I can’t believe this is my last gift guide of 2009! But I did save the best for last. If you are a mom photographer or just love photography you are going to love this gift guide and the giveaway too!
- PhatStraps Fashionable Camera Straps
I just purchased a wrist and neck strap for my camera and loved it. These handmade straps are made with heavy polypropylene core for strength and durability. I purchased the strap with the minky lining and it’s very comfortable around the neck. If you want to get yours for the Holiday delivery be sure you order by Dec 10th, because the straps and the production process is 2 – 3 weeks.
Price Range $29.99 – $59.99
- Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop
The Lightscoop has probably been the most useful photography accessory I purchased this year. For months I was avoiding taking pictures indoors or in low-light because I hated how the pictures would turn out using the pop up flash. The Lightscoop improved my pictures and allowed me to stalk my kids with camera in hand from morning to night. This one will nicely fit into a stocking.
Price: $34.95 or 2 for $69.90

- DSLR Camera Remote for your iPhone or iPod Touch
Of course they would have an app for it! OnSoftware created the DSLR Camera Remote so you can control your Canon or Nikon DSLR with your iPhone or iPod. The pro version allows you to remotely control the camera settings like shutter-speed, aperture, white-balance and much more. My favorite feature is the live view – takes the guess work out of self-portraits.
- Samsung 12MP Dig Camera 4.6X Wide Ang Opt Zm Purple
The most recent point and shoot digital camera by Samsung . The TL225 features LCD screens on the front and back of the camera, making it easy for moms to take “self” portraits of them or take a group picture with the kids. The camera also features a “child mode” which displays an animation to capture the attention of a fidgety child. This 12.2 megapixel camera is also capable of HD video recording. While this isn’t a DSLR everyone still needs a little point and shoot to tote around in their bag.
- Lensbaby Composer
Any photographer will love this selective focus lens. The Lensbaby Composer is a great creative lens with extensions and accessories with no limits except for the photographers own imagination. You can read my complete review, get creative with the lensbaby composer, to see if it’s the perfect gift for the photographer in your life.
- Canon 7D DSLR
I have to admit I was ready to start saving up for the Canon 50D to upgrade my current XS, I figured who needs video on a DSLR? Then I saw the videos from the Saturday Night Live that was shot with a Canon 7D and I was amazed with the quality. Needles to say I just had to put it into the gift guide.
Price: $1699 plus
If a Nikon is more your flavor then the Nikon D300 might be the best fit for you.
