"Pictures or it did not happen" is the common argument of most people against people claiming they have visited a certain vacation spot. Posting a photograph of one's travel destination on social media is another way to validate one's claims. Photography is an essential part of a vacation nowadays and if the priority is to take scenic, memorable shots of scenery, then the following gears could prove essential.

Pocket spotlights, powered by a smartphone's USB or lightning connector in the case of Apple devices, are great ways to take good selfies in low light settings. The light continuously shines on your face, so best be prepared for the sudden blinding flash. A continuous stream of light allows you to take smartphone selfies with proper lighting and definition of details to be highlighted.

DSLRs are useful for taking scenic shots, but what if you wanted to take a grand selfie of yourself or co-travelers with an amazing camera? The Triggertrap, according to Digital Photography School, takes care of this. It has one cord plugged into the camera and the other into the phone. An application for Triggertrap allows customization of triggers from sound, motion and even face detection as photo triggers.

Going to the beach or somewhere with snow and gear could get wet or corroded? Carry ziplock bags. According to Mapping Megan, ziplock bags are handy, especially in rainy travel locations. Freak rain is common even in summer spots and sand in beaches or deserts could get into equipment, and nothing like plastic could stop anything outside from entering your gear, including moisture.

Card and spare battery cases in a photographer's bag are essential, especially for travelers who take plenty of test shots. The problem is, SD cards could get lost quickly and a card case is essential to ensure they are in one, accessible case.

For smartphone photographers, lens cameras are available from Sony. The Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras have great control over white balance, exposure settings and even manual control for zooming. Conveniently take amazing professional grade photos with your smartphone with these add-on lenses.
