PLEASE DON’T SMEAR SPF 30 all over your camera. But if you’re taking it to the beach, the lake, the desert, Burning Man, or the Earth’s core, these inexpensive items can help prevent your camera from damage.
This isn’t so much for protecting your camera as it is your photos. Chances are that if you’re someplace hot, you’re dealing with a lot of daylight, which isn’t always ideal for photography.
Polarizing filters absorb 1.5 stop of light and help eliminate reflections. Using one will deepen the colors of your photos, even during the brightest time of day.
