Remote control: An optional accessory for your digital SLR camera, but a very handy one, is a remote control for the shutter release. These remotes cost about $30 and allow you to use the bulb mode of the camera without having to physically hold down the shutter button (and therefore shaking the camera). With a remote control shutter button, you press it once to open the shutter, leave it open for as long as you need, and then press it again to close it. The remote also comes in handy for all types of night photography and for self-portraits.
