Posted by Alisia Gonzalez on
Father’s day is right around the corner, and we know how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift. This year, gift the father in your life something that will feed his passion for photography. Don’t know where to begin? We’ve got you covered!
1. Camera Strap
For the dad who takes his camera everywhere, a new stylish and comfortable camera strap is a great option. There are many different styles ranging in different price points, but one of our favorites is the ProMaster Odyssey Strap, it is simple, yet comfortable and comes in a few different color options to suite any personality.
For the dad who is looking to expand his photographic skill set with his camera flash, the Rouge Flashbender is an affordable fun tool to add to his collection. The Flashbender is a unique modifier that can be shaped in many different variations, plus there are some awesome affordable add-on's you can purchase to take it a step further.
For the dad who loves to adventure, the Joby Gorilla Pod Tripod is an awesome tool to make sure he gets the shot, no matter what the condition or location. For the more still and steady type, the ProMaster XC525 Tripod is a trusty, stable platform that can also be transformed into a monopod for those times a full tripod might be too much.
4. Used Gear
For the dad who is into film photography or just wants some more equipment for his set up at a good price, swing by our Used Department. We have a circulating collection of film and digital gear ranging from camera bodies, lenses, flashes and even video tech. Each item is quality checked and cleaned before hitting the sales floor and website. You can check out our current sock either in store or online. Don’t forget to stop by the store on July 15th for our Used Gear Swap.
For the dad who already has loads of gear, why not bring it in for a cleaning? Our service department does everything from basic sensor cleaning to full maintenance service. Not sure what your dads gear needs? Just give our service department a call and they will be happy to get you started. You can check out their list of services HERE.
For the dad who is constantly taking photos, a hard drive is a great solution for image storage. G-Technology has a variety of hard drives in many different storage and price options that are compatible with both Mac and PC so you can choose the best option for your dad.
For the dad who loves video, the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 will step up his creative game. This camera offers many awesome features such as 4k in-camera cinematic video, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, plus its 4/3’s mount can use a variety of lenses from Panasonic and Olympus. The possibilities are endless with this camera!
8. Sony a9
For the dad who is all about sports photography, the Sony a9 is the hottest sports camera on the market. This bad boy can shoot up to 20 frames per second with no frame blackout or rolling shutter. There are many lenses and accessories to add on to create the perfect action camera set up.
For the dad who is still a child at heart, DJI recently released two affordable, compact AWESOME drones. The Spark is currently on pre-order starting at $499, it is a super compact quadcopter that is perfect for the beginner who is new to the drone world. The Mavic is a little larger, but still compact and has some advantages over the spark such as 4k video and longer flight time, but neither will disappoint.
Too many awesome ideas to choose from? Let Dad make the final decision with a Precision Camera Gift Card or Gift Certificate.
