Foldio Pop-up Studio

The mini portable photographic studio is perfect for product shots, providing a smooth and diffused background. The Foldio collapses to just over half an inch thick and expands to a 10 inch cube. It is also available with LED lights which are powered by a 9v battery.

Lens Band

The lens band is a very simple solution to what is possibly one of the most common problems – lens creep. With some of the heavier lenses you have probably noticed the lens sliding while your lens is angled pointing upwards or downwards. By sliding the lens band over the zoom ring of the lens on one side and stretched over the non-moving part of the lens on the other side, lens creep is mitigated. The lens band is one of those camera accessories that will leave you wondering how you managed with out it.

Spydercheckr Colour Calibrator

Struggling with white balance no longer needs to be a painful exercise. The Spyderchekr has been designed to help photographers calibrate their white balance in-camera at the beginning of the capture stage. This this process allows photographers to achieve consistent and accurate colour reproductions.

Viola! Your Christmas wish list is now complete with all the must have gadgets for photographers that you never knew you needed.
