7 Stocking Stuffers Guaranteed to Put a Smile on Any Photographer’s Face

If you weren’t distracted by these glamorous gams you noticed that they were photographed against a seamless background. Most photo buffs know that seamless paper comes in rolls 9-ft. wide, but many are unaware that narrower stock is available, too. The smaller stuff is easier to transport, store and handle but still big enough for most jobs. You can order Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper 53-in. wide by 36-ft. from B&H for $24.95.


A camera bag is always a welcome gift, and the Slinger Photo Video Bag from Adorama is the perfect accessory for someone who is receiving their first good digital camera. Shown above, model EX160 is available for $24.95. Other Slinger bags and accessories are available at prices for every budget.


For style and beauty at a down-to-earth price, slip your hand into a Cecilia wrist strap. There are several handmade, genuine leather options to choose from and all have that look of quality you might associate with old world craftsmanship. The strap shown above costs $36 and can be ordered from the manufacturer.

A 35mm film camera with a 22mm lens and Fritz the Blitz flash for under a hundred bucks? Yup. Also included is a very fancy sounding name, Lomography La Sardina Capri Bagni di Tiberio Camera with flash. It’s a special order item so you’d better step on it if you don’t want to miss out. Check it on line at B&H where it’s offered for $99.00.


How is this feature-set for around fifty dollars? The SOG S66N-CP PowerAssist Multi-Tool includes 18 essential tools and comes with a nylon sheath for belt or backpack and a limited lifetime warranty. I like it because the cutting blade is easily accessible and all tools have locks for safe usage and storage. $51 at Amazon.


Panasonic 32GB Ultra High Speed Class 10 SD card available directly from Panasonic for $39. This is a short time offer, so if it’s out of stock when you place your order, check your favorite camera shop.


Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 is jam packed with features and offers three operating modes so you’ll feel right at home whether you’re a beginner or an expert. If you’re still limping along with a older version of PS or struggling with a PS clone, take advantage of this $69 limited time offer from Adobe.
