December 18, 2010
Here it is, finally, Part II of my affordable holiday gift suggestions for photographers. Gifts for less than $50.00. Sometimes it’s kinda hard for our loved ones who are non photographer to find the suitable gifts for us, so here are some affordable suggestions. Some of these are also on my lists (^_^).
In case you missed Part 1. It’s here.
- Op/Tech 18″ SLR Rainsleeve for Digital & Film Cameras with Lenses up to 7″ Diameter, 18″ Long

- Opteka SR-90 Universal 8″ X 10.5″ Snoot & Reflector for External Camera Flashes
– $12.95 – Just like the “>Honl brand, but way cheaper. – As a reflector, it can be used to bounce and scatter the light output of a flash unit, to provide a more pleasing and even exposure.
