    GPS comes in a number of forms and can be designed for use in your car, for taking out with you on a hike, for wearing as a watch, or as an app on your smartphone. If it works properly, you’ll never be lost no matter where you are in the world as long as you have your GPS device on you.

    2. Compass

    The compass: it’s centuries old and its basic design has changed little. Compasses are reliable tools that still remain essential to many of the more adventurous photographers today. Okay, many people these days have access to GPS to tell them where they are in the world, but should your data fail you in more remote locations, you know you can still rely on your trusty compass.

    3. Access to Google Maps and Google Earth

    Google Maps and Google Earth are extremely useful (and free) services. Photographers can plan the best route to take to their shoot using Google Maps, and Google Earth really comes into its own for landscape photography.

    Photographers can view any location, anywhere on the planet using Google Earth. The service allows you to view terrain in great detail amongst other features. This is incredibly useful for planning a landscape shoot – you will know just where you need to be before you arrive in order to take the shot you want.

    4. Power adapters

    For photographers who travel abroad, power adapters are a gadget you can’t afford to be without. Imagine getting off a long flight, reaching your hotel exhausted and finding that you can’t plug your laptop or iPad in, or charge your batteries, because you haven’t brought the right adapter with you. There’s nothing more frustrating. We know – we’ve been there!

    5. Hard drive
