Only 10 days until Christmas! I can not believe how fast this year has gone by. So if you are like me, and you haven’t done any shopping for that special filmmaker/photographer in your life here are a few gift ideas.
The Ultimate Gift…
At its lowest price in history, the Canon 5D MKII has been one of the greatest agents of change in the history of capturing motion. And right now B&H Photo Video is including $720 worth of extras when you buy a 5D only from this link.
These things work with any lens and let you get great macro shots.
This is by far my favorite book for studying cinematography. Great illustrations and much more. Check out my review here.
This is the perfect give for someone getting started with video DSLR shooting. Everything one needs to know to shoot proficiently on a DSLR is in this book. Check out my review here.
Getting into HDSLR shooting can be a little expensive, but if you need a shoulder rig, I have found this one to be a great value for the cost. Check out a review here.
This was my first Camera bag, and I still have it today. Its always traveled with me, and is tough and easy to customize.
Someone gave me one of these last Christmas. Makes for a great pen cup on the desk. They also come in thermos form.
I’ve talked about these lenses here and there, but I still can’t tell you how great a deal they are. You can choose how much you spend on them. From under $50 for a Non-AI 50mm. Make sure you also grab an adapter if you shoot on Canon.
If you have someone really really special on your Christmas list who is interested in getting into HDSLR filming, you might consider getting them a T3i. I consider this camera the best of value compared to all other video DSLRs. Good price, video features, and flip out screen. You can watch my review here.
