For pro­fes­sion­als and ama­teurs, for those who only take pic­tures, and for those who lead social net­works to boot. Gift options for any wal­let for the New Year 2022.


The per­fect gift for a con­tent pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend. This is a mini stu­dio with built-in light­ing that can even be charged from a com­put­er or pow­er bank.

Comes with two back­drops: black and white. The design of the cube is com­pact and fold­able, so it is con­ve­nient to take it with you.

External battery

A great gift not only for the pho­tog­ra­ph­er, but also for each of us. A device that will save in an emer­gency.

For exam­ple, the 10000 mAh HIPER SN10000 exter­nal bat­tery is small in size, so it can even fit in a small hand­bag or pock­et, but with enough charge. It looks styl­ish, there is a charge indi­ca­tor — you will always know exact­ly how many recharges it will last.

The bat­tery from Xiao­mi Red­mi pro­vides a large capac­i­ty — 20000 mAh, as well as two USB‑A, Micro-USB, Type‑C con­nec­tors. This bat­tery has built-in pro­tec­tion against short cir­cuits, surges and pow­er surges, it fights well with over­charg­ing and over­heat­ing. Low price with­out sac­ri­fic­ing qual­i­ty.


This device is very use­ful in both pho­to and video shoot­ing.

Is your pro­fes­sion­al friend in need of a reli­able device? Con­sid­er the Feiyu AK2000C pro­fes­sion­al tri­ax­i­al gim­bal. Light­weight and com­pact, it is easy and con­ve­nient to use with var­i­ous cam­eras.

Suit­able for long expo­sure time-lapse pho­tog­ra­phy, vlogs, and por­trait pho­tog­ra­phy.

Or does your friend often take pic­tures with his phone? Sure­ly he will need an elec­tron­ic sta­bi­liz­er for a smart­phone, for exam­ple, from Hohem iSteadyQ. The sta­bi­liz­er includes a 360-degree rota­tion option, as well as a remote con­trol and a tri­pod — the shots are excel­lent even when shoot­ing inde­pen­dent­ly.

lens toy

Is your pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend a child pho­tog­ra­ph­er? A very cute and inex­pen­sive gift — a toy for the lens. It is often dif­fi­cult to cap­ture the atten­tion and gaze of young mod­els dur­ing a pho­to shoot. So it is a use­ful tool for work­ing with chil­dren. By the way, the atten­tion of pets also attracts.

And if you or your friend are con­nois­seurs of DIY gifts, there is a video on YouTube on how to make a sim­i­lar toy on the lens your­self. In case you need a spe­cif­ic doll (for exam­ple, Spi­der­man or the Hulk), but you do not want to spend time on sewing, then on the Inter­net you can now find ser­vices for mak­ing such toys to order.

Books for photographers

If you know for sure that your friend loves to read and wants to improve their pho­tog­ra­phy skills, the book will be a great gift.

It can be either a book about the his­to­ry of pho­tog­ra­phy and famous pho­tog­ra­phers, or any gift edi­tion.

For exam­ple, the book “Leg­endary Pho­tog­ra­phers of Our Time and Their Mas­ter­pieces” by author Lau­ra Mag­ni will not only expand knowl­edge in this area, but also moti­vate you to great achieve­ments.

Does your friend spe­cial­ize in a par­tic­u­lar area of ​​pho­tog­ra­phy? There are books for such a case, for exam­ple, “The Prac­tice of Wed­ding Pho­tog­ra­phy” by Rober­to Valen­zuela, win­ner of inter­na­tion­al pho­tog­ra­phy awards.

The prac­tice of wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy. Bev­er­ly Hills Pho­tog­ra­pher’s Tech­niques for Cap­tur­ing the Per­fect Shot

Anoth­er ver­sion of the book for the pho­tog­ra­ph­er is “Save the cat! And Oth­er Script­ing Secrets by Blake Sny­der.

“Why would a pho­tog­ra­ph­er need a book on screen­writ­ing?” you ask. This book will be very use­ful to your pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend, who is also active in social net­works, for exam­ple, Insta­gram. Through this book, he learns more about the laws of dra­ma that will come in handy when blog­ging to win over an audi­ence, espe­cial­ly when shoot­ing sto­ries.

Laptop light kit

A gift for blog­gers and those who care about hold­ing cool video con­fer­ences. Con­sid­er, for exam­ple, the Ray­lab RL-LED10 Kit 3200–6500K.

This set con­sists of a light­ing lamp and col­or fil­ters. You can smooth­ly change the pow­er and tem­per­a­ture of the light­ing to cre­ate the per­fect pic­ture. With a built-in bat­tery, the device can work from 2 to 15 hours.

Blogger Kit

Anoth­er set that is suit­able for blog­gers and those who shoot on the phone. The Ray­lab Blog­ger Kit also includes a light and col­or fil­ters, but instead of a brack­et, it comes with a tri­pod with flex­i­ble legs, which can not only be placed on the ground, but also hooked to oth­er sur­faces: a pipe, a chair, etc.


Ide­al as a gift for those who like to shoot at home and want to cre­ate a cozy home stu­dio. Ray­lab Arc­tic white paper back­drop for aes­thet­ic min­i­mal­ist footage and more.

And the Ray­lab RL-BC01 green back­ground for those who want to exper­i­ment with chro­ma key.

Note. The stand is not includ­ed.

Setting the background

We con­tin­ue to cre­ate a home stu­dio. The back­ground, of course, can be tried to install in dif­fer­ent ways: hang it on a clos­et or door, or try to fix it with tape. But it is most con­ve­nient to pur­chase a back­ground set­ting sys­tem.

The Ray­lab B2030E back­drop mount­ing sys­tem is suit­able for fab­ric and oth­er light back­drops up to 3kg. The max­i­mum height is 1.9 meters, so this sys­tem is def­i­nite­ly well suit­ed for home pho­to shoots.

The kit con­sists of two racks, a slid­ing cross­bar and a bag, so it is con­ve­nient to car­ry the sys­tem with you even to nature.

Be sure to pay atten­tion to the max­i­mum pos­si­ble load of the racks.

Camera strap

As a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er, it is impor­tant to be dif­fer­ent and have a per­son­al style. Give your friend an unusu­al cam­era strap.

For exam­ple, here are two belts with draw­ings — with abstrac­tion and geom­e­try — shown in the pho­to below, cost around 450 rubles. Both are suit­able for all brands of dig­i­tal SLR cam­eras.


A use­ful tool, espe­cial­ly for those who make vlogs.

The Boya BY-M1 lava­lier micro­phone pro­vides high-qual­i­ty sound record­ing at an afford­able price. You can use it to record sound on both your cam­era and your smart­phone.

Also includ­ed is a foam pad that pro­tects against wind, inter­fer­ence and extra­ne­ous sounds. The but­ton­hole is con­ve­nient to store and move, as the set also includes a cov­er.

Memory card

A mem­o­ry card is nev­er super­flu­ous: use­ful to a friend whose mem­o­ry cards are always full, or to always have a spare with him.

Which one to choose? It depends on the bud­get, the required speed, the amount of mem­o­ry and some oth­er para­me­ters. In this guide, we just ana­lyze all the char­ac­ter­is­tics of mem­o­ry cards.

For exam­ple, a 64 GB mem­o­ry card from San­Disk is an excel­lent com­bi­na­tion of price and qual­i­ty. For Rs.

This card has stood the test of work­ing in harsh envi­ron­ments. When you pur­chase as a bonus, you get soft­ware that recov­ers acci­den­tal­ly delet­ed pho­tos.

Great for shoot­ing in 4K.

Case for memory cards

A gift for those who like to always keep things in order.

JJC Mem­o­ry Card Water­proof Case holds 12 SD cards and 6 micro SD cards.

For the pros, the Lowe­pro GearUp Mem­o­ry Wal­let 20 is a reli­able and roomy case. You can put up to 12 CF or XQD mem­o­ry cards and 8 SD cards there. Made from durable water repel­lent nylon.

More com­pact and less expen­sive is the £630 Fuji­mi FJ-TRVLR case, which is not infe­ri­or in terms of capac­i­ty: here you can put 12 micro SD cards, 8 SD cards and 4 CF cards.

Each case is per­fect for trav­el to pro­tect your mem­o­ry cards from exter­nal threats: dust, mois­ture and acci­den­tal bumps and drops.

ring lamp

Suit­able for shoot­ing tik-tok and rils, espe­cial­ly for those who blog about make­up: the ring light cre­ates a very beau­ti­ful high­light in the pupils of the eyes.

This ring light is light­weight and portable and comes with a phone hold­er. Can be charged even from a com­put­er, pow­er bank or pow­er adapter.

Photographer Gloves

For those who are ready to shoot in any weath­er con­di­tions.

These gloves from Red­line keep your hands warm when you’re shoot­ing in the cold sea­son. They do not need to be removed every time, because a spe­cial mate­r­i­al is applied to the fin­ger­tips, which allows you to con­trol the touch screen of the phone and cam­era.

Bag for the camera

A use­ful acces­so­ry, espe­cial­ly for those who are often on the road or pre­fer street shoot­ing.

For exam­ple, an Ando­er bag will hold one DSLR, 2 lens­es and acces­sories. But that’s not all: it also has 2 side pock­ets, 1 front zipped pock­et and 2 inside pock­ets, which are con­ve­nient for stor­ing small items: phone, exter­nal bat­tery, mem­o­ry cards and so on.

LED lamp

A lit­tle unex­pect­ed, but use­ful and inter­est­ing gift.

The LED lamp with remote con­trol is great for stu­dio light­ing.

The Fal­con Eyes lamp allows you to change the bright­ness of the light­ing in five steps, and most impor­tant­ly — change col­ors: the gamut offers 5 shades of red ®, green (G) and blue (B) col­ors.

The stan­dard base is suit­able for any con­ven­tion­al fix­tures, even in your home. This is a good way to enliv­en the inte­ri­or of the room and cre­ate the right atmos­phere.

The remote con­trol requires a CR2025 bat­tery, which is includ­ed.

Useful little things

The lens cap hold­er makes a use­ful gift for a friend who always los­es every­thing.

The JJC L‑S2 hold­er is a uni­ver­sal hold­er that is attached with a plas­tic tip to the lens cap, thanks to the adhe­sive lay­er, and with a spe­cial rub­ber band, to the lens itself. Every time your friend removes the lens cap, he will know for sure that it will not get lost any­where.

Anoth­er inex­pen­sive gift option. The white bal­ance map is a use­ful tool for any pho­tog­ra­ph­er. It con­sists of three spec­tral­ly neu­tral maps and helps to fine-tune the bal­ance of dig­i­tal col­ors.

For neat people

The blow­er FJC‑1 is used to remove dust par­ti­cles from the sur­face and inside of the cam­era body. It will also be use­ful for clean­ing oth­er small mech­a­nisms such as watch­es and micro­elec­tron­ics.

And the lens clean­ing pen helps remove dust, lint, fin­ger­prints and smudges from lens­es. The tool con­sists of a brush on one side and a spe­cial self-fill­ing plat­form on the oth­er.
