Winter holidays are a great time to take lots of cool pictures. And these photos don’t have to be simple family shots – there are lots of opportunities to take lovely photos of Christmas decorations, Hannukah dreidels and winter landscapes. So, let’s make sure your camera is ready for the holidays! Here’s a short checklist that will help.

Check your camera and lenses

The first thing you should do is make sure that your camera is in good working order and the lens (or the lenses for your DSLR) are clean. Use a lens cleaning kit to take care of dirty lenses.

Make sure you have a backup battery

It’s so annoying when your camera’s battery becomes flat when you are about to take a brilliant shot. To prevent that from happening, make sure your camera is fully charged and you have a backup battery.

Make room on your SD card

Do you keep all your unsorted photos on your camera’s SD or microSD card? If yes, then it’s a good idea to move them somewhere else so that you have enough room for new photos. At the very least, sort through your shots, find similar photos and delete the ones you don’t need leaving only the best picture. If you don’t feel like wasting hours on this tedious task, Duplicate Photo Cleaner will help you do the job in minutes. Just run a scan with the similarity threshold set to 80%, examine the results and bulk-delete the images you don’t need.

We wish you happy holidays and lots of beautiful and creative photos!
