We have put together 12 lists of recommended holiday gifts for the photographer in your life. Today’s list is gifts under $150. Check back each day for the next list.
Spider Camera Holster SpiderPro Hand Strap
Extremely comfortable, form fitting and adds a bit of security to the grip
Really tiny cubes (about the size of a GoPro Session) that allows you to produce a constant beam of light or use as a flash/strobe. Adjust the settings via the app or manual control on the light and waterproof to 100′
A Prime Lens
Almost every manufacturer offers a prime lens under $150. If the photographer in your life doesn’t have a prime lens this is a great gift that can help them get more creative and explore low light photography in a way not possible with slower kit lenses.
One year of Creative Cloud
A one year subscription to Lightroom and Photoshop is always a useful present- this always updated package provides all the software and power a photographer needs to post process their images.
External Drives from WD
Keep your photos safe and backed up – external storage is cheap! We love these smaller, travel friendly drives or the larger 4TB desktop drive- all for under $150
Fujifilm instax 210 Instant Film Camera
If you got a friend who’s not super serious about photography but still enjoy taking pictures or casually taking pictures, the Fujifilm instax cameras are a great choice. The Instax 210 is great for general photography and includes a close-up attachment.
MeFOTO BackPacker Travel Tripod
we travel often and the very portable MeFoto BackPacker Travel tripod has done everywhere with. Folding down to just 12.6″ and weighing only 2.2lbs – small enough to be tossed into all of our camera bags. I first reviewed this tripod in 2013 and despite my rough handling- and an unfortunate canoe incident where it spent 3 days under water – it continues to work well!
We will be back tomorrow with our next gift list and for the next 11 days! Stay tuned.
