Superstar DSLR’s

Remember the first DSLRs? Unlike the first clunky and expensive models, today’s DSLRs are versatile, more compact, easy to use and come at prices your wallet will agree with. Best of all, many of them come ready to go, with memory cards, cleaning kits and even travel bags. Whether it’s the Canon T3i, Nikon D5200 or D3200, these are some of the best cameras for the future pro on your list.

Going Mirrorless

Mirrorless cameras were all the rage this year. In many cases, they offered a compact and intuitive alternative to DSLR’s with the same level of picture and video quality. The Sony NEX-6 (with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens) is just one example of thes incredible new cameras out there – at the perfect price.

Accessories Complete the Picture 

There are hundreds of ways to round out the perfect setup. Let them shoot to their heart’s content with the Acumem 32GB  SDHC US-1 memory card or help them set up the perfect shot in any environment with the Road Trip Travel Tripod Kit from Mefoto.

You can also help them bring their vision to life with the Intuos Pro Medium tablet from Wacom, which lets them touch up, enhance or just do anything their imagination comes up with. When it’s all said and done, they can create vibrant, beautiful prints with the Stylus Photo R2000 printer from Epson. Because maybe those brilliant shots they took would make the perfect gift – for a holiday hero.
