The holiday season is here again So here are my gift picks for 2014.
1. Thinktank Photo Perception bags
First up from our friends over at Thinktank Photo one of their newest bags which I am really excited for is the new perception line up, as you guys who read here regularly know I am a huge fan of Thinktank Photo bags.
The Perception range is specifically aimed at micro four thirds users but will accommodate some smaller DSLR’s from Canon and Nikon and has the ability to carry laptops and tablets. It comes in three different sizes the Perception tablet, 15 & pro and two different colours black and taupe.
Check out the Perception range and all their other great bags at Thinktankphoto.com
2. Wacom Intuos Pro Graphics tablet
Wacom have been at the tablet game for ages and have been consistently bringing us great graphics tablets and the new refreshed Intuos are fantastic, in particular the pro range with build in Wi-Fi and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, it’s incredibly accurate. For me these speed up the work flow through photoshop and lightroom, they do take a little getting used to but for someone who has never used one they will soon get the hang of it and really appreciate the benefits.
Available in three different sizes, for me personally I like the medium but the small works well if you’re struggling for desk space.

3. Rav Power RF-WD01
The Rav Power WD01 wireless file hub is one of my new favourite gadgets and I think it’s a must have in any camera bag. You just never know when this thing will save you, it’s got a built in SD card reader and USB 2.0 port with a massive 3000mAh battery. This thing has enough just to fill even the latest of smart phone
Available in black and white it’s about the same size as one of the bigger smart phones but fits perfectly in a camera bag

4. Japancamerahunter film holders
I am an avid film shooter when I get the time. I particularly like getting away from all the reviewing and digital systems that we all use on a day to day basis. It’s nice to have a little unknown in our lives, if you shoot film chances are you will have seen Bellamy Hunt aka Japancamerahunter online this guy knows his stuff and is a fantastic photographer who likes his film.
These film holders that are available from his site are a must have for film shooters if you have a photographer in your life that still has a love for film trust me they will love these, available in 135(35mm) and 120(mm) and what makes it even better you can buy it with a mystery set of film inside for an extra special gift.

5. Twisted Envy “I shoot people” mug
Another neat little gift for the photographer in your life is the “I shoot people” mug from the guys over at Twisted Envy. These great quality printed mugs are sure to raise a smile and are available in two different “I shoot people” designs they also make some great t-shirts in similar designs.
