The Photographer’s Everyday Carry (EDC)

Listen to the automated audio version of this article:

Here is my Photographer’s Everyday Carry (EDC).
EDC includes all the nifty tools you always carry with you that may come in handy to overcome simple everyday unexpected problems. The famous “I’ll bring that, just in case…” Think of these items as the spare tire in your car, but more likely to be used (hopefully) 😉

I suppose in this digital age, even phone apps may count as EDC… Perhaps, this may be material for another video…

Anyway, here in the video are all the items I carry with me every day as a photographer.
From the smallest tripods to external lights and so on. For cameras and smartphones. Almost all of them are under £20!

You can tell by how consumed some of these items are, that I actually use them. It’s not that I just made up a list of new products some companies sent me to review.
The video is not sponsored at all; it’s all my true Photographer’s Everyday Carry.

Safety Disclaimer
Before you buy the C13 Microknife, check the laws in your country. In the UK, the law is very strict, but officers have given me contradictory information about carrying this specific item around. To be safe, I only brought this out in the cold morning when I needed to open the tightly packed hand warmers while shooting a timelapse.
