6. Understanding Exposure, Fourth Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera ($14.84)
Another gift for your gaga-over-pictures friends. This revised book by Bryan Peterson demystifies the complex concepts of exposure in photography, allowing readers to capture the images they want.
“If you know how a camera works, this opens things up even more, explaining how aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are mathematically linked. I understood what shutter speeds are, how they worked, and how to use them.
But why are the core rates always in the order of; 1,2,4,8, 15, 30, 60, 125, 500, 1000? Why do some newer cameras include more numbers? Why are F stops numbers graduated the way they are? 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, 22?
The same can be asked about ISO! If you are a photographer that feels comfortable using manual mode, and you don’t know the answers to these questions ( that was me! ). The AHA! moments within this book that are simply explained will open your mind to more freedom in expression and confidence, this pure knowledge brings to your brains table. (was that even a proper sentence?) Thanks Bryan for the quick course in logic!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“Amazed by technology, this is a great device and works great with direct sunlight. If you’re using it for an iPhone, make sure you have an iPhone USB cable. The device doesn’t store power. Therefore you’ll need a separate device for storage.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
4. Lens Cap Bundle ($7.49)
This is a lens cap safety kit for the DSLR cameras including Nikon, Sony, Canon. These covers protect your lens from water, dust and scratches.

The bundle comes with four lens caps as well as four keepers to ensure they don’t get lost. They are made sturdy from premium-quality high impact plastic. Includes a free microfibre cleaning cloth.
“I have a Canon Rebel and manage to lose the lens cap at least once a year. I assumed tourist locations would sell lens caps but have been sadly mistaken. Thus, my camera lens has suffered a few smudges and minor scratches. This is an excellent package because you get four lens caps and the option to attach a leash holding the cap to the camera. Hopefully, I will be set for the next few years. Also – the package came quickly to my door.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Professional Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras ($11.99)
This is a professional cleaning kit for DSLR cameras. The kit includes:
- Altura Photo Lens Cleaner 2 oz. Bottle
- Lens Cleaning Pen
- Lens Brush
- Air Blower Cleaner
- Altura Photo 50 Sheets Camera Cleaning Tissue Paper
- 3 Pack Oversize and Original Microfibers Cleaning Cloths
The lens cleaner is made odour, alcohol and ammonia free and the specially formulated lens solution are safe for use on all sensitive optical surfaces including LCD screens. Not designed to clean camera sensors. The microfibre cloth leaves zero scratches, streaks and marks. Will work safely on all lenses.
“This kit give you everything you need to clean your camera. This is defiantly worth the money. The cleaning pen alone for sells for $6-$8! So This is a steal at $9 for the whole kit! The air blower works perfectly and blows out a very nice amount of air for removing dust and debris from the camera and lens. The Cleaning brush is a nice size however I have noticed that some of the bristles tend to fall off from time to time, which isn’t that big of a deal because the air blower is included. The Spray Bottle is a nice size as well and is very useful to hold your cleaning fluid, and when sprayed it is a fine mist, not a sharp stream. However, I would advise you to spray on one of the cleaning cloths and not directly on the lens so that you don’t accidentally fog your lens. They also give you four microfiber cleaning cloths one attached to a keychain. They are very soft and perfect for removing streaks from your lens and does not cause any scratches to your lens. The pen is also very handy, its small and the brush is soft and retractable, the bristles seem to be better attached and do not fall out like the other brush that is included, it also has a double sided soft pad (one triangle-tip and one larger round disk)to remove fingerprints and more serious dirt but is still very gentle and does not damage your lens. All in all, I am very pleased with this kit and would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice cleaning kit for their camera. Also, the shipping was very fast (2 days) from order date.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
