Archival Review: Camera Accessories

As a follow up to my post on film cameras, here are a few archival accessories to complete your kit.



Custom straps and leather cases by Luigi (image courtesy Martin Sequerah).

Waxed cotton camera satchel by Strawfoot bags (image and review via Wood & Faulk)

Diminuitive Avea gadget pockets and pouches by Billingham

Economical Gnome custom bag for the GRiii (waxed canvas and truck tarping)
Synthetic exception. Durable neoprene SLR camera cover by Zing


Domke pouches in dry finish and waxed canvas. Made in USA


Calumet protective wrap. Great, less structured approach to transporting equipment

Ona waxed cotton camera bag insert. Designed for non-camera bags


My Billingham insert and camera bag. Too much leather trim for my taste but made from best quality materials. I’ve moved the insert over to my Archival Field Bag

Beautiful mono tubular Tiltall tripods. Still made in USA. I found mine at a thrift store. Great info page on the history of Tiltall here

  1. Thanks so much for posting! Great list of accessories. It’s refreshing to see non-synthetic and handmade goods here. I am about to pull the trigger on a Gordy’s leather wrist strap and a custom Gnome camera bag (so reasonably priced!); just waiting to for my Micro 3/4 Canon lens adaptor to come in so I can decide which setup I want to use. 🙂
