Ten items you should have in your camera bag
Smartphone / Tablet computer
If you're out and about it's always a good idea to have a phone on you, especially if you're on your own. But as well as emergency use, smartphones and tablet computers are also incredibly useful photographic tools. There are countless applications available to help with everything from compositional basics to depth of field calculations, and sun-tracking apps can tell you exactly where the sun rises, sets and tracks across the sky at your location. This is hugely useful for landscape and architectural photography. You can also use mobile devices to store PDF user manuals for your gear.
