iErnest camera strap

Ooo, take a look at this very nice camera strap. It has an elastic shock absorber (it’s adjustable) to reduce neck and shoulder pressure as well as a few extra details that set it far above your current strap. There’s no plastic parts or connectors, and small leather discs pad the metal D-rings and protect your camera. There’s also a concealed neoprene neck pad for extra comfort. Oh, and, of course, it looks (and probably feels) expensive because it is.

Joby Gorillapod Micro

These tripods were released last year but have since flew under my radar until a recent visit to The Moma Design Store. Joby are the experts are in making compact, infinitely adjustable tripods. If you don’t know the name you certainly know the design. After expanding their market to carry bigger, heavier SLRS and video cameras, they’ve decided to size down for their next major product release. The Gorillapod Mirco is designed to always stay on your camera, prepared for any impromptu shot. Simply fan out the legs and prop on a surface. It’s quite remarkable that they were able to squeeze a rotating and tilting ball head into such a small design. Available in two sizes: the Micro 250 and the more robust Micro 800.

Twig Pod

This pointy footed monopod will assist you on your outdoor travels. It collapses down to 8″ and works just like a tent rod with a bungee tension line so you can assemble it in a snap. A ball-head mount allows for vertical or horizontal (or whatever angle) shots. It’s intended for compact cameras (fits standard tripod thread ), so you pros with DSLRs are out of luck.

Fuuvi Bee 8mm Digital Camera

Expedition Wooden Tripod

Amateur or pro, this wooden tripod would no doubt become an heirloom in any photographer’s toolkit. Built in the same way for over 100 years in Germany by Berlebach, the tripod is made of sustainably harvested ash wood and extends from 2 to 6 feet. An aluminum core keeps it light at 6.20 lbs, meaning you can tote it around semi-comfortably at events or short hikes. Also, did you know that wood absorbs vibration naturally? So, less worries about shaky pics.

Red Pop

Another Kickstarter project to feast your eyes upon: the Red Pop is an accessory that adds a big, red button to the iPhone so you can take photos easier. Instead of tapping around on the iPhone’s screen, the Red Pop’s button brings back a little of the old camera feel, giving you a firm grip on the phone as well as less down time between photos. The goal has been met for 1st production, but you are still able to pledge $75 or more to receive one of the very first Red Pops. For more details, visit Redpop’s kickstarter page.

Pin-hole Solargraphy Camera

From our archives (originally published December 14, 2009), for your gift list consideration… to see more, visit our Gift Guide.

If you’re still lost on small gift ideas, this pinhole camera is pretty much the perfect stocking stuffer for just about everyone.

Focal length 20mm. F stop F/130. Pinhole cameras do not have optical lenses. Film is exposed by light through a tiny hole in front of camera. Because there is no lens, the image will be in focus at all distances. Best pinhole pictures are taken on a bright day. The camera must be very still when shooting. Exposure times range from 5 seconds to hours and sometimes days.
