Let Rangefinder, PDN and DPReview's Christmas Catalog Send You on the Ultimate Shopping Spree

The holidays have come and gone, and here’s what we’re thinking: You’ve treated everybody else, and now maybe it’s time to splurge a little on yourself.

How about a ready-made photography gift guide? Hmm?

0617E83500000514-3295730-image-m-89_1446150191724If you fit into one of the following three categories, we think you’ll be vitally interested in the appended article.

  1. You have one or more fellow-photographers in your life for whom you would like to do some post-Christmas shopping.
  2. You would like to sneak yourself one or two delayed/discounted holiday goodies on the sly, passing it off under the very broad rubric of “using my Christmas money.”
  3. You don’t even feel like hiding it: you just want to acquire some delectable loot.

Christmas_presents_2416800bWell, no matter which of the above categories you’re a part of—and, for the record, let’s just say it’s the first one—here’s a Christmas (er, post-Christmas) shopping bonanza that even Santa’s photography tech dept. couldn’t have assembled unassisted. Fortunately for all of us, Rangefinder (with some helpful input from PDN and DPReview) has been on the job. And we couldn’t be more impressed with the result. This is the holiday photography gift guide that we would love to be able to say we’d put together ourselves.

Screen-Shot-2015-11-24-at-11.48.21-AMAs we flipped through the pages, we were straight up salivating. Every conceivable category of gear drifted before our covetous eyes—including (obviously) a king’s banquet of cameras and lenses, as well as an appreciable number of widgets, gadgets and not a few gizmos…

…camera bags and packs of various descriptions…

…tripods, brackets, lighting setups…

…tablets, notepads and cards (the cyber-kind and the old-skool paper kind)…

…scanners, printers and publishers…

…(you remember that Qromascan thing we made fun of a few months ago? it’s in there)…

…software, subscriptions, services…

…courses, workshops, reference tools…

…(we’re literally having to fan ourselves, the excitement is just that intense)…

…and even a Pocket Monkey. (Y’know, one of those all-purpose tools. TSA approved!)

christmas-giftsSo if you’ve got a well-appointed photographer on your post-Christmas shopping list this year (wink, wink), be assured that Rangefinder’s catalog of doohickeys, doodads, contraptions and contrivances will feature something for even the most focused of viewfinders. It’s the holiday photography gift guide for the shooter who’s got everything.
