It’s not always easy to buy a gift for a photographer. We are, seemingly by definition, very persnickety people, especially when it comes to the tools we use to capture the world. And there are technical complications to boot. If your beau wants a new flash or lens, you have to make sure you buy the right one for the camera. For lenses, even knowing the brand doesn’t help, as many make cameras that take different sizes and types of lenses. It’s complicated!
But fear not. You don’t have to buy something that directly attaches to a camera. There are lots of tools and toys out there that will work with many camera systems, and other fun tools, accessories, and stocking stuffers. They’ll light up your shutterbug’s heart, whether it be Christmas morning or the first night of Hanukkah.
