Useful Photography Gifts for $$$ Minded Santas!
There’s plenty of Holiday Shopping guides filled with all sorts of Holiday Gift ideas. Most photography related guides deal with high priced ticket items or absolutely useless gadgets and trinkets. Here’s the official Steve Troletti TOP 5 List. These five great gift suggestions are all under $100 and are sure to be a welcome addition to many photographer’s gear bag.
1. Giottos Rocket Air Blasters
The rocket-shaped air-blowers are made from a silica gel, they are very powerful and easy to use. They are made from nontoxic, environmentally friendly material, resistant to both high and low temperatures, tear-proof. It has an air valve to prevent it from breathing in dust and blows out a powerful stream of air to blow dust away, to make cleaning lenses, cameras, filters a breeze. Unique rocket-shaped design can stand upright, and its nozzle can be removed.
By far one of my favorite item. The most efficient little air blower on the market. It should be in every camera bag. The Giotto Rocket Air Blasters are available in different colors, sizes and various cleaning kits. Visit your local camera store like L. L. Lozeau in Montreal or buy online from Amazon or Ebay .
2. The Hoodman Hoodloupe
This is my second must have. The optics on this little loupe are incredible. The adjustable +/- 3 dioptre allows you to clearly view your LCD without the need for eye glasses. Very useful when shooting outdoor on bright sunny days as an LCD can be hard to read in those light conditions. There’s a whole list of accessories from hoodman for the hoodloupe including camera attachments and an eyecup.
The Hoodloupe is small, lightweight and robust. The included case and neck strap make it easy to carry anywhere. Visit your local camera store like L. L. Lozeau in Montreal or buy online from Amazon or Ebay .
3. The Seagull Right Angle Viewfinder
My favourite low cost alternative to those costly name brand right angle viewfinders. The Seagull Right Angle Viewfinder comes equipped with a universal adapter kit that should fit almost any SLR/DSLR you may have. It’s lightweight with great optical quality. The wide range dioptre makes it quick and easy to adjust to your eyesight. A handy neoprene carry case is also included.
A right angle finder is a must have item for the macro photographer and Seagull makes it affordable for everyone.
Visit your local camera store or buy online from Amazon or Ebay .
4. Collapsible Disc Light Reflector
One item that is seldom in a photographer’s kit, yet should be used more often is a Collapsible Disc, Light Reflector. Starting as small as 12 inches these discs often come in kits allowing you to reflect light in different shades and effects. Small discs are often used in macro photography while larger discs for portrait and group photos. Larger disc kits even come with a diffuser. I always carry a 12 inch disc on me for macro subjects.
Collapsible Disc Light Reflectors come in a variety of shapes, sizes and kits. They’re always an affordable gift idea. Visit your local camera store like L. L. Lozeau in Montreal or buy online from Amazon or Ebay .
5. Lowepro Photographer Gloves
With the cold winter weather arriving there’s no better gift than a pair of gloves specifically designed for photographers. Lowepro introduced a new version of their photographer gloves last year. These gloves are warmer than the previous knitted version and still offer a fingertip opening for perfect control of your camera settings. The Lowepro Photographer Gloves are available in Small, Medium and Large. Visit your local camera store like L. L. Lozeau in Montreal or buy online from eBay.
We hope you like these affordable photography gifts. We believe these affordable Holiday Stocking Stuffer will offer great value, usefulness and put a smile on every photographer this Holiday Season!
From everyone at Steve Troletti Photography we Wish You a Happy Holiday Season!
