Welcome to BuyDig’s Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: For Photographers. Whether you’re shopping for an aspiring photojournalist, a professional wedding photographer, or an Instagram fanatic, we’ve got the tech you need to bring smiles to the holiday album this year.
Here’s a stocking stuffer that is sure to please the Instalove enthusiast in desperate need of an upgrade from their smartphone camera, the Nikon COOLPIX L30. This point and shoot takes a 20.1 MP sensor, HD 720p video, and a Nikkor 5x optical zoom lens and packages it in a sleek, portable festive red package that fits perfectly in a coat pocket or purse. Its simplicity and ease of use make it great for beginners, but the quality of its lens and its stylish body makes it a great gift for the professional who doesn’t always want to lug their bulky DSLR to the party.
Some say that sleek and slim mirrorless cameras are the future and will eventually replace their bulkier DSLR counterparts—while we’re not taking sides, this Sony Alpha a6000 starter kit is the perfect way to help your favorite photographer introduce themselves to the exciting new world of high performance mirrorless cameras. This kit includes a 40.5 mm 3 filter set, a 49 mm 3 filter set,16-50 mm Power Zoom Lens, 55-210 mm Zoom lens, 32 GB memory card, a rapid battery charger, spare battery, and handy carrying case among other items.
For the rugged outdoorsy type that needs a camera that’s just as rugged as they are, the Olympus TG-4 reigns supreme. Waterproof up to depths of 50 ft (15m), capable of performing under freezing temperatures up to 14 °F (-10 °C), crushproof to 220 lbf (100kgf) and able to withstand a 7 ft (2.1 m) drop, this is the camera you want by your side when you’re out and about exploring the wilderness. The TG-4 sports a fast f2.0 wide angle lens, gps and electronic compass, and the ability to swap on interchangeable lenses for additional functionality. This versatile camera is a great gift for scuba divers and mountain climbers alike.
For the adrenaline junkie who’s always looking for fresh new action videos to upload to their YouTube channel, there’s no denying that the GoPro Hero4 Session is the gift to get this holiday season. Released earlier this year, the Session is GoPro’s smallest, lightest and most convenient camera yet—cramming 8MP photo and 1080p video functionality into a 1.5 x 1.43 x 1.5 inch cube. Rugged and waterproof to 33 ft (10 m), the Session can easily be mounted anywhere from the nose of your surfboard to the bottom of a hang glider. With its easy one button control scheme, simply press once to start recording video or time lapse automatically, press again to turn it off. Added bonus, the Session’s small size makes it perfect for filling that stocking by the fireside this holiday season.
Is the photographer in your life ready to upgrade from point and shoots to an entry level DSLR? BuyDig has a great deal on the Canon EOS Rebel T5 which, for a limited time only, comes bundled with a Canon EF 75-300mm lens, Pro .45x wide angle macro lens, Pro 2x telephoto lens converter, a full-sized tripod, an assortment of filters, memory cards, and a deluxe gadget bag among other goodies. If you’re feeling particularly generous, opt instead for this Canon EOS Rebel T5i All Inclusive Bundle which swaps the T5 with its successor the newer T5i. Both cameras feature 18MP CMOS DSLR sensor, but the T5i also sports a newer Digic 5 processor, a higher resolution flip-out touch screen and in-camera HDR.
