Two of the most interesting compact cameras to hit the market in the last year are the Sony DSCWX500 and the Sony DSCHX90V. They’re both fantastic little cameras and some nice third-party accessories can complement them.
I’ll start by listing some of the accessories you should consider picking up as well as some stuff that’s just more fun.
Sony DSC WX500 & HX90V Accessories And Gear
Sony WX500 & HX90V Batteries
If you need some extra batteries for your WX500 & HX90V you have two choices, Sony batteries or third party. Third-party batteries are a lot cheaper and usually just as good from my experience. What you have to be careful of is the third-party chargers and wall adapters. Those sometimes can give bad charges, so always charge your batteries in the camera or with a Sony charger if you can.

Sony WX500 & HX90V SD Memory Cards
There are a ton of options when it comes to memory cards. Almost any new card will work for stills but I recommend you always buy the latest in technology so the card will last you a few years. Right now you should buy an SDXC U3 memory card if you’re shooting on Sony cameras. This is because many of their features require these specs. For example, if you want to shoot a video with XAVC S, you need a card that’s 64GB or bigger.
As far as speed goes, some cards write faster than others but you’ll never really notice the difference in camera and you don’t necessarily need to buy the more expensive Sandisk Cards.
Fast But The Most Expensive

A lot of these smaller compact cameras can use similar carrying cases. The WX500 can use the same case as the HX90v and I’ll list what I’ve found at Adorama and Amazon.
Adorama used to have more colors but they are all available on Amazon now.
This also works as a half case and comes with a strap. It’s a pretty great deal.

You don’t need a whole lot of equipment to clean your compact camera. I usually just buy a pack of microfiber cloths and this gets the job done for almost anything to wiping the body down to cleaning the lens.

Sony WX500 &HX90V Accessories Conclusion
You don’t need a lot of accessories for your compact camera. It comes with everything you need, but if you’re shooting a lot, protect your gear with screen protectors and cases and get an extra battery and maybe an SD memory card and your camera should last you years.
