Stocking Stuffers for Photographers

Thanksgiving is behind us and holiday shopping is now in full swing. To help you with your holiday shopping list, the Camera Land staff has come up with their favorite stocking stuffers for the photographer in your life.

  1. Remote

A remote shutter will help you fix camera shake that is sometimes hard to avoid. Once you synch your remote, you can mount your camera to a tripod, or simply set it on a secured surface, and stand back with the shutter release in your hand and push the button. This is great for taking still shots, family photos, or low-light photographer when you need your shutter to stay open longer.

  1. Camera and Lens Cleaning Kit

This is a must-have for any photographer – from beginner to professional. Get in the habit of cleaning your equipment on a regular basis. Cameras collect a lot of dust so it may be best to clean your lenses and mirrors every time you switch to a different lens.

  1. Extra Memory Cards and Batteries

Every photographer knows that extra memory cards and batteries are essentials. There is nothing worse than running out of space or ‘juice’, so make sure your favorite photographer is equipped with the little extras they need.

  1. Studio/Location Lighting Item

A reflector kit or an external flash can come in handy when lighting conditions are not ideal. While photo editing software can help, nothing replaces the beauty of great lighting. Find one that is easy to carry so you’ll always have it when you need it.

  1. Schedule a Class

Give the gift of knowledge and purchase a class at Camera Land. Choose from a group class or a one-on-one lesson. Our private lessons include an hour with one of our experts and we will teach them anything they want, from learning about cameras to the basics of photography, to advanced photography techniques.

  1. A New Lens

Has your photographer had their eye on a certain lens? Maybe they need an upgrade or they’re looking to take their photography in a fun, new direction? If Santa has deep pockets, consider a new lens.

  1. Camera Land Gift Card

If you’re at a loss, you can never go wrong with a Camera Land gift card. A gift card allows them to pick out exactly what they want and you won’t have to worry about a thing!

You won’t go wrong by picking out one (or more) of these items for your favorite photographer. If you need help deciding, stop in store or give us a call at 516-217-1000 and talk to one of our photography experts. We’re here to help – it’s what we love to do!

We wish everyone a very Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Swarovski Z6 & Z6i Riflescope Price Reduction

Yes, you read the header correctly….. Swarovski has lowered the prices on all their Swarovski Z6 & Z6i Riflescopes. To make this announcement even more exciting, we have all models in stock ready to ship.

WHEN SECONDS ARE CRUCIAL

The elegant appearance conceals the state-of-the-art technology that gives you maximum performance at the crucial moment. The Z6(i) makes no compromises when it comes to outstanding optical performance. The large zoom range, the reticle that can be used as illuminated or non-illuminated, and the large eye relief ensure greater flexibility, higher precision, and greater safety when hunting. Its smart SWAROLIGHT function to the reticle is switched on when you move into the firing position. It saves time and energy, and ensures that you can focus on the main business at hand

Swarolight:
Automatic shut-on and shut-off with inclination sensor for illuminated reticles, optimised electronics for higher battery life.

Swaroclean:
This non-stick coating on the lenses makes it easier to clean away dirt such as water marks, insect repellents, or tree resin.

6x Zoom:
The hallmark of the Z6 rifle scope: the 6x zoom combines a large field of view with pinpoint detail.

High Grid technology:
For even greater clarity and sharper delineation in the reticle of illuminated rifle scopes: even illumination for perfect reticle visibility. Maximum brightness in daylight and high-precision control into the night.

4A-300, BRX AND BRH Distance Reticles:
These reticles have been specifically developed for precise, accurate long-range shooting. Also available in illuminated versions.

Please feel free to give us a call to discuss these great scopes or anything else @ 516-217-1000.
