The Eco-Photographer Essentials

This summer, I have become addicted to taking pictures – now that you can view and share them without ever having to drive to the camera shop, drop off your film, drive back and pick them up, then choose the ones you like and send them out…you get the point…life is much easier since we have all gone digital.

You can snap a pic, plug in to your laptop and upload or upload directly to a photo sharing service like Flickr from your mobile.

Now, even companies like Ritz and Nikon are getting in the eco-game with the release of the Nikon Coolpix S52 digital camera that comes in a limited edition green to help offset 2 tons of carbon emissions with every purchase. The goal is to offset 40,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the environment. And, the Nikon’s 9.0 megapixels are pretty sharp.

For the photographer not quite ready to trade-in the power and control of the Digital SLR, LowePro’s Primus bag is the perfect carryall. The backpack is made from 51% recycled material, giving plastic Coke bottles new life as a stylish and comfortable pack for hauling your gear.

The bag has room for your camera, an extra lens and flash in the lumbar region of the bag with two side hatches for easy access to extra gear. You can stash any other “day” essentials in the top portion of the bag.

For those new to digitally sharing files, here are a few great photo sharing services to check out:

Happy shooting and sharing!

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
