Here’s 10 tried and true DSLR accessories. Whether you’re a casual photog, or serious videographer, be sure to check-out Clint’s list of must-have kit.

Canon EOS Rebel T4i: Only $899 (body only) and continuous auto-focus for video make it a strong alternative to the EOS 60D, a higher priced DSLR sibling.

For many, the T4i is clearly the better choice. And it’s $100 less expensive to boot!

Audio is just as important as the footage. So at minimum buy a Rode Videomic (I have one on my Canon EOS 60D about 95% of the time), or if your budget allows, step up to the Rode NTG-1.

The 5D Mark III specs are almost — almost — enough to make me stand next to the Grape Crusher in Napa and scream out, “Epic who?!”

The results I’ve been able to achieve with Lightroom 4 in just a few weeks of casual testing have, for lack of a better expression, blown me away. Granted, I’m not looking to land the next American Photo or Life magazine cover.

I love my EOS 60D, but the T3i and T2i use the same sensor, and can be had for a song. For example, you can get the T3i plus kit lens for only $712. That, my friends, is insanity. Revel while you can.

This holiday season expect the Amazon Kindle Fire, the iPad 2, and even some of the more popular, well-priced Android tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 to go gang-busters at the (virtual) cash register.

Even with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and EOS 60D now on the market, the T2i continues to impress–and I whole-heartedly recommend it to those looking to get into DSLR. I took it down to the Baja for a few weeks and shot over 1,000 photos.

If you like to shoot video, the Canon EOS T2i is a great pick; I especially like its 24fps mode, and ability to easily mount shotgun mics.

One thing I know with the Canon T2i (and T3i, 60D…) is that on-board camera audio is a non-starter for all but the most casual of applications. Just don’t do it – fine for reference audio for syncing later, but for anything else external audio is a must.
