Who doesn’t love new items no matter if you are a photographer or not everyone loves getting new things. Since christmas is ending and my birthday is vastly approaching I figured I would post some really interesting gadgets/gifts that I am in love with. Personally I love new camera related gifts, it is amazing what is available now-a-days.
For Christmas my grandparents bought me a Nikon camera lens mugs. Yes, a lens mug. It is one of the coolest things I know I probably even sound like a complete nerd right now but it is true. The first time I had seen one of these was at school and a teacher was carrying a lens (or what all of us students thought was a lens) then all of a sudden he puts his lens to his mouth and everyone in the class began to freak out. Little did he know none of us knew what a lens mug was and then he explained. I knew I needed one! Luckily I got one and I can’t wait to us it and fool everyone!
A few days before Christmas my brother told me that my present may not be here in time for christmas and I told him that was fine. Was he excited to have me see what he got me though, I think he was more excited then myself. He even wanted me to guess what he got me and he gave me hints like; it was photo related but not photography gear. So I began to rack my brain what would it be. I actually said to him is it a Nikon Lens Mug? Nope, little did I know in his head he was freaking out thinking I was going to guess what he actually got me. I couldn’t figure it out. To make a long story short it ended up arriving on Christmas Eve and he made me open it that night. It was Nikon Lens Shot Glasses, a set of three. It was hilarious, now I’m not a drinking but it was great and he thought it was so funny.
Something I don’t own but I wish I did because it is one of the greatest creations ever! When I begin a shoot I set everything up and grab my camera and take off the lens cap. But where do I place the lens cap? Pretty much anywhere that is free, if I have pockets I usually will place them there but if I don’t I will place it in my purse or my camera bag, anywhere available but the problem is, I forget where I place it and at the end of a shoot I begin to freak out where I put it. This is great and I really need it so I can always put my lens cap on it and never forget where I put it. A lens cap strap holder!
The last thing that I received for Christmas is a new camera strap. I’m a girl who loves to accesorize. So I needed a new stylish strap. For those of you who don;t know me I am obsessed with the color neon green and zebra print. So of course I needed a strap to be like that. I searched everywhere for a camera strap that was a strap to a strap cover because that has velcro and I knew that would stick to my hair. I finally founded one and asked my mother for it for Christmas and she got me exactly what I wanted! It was great and I love it!
