Gift Ideas for Photographers

Black Friday is almost upon us and if you have a photographer on your list then you probably won’t get them anything they want. Why? Because the things we want include 16-hundred dollar lenses and 5-thousand dollar camera bodies. But no fear, you don’t have to break the bank.

In October, I blogged about stocking stuffers for photographers. I’m still on the look-out for great deals and gift ideas like these cool lens bracelets:

Lance Armstrong’s got nuthin’ on these! They’ll set you back about 10-bucks.

I blogged about this one too awhile back:

This next one costs more, but is still a great deal. Pro Studio Supply is selling Adobe Lightroom 3 for $219. That beats Amazon and B&H by about 60-bucks.

[UPDATE: 11:34AM] Just got an email from Adobe. Great prices on Photoshop Elements 9 and Lightroom 3.

That’s if for now. All the big name retailers (Adorama, B&H, Amazon) are advertising deals and promising Black Friday promotions; but I wanted to give you some options that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

If I see any amazing deals, I’ll post them. If you hear of any, let me know. Until then, Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I liked the lens bracelet idea because I am always looking for a new gadget for my camera. I immediately googled to see how it would be used to enhance my Photopraghic Skliz. What can I say???? I’m a dumb a _ _ ! Thanks for the laugh Harry.

    • HaHa! No, I get it; it’s not the best name. First of all, it’s not a bracelet for the lens and secondly, it’s not really a lens; but more like the focus ring. But I guess “Focus Ring Wrist Bracelet” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
