Christmas gift ideas


Christmas will soon be here, presents to buy. But what can you buy the photographer in your household? Here’s a few gift Ideas to start you off.

The Panasonic LX7

The LX7 is a great piece of kit in a very compact body. The addition of the manual aperture ring since the previous model gives it an added edge over many rivals, as does the Leica lens and zippy auto focus.
While cameras such as the RX100 may have a slight edge in terms of sensor size and performance in low light, the LX7 makes up for this thanks to its price, ease of use and stunning image quality that’s still far superior to most compacts on the market. Not only is it an excellent back-up snapper for pros, it also makes it easy for amateurs to get fantastic shots.

Joby UltraFit Sling Strap

Joby UltraFit Sling Strap
The Joby team conducted extensive research to pinpoint exactly how camera straps should fit and move on the body – recognising the very different body shapes of men and women and the different design elements required for both functionality and comfort.

In both versions the Joby SpeedCinch™ system secures both camera and strap close to the body, freeing up the photographers hands and ensuring the camera is secure while shooting in busy environments.

When the camera is required, the system automatically extends the strap length in one fluid and fast motion – allowing the photographer to bring the camera to eye level in one easy movement – never missing a shot.
For ultimate safety and security, both versions of the Joby UltraFit Sling Strap use premium materials including stainless steel and glass-filled nylon plastic – providing super durability and a secure connection via a ¼ – 20” accessory thread mount.
