Tough Camera 

Olympus Tough TG-860

If the photographer in your life will be climbing mountains, surfing or visiting cold climates, just to name a few extreme activities, then a tough camera may be something they find particularly useful. This style of camera is often waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof which makes them ideal for underwater, adventure and travel photography. If we were to list all that are available this list would be rather long so instead, we recommend you check out our 'top ten best waterproof tough cameras' where the Olympus Tough TG-5 is sitting in the 'number 1' spot.

Drones 

DJI Phantom 4

 

Love them or hate them, drones can actually be a rather useful piece of kit for someone who's a fan of adventure and travel photography. They can fly out to see to capture shots of a shipwreck out of reach and some can even follow you while you explore your surroundings, taking photos/video without you telling it to. There are some really inexpensive drones available but those interested in capturing 4k video footage and images with higher resolution, it's worth spending a bit more money.

Premium Camera Bag

Gillis Trafalgar Satchel

If you have a little more cash to flash then a premium camera bag may be something you consider to be the perfect gift. Constructed from better materials, and some even by hand, premium camera bags will keep kit safe while offering a little bit of style at the same time. We recently took a look at some of the most popular premium camera bags on the market so if you do want to purchase a Billingham or Mooli, this guide is for you.
