Bigshot Camera

Build a fully functional digital camera! While the Bigshot Camera would be enormously effective in any learning environment, you might also benefit from understanding how science makes capturing images possible. There’s three different lens settings, three fields of view, a flash, a lithium polymer (rechargable) battery, and a hand crank for back up power. Just follow the instructions and in no time you’ll be clicking away. If you do buy one for yourself, also consider buying one for someone else (kid or adult) that would enjoy assembling and using the camera, as $89 is a small price to pay for this sort of knowledge.

Lytro Light Field Camera

Remember the Lytro? This little camera is pretty special; you can focus each picture after you take it.

Take a look at their living pictures to get the idea. Now priced at $199-$249. (Also, if you’re more serious about your photography, you’ll want to take a look at the Lytro Illum).

The Autographer

Hmm, if you’re the type of person who likes looking through loads of photographs, then this little gadget will be your best friend. The Autographer is a wearable camera that automatically takes pictures as you go about your day. A GPS, a compass, accelerometer, thermometer, color sensor and infrared motion detector are all utilized in order to figure out the best time to snap a shot. You can set the capture rate, and it will grab 50 to 100 photos an hour, leaving you to enjoy your hike/bike ride/vacation/adventure.

Impossible Instant Lab

Just one more thing today from the Kickstarter at MoMA collection, I promise. The Impossible Instant Lab is now available, and you’ve got better self restraint than most of us if you can resist the temptation of having your own photo lab at your fingertips. Here’s how it works: select a picture from your device using the Instant Lab iOS App, place it on the Instant Lab, and wait a few moments. You’ll see an analog photo appear and develop, just like the Polaroids from way back when. High five to the Impossible Lab for making this project a reality.

Nice! Now your iPhone can have real shooting controls thanks to Snappgrip. It mounts to a protective phone case so you can use it when you want (and detach it when you don’t). The Snappgrip has a Shooting Mode, Portrait, Landscape, Flash, Video, Zoom In, and Zoom Out functions, plus a standard tripod mount on the underside and a standby power switch. How’s that for bridging the gap between smartphone photography and more expensive cameras?

Eye-Fi Memory Card

Here’s a little magic you can share this holiday season. You know how your pics and video are stuck on your camera until you upload them via a cable? That’s no longer the case when you have an Eye-Fi Memory Card; it instantly transfers your shots from your camera to your mobile device or computer. Eye-Fi cards create their own WiFi connections wherever you are, and initiates transfers whenever new content is detected by your device. There are a couple of options available: the Mobi, which allows your camera to connect to your smartphone or tablet, and the Pro X2, which additionally connects to computers. Learn more at Eye-Fi.

Polaroid Z340, Z2300 Cameras

Polaroid fans, your wish came true. It’s back now, better than ever. Perhaps you’d like an updated version of the original? Take a look at the Polaroid Z340 Instant Camera. It delivers instant 3″x4″ prints, and also has a bonus of shooting 14 megapixel digital photos that you can save and edit. And- it gets better- it’s compatible with your SD card, which means you can print photos shot on other digital cameras.

If a smaller camera is more your style, then you’ll want to read up on the Polaroid Z2300, a digital camera that makes instant sticky-back prints at the push of a button. Stickers! It takes video too. No doubt one of these two cameras will be added to many a holiday wish list this season.

Photostrap

If you’re semi-serious about photography, you need a good camera strap. And, hey, if you can get one that’s a little more customized to your color preference, and maybe even with a monogram on the shoulder pad, then that’s even better. Should you need further encouragement, 10% will be donated from every purchase to Fotolanthropy, a non-profit that gives portrait sessions and short films to inspiring people who are overcoming adversity.

The Pocket Reflector

What fits in your pocket and makes your next selfie look better? No, it’s not a flask filled with a strong inebriant, it’s this Pocket Reflector, that’s what. And, don’t worry, I say ‘selfie’ in an ironic sort of way, because goodness knows you’re much too busy to take a photo of yourself in your latest outfit/hat/sunglasses, much less with the right sort of lighting. Of course this would be for taking more professional-looking pictures of friends and family, riiight? The Pocket Reflector has a silver side to reflect bright concentrated light and a white side for softer, more natural-looking light. It measures 12″ in diameter and folds up to fit into a 5″ carrying case.

Sun and Cloud Self-Generating Digital Camera

A self-generating digital camera? That means it’s capable of self-generated power by its own solar panel or charged manually with a hand crank. Don’t worry though, you can manually charge it via USB if you’re lazy and there’s no sun. It can take still shots and video with sounds and has many modern functions with a retro look. Pretty intriguing, to say the least, and some might even say necessary for documenting whatever the future might bring.

Pinhole Art DIY Combo

Add this to the list of possible perfect gifts. This cardboard and paper DIY Combo can use 35mm or 120 film and allows for partial-frame and multiple exposures. Perhaps there will be more than a few soft focused images that quality as ‘art’ when using this puppy… you won’t know until you try it out. Also, not that you need reminding (because you’re so on top of things this year), but time is running short for shipping time, so best do your ordering today.
