Cokin Land­scape Kit 1

Com­plete fil­ter kit to get you started

£50, $67 www.cokin.co.uk

This fil­ter set is de­signed for any­one with a pas­sion for cap­tur­ing land­scapes. It con­tains almost ev­ery­thing you need, in­clud­ing three 84mm P-Type rec­tan­gu­lar fil­ters (a blue-to-clear fil­ter to in­ten­sify blue skies, a grad­u­ated warm­ing one to boost sun­sets and a con­ven­tional warm­ing fil­ter), and a holder that at­taches to your lens. An adapter ring to fit your lens is the only ex­tra you’ll need to buy.

La­Cie Rugged Thun­der­bolt 1TB

Tough por­ta­ble hard drive to keep your images safe

£149, $199 www.la­cie.com

With its orange rub­berised case this top hard drive is hard to miss. Fea­tur­ing Thun­der­bolt con­nec­tiv­ity and a USB3 socket, it boasts data trans­fer times of up to 110MB per sec­ond. It comes as 1TB and 2TB con­ven­tional drives, and 250GB and 500GB SSD mod­els – but at £379/$500, the lat­ter would be a spe­cial gift in­deed!

Trig­ger­trap Mo­bile Don­gle Kit

A cable re­lease with some very big dif­fer­ences

£23, $40 www.cokin.co.uk

Trig­ger­trap is ba­si­cally a wire that con­nects your cam­era to your smart­phone. An app then en­ables you to fire the shut­ter with your phone. It uses many of your phone’s fea­tures to add func­tion­al­ity, such as trig­ger­ing the shut­ter when it hears a sound, feels mo­tion or sees a num­ber of faces. It’s a great way to cap­ture the fes­tive fun.

I’m sure there’s a cam­era in my drink!

£10, $16 www.big­fanof­photo.com

The hol­i­days are the ideal time to meet up with fam­ily and friends. To help get the party well on its way, this sil­i­con ice tray cre­ates per­fectly formed ice cam­era bod­ies and lenses. If that isn’t enough for you, dip the end of one of the ice lenses into some wa­ter and at­tach it to the ice cam­era body, then pop them back into the freezer for ten min­utes to cre­ate the per­fect minia­ture cam­era pop­si­cle!
