Even the best cameras in the world need batteries, same as your laptop, smartphone, tablet, monitor, and, I’m assuming, a ton of your photo accessories. When you are at home or in the studio, it isn’t much of an issue. You just plug everything into the wall outlet to charge or stay powered up.

Mountains, models, music, and planes. We can think of no better way to kick off a trip to Vegas and the WPPI show. It’s also why B&H’s Creative Partnerships team held its first ever DayTripper event this past weekend.
