A camera with all the bells and whistles is not easy to carry around and good backpack that can easily carry the camera along with its accessories is a must have for a camera owner. The Lowepro Fastpack 250 makes for a great backpack with a sturdy build, massive number of compartments for different sized accessories and additional space for your laptop as well.
The collapsible reflector is a photographer’s best friend yet most don’t have one. Its purpose is to reflect light to the picture you are about to capture giving the picture the tone and color that you want by playing around with the angles. Since its collapsible it can easily fit into a backpack and can be carried around without any fuss.
Camera owners always love more memory cards since they are always losing them or running out of memory. The Eyefi card though not only has 16GB memory but can also send your pictures directly to a cloud! No more running out of memory ever again. Additionally it can send pictures to your Android/iOS device or laptop the moment you take them. Perfect Christmas gift for any camera owner.
Selfie Sticks get a bad rep and many photographers are too proud to buy one for themselves but it’s a really great device. Other than capturing selfies it can take the phone camera to positions that would be impossible for a digital camera and the Polaroid 40 inch Selfie Stick with its long reach can capture those shots that would be otherwise missed. Its compatible with any Android or iOS phone and has built-in Bluetooth remote that pairs easily with those devices.
While the Wi-Fi memory card is a great option it has the limitation that an internet connection is required which may not be possible all the time. This is where you need a good old memory card and when it comes to memory cards the bigger the better. Get your friend a 128GB memory card this Christmas and they’ll love it.

Not only does it protect your camera from rain and snow it’s designed such the camera is still very easy to operate even with the cover on.

Great Christmas gift for photographers who live in rainy cities or travel a lot.
The X-Rite Color Checker Passport is a powerful tool that any photographer will find more than handy. It’s basically a color calibrator and allows the photographer a lot of freedom so they can adjust the color and lighting of their photos to make them more consistent and the colors exactly like they want.
Photographers need their coffee on their long trips and what better to keep it warm than in a camera lens themed travel mug. The mug holds up to 16 oz of coffee, looks exactly like a camera lens, is easy to hold and keeps coffee warm for a long time.
