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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
