New DSLR user- what to carry in my bag?
Jun 11, 2010

After following the helpful advice from the forum I've bought my first DSLR- a used Nikon D70s, and a new Nikkor 18-105 VR lens. I've been really pleased with the initial results compared to my previous compacts.

I'm going to buy a LowePro Fastpack 350 to keep all my kit safe when we go on holiday. I've realised there will be a few other little items of essential kit I'll need to purchase, but I'm not sure exactly what else I'll need.

Up to now I've thought of an air blower (maybe a rocket blower?), an lens cleaning kit or pen (not sure which one) and a spare lens cap.

Are there any other bits of kit that will come in handy and help keep my camera in good shape?

Any recommendations would be great!
