GBP £0.99p (delivered) from HK.

A very handy accessory.

I was thinking that one of those plastic travel soap bar containers would work really sweet.

lenspen
black rapid strap (can't live without it)
velcro: I use it to attach color gel on strobes among other things.
To be more precise I use pieces of bicycle tubes as bands with velcro sewed on it that I wrap around the flash head.
This dehumidifier.

Blackrapid backpack strap (or other manufacturer's equivalents). Really handy when hiking because you do not have to take off your backpack to access your camera. Especially important when you have a very heavy backpack.

I just love this thing.
