Let's face it photography is an expensive hobby. Cameras cost a bunch and DSLR lenses often are more expensive than the camera. After you grasp the amount of money you need to spend on the bare essentials it can be disheartening to think about coming up with another fortune for accessories.

However, there's good news, there are lots of photo accessories priced under $25 (US). Here's a list containing my favorites, while they often a priced much less than $25. However I don’t consider them to be "budget or cheap" articles. They are invaluable tools I would have these items n my gadget bag even if the cost wasn't an issue. The combination of low cost along with value means they also make great gifts.
