The piece of equipment which should be considered essential for landscape photography is a tripod. Ideally, this should be a solid tripod and not a $20 from the electronic shop. Since landscape photographers often work in harsh conditions or find themselves in weird positions, you want to invest in quality right away. Take this from someone who didn’t invest in quality right away and within months had spent the same amount of money on cheap tripods that he would have spent on something of better quality. A tripod is essential because you will often be working with shutter speeds that are too long to do hand held (at least if you want to get a sharp image).
