10 Gifts to Buy a Photographer for Christmas

As photographers ourself over here at DSLR Warehouse, we have put together a littler list of the most popular and affordable camera gear and equipment you can find this Holiday season.  These are all items we use in our arsenal of Camera Gear and we stand by the products.  If you were to purchase all the items below, you would be getting them all for under $2500 which is a steal for the amount of gear and versatility all these items have. 

1. Joby Gorilla Pod 3K

This 3k (kilogram) versatile tripod is great for any occasion by Joby

We used this photo to specifically show you the versatility of this Joby Gorilla Pod.  Many vloggers today swear by it and so do we.  It is great to have in a camera bag because the legs will warp and wrap around just about any object, securing some odd angle shots.  See more about this item here.

2. Olympus TG-5 Waterproof Camera

One of the only underwater cameras that shoot RAW Olympus Tough TG-5

We have searched and compared on our old site point and shoot under water cameras.  Other than purchasing a case (which are insanely expensive) for your DSLR, we would recommend the Olympus TG-5 Tough Camera.  This camera is great for all you winter and year round adventures.  It produces 12 megapixel images and it is water proof up to 15 meters. Most importantly it shoots in RAW.  We couldn’t find any other underwater cameras under $400 that shoot in RAW, which is why this makes our list.  Make sure to see more here.

3. Peak Design Camera Wrist Strap

Keep your investment attached to you and out of others hands with Peak Design

If you are a street photographer or someone that uses a light weight DSLR or Mirrorless camera, we suggest this Peak Design quick release wrist wrap.  If you or any of your friends have had their camera stolen from their hands while in the city, you will know the importance of this strap.  I once witnessed a guy on a bicycle ride by my friend and snatch his $2000 dollar camera out of his hand in downtown Los Angeles.  Don’t be a victim, get your wrist wrap today.  See more by Peak Design here.

4. DJI Osmos 2 Handheld Stabilizer

Great stabilizer for sports and action video by DJI. Osmos 2.

We have used the Shinyun Smooth 3 axis and the DJI Osmo before.  The only reason we are giving the tie breaking decision to DJI is because their customer service is excellent.  They are quick if you have question about your product or if you have to send it in for warranty repair.  This 3 axis is perfect for the photographer using their cell phone to recored 4k video or vlog.  Keeps a great smooth motion and design for the hobbyist in mind.

6. Wacom Intuous Drawing Tablet 

Edit and illustrate on the go with the Wacom Tablet today!

If you are serious about your illustrations and photoshop editing, we suggest the Wacom Intuous Tablet. This is the smaller of the two tablets they offer.  The reason we include this in our top 10 list is because is small and travel friendly.  If you are on the go, you can hook this into the USB on your laptop and go to town and any local coffee shop.  The Wacom Pro is great for being at home but not on the go.  Check out your options here at Wacoms website!

7. DJI Mavic Air Quadcopter Drone

DJI Mavic Air only $799 this Holiday Season

This little drone was the best seller for DJI this past year until the release of the Mavic Pro 2.  However, the Mavic pro 2 may be the better drone with the hassleblad camera, the Mavic Air is half the price and just about as good of a drone.  There is a lot to say about this little drone but I will let you read more here at www.myfirstdrone.com.
