Too bad there's nothing to recommend that isn't made/sold by amazon.

The introduction does say: " If you're just looking for a few basics that will put them on the right track, Amazon has loads of camera accessories under their AmazonBasics which might be just what they need."

We have linked to some of our other kit round-ups and top 10 articles at the bottom you may find of interest. Also, we'd be more than happy to produce a more generic list of reasonably priced accessories seen as though this is what you're interested in.
