You have just a couple more days to find the best photography stocking stuffer for the photographer in your life.
But, the problem with stocking stuffer ideas for photographers is that a lot of them cost a ton of money. Technically, you can fit multiple cameras into a stocking if you really wanted to.
So, in order to help you find some inexpensive photography gifts, we put together this list of photography stocking stuffer ideas.
MPB Camera Neck Strap
The first photography stocking stuffer on our list is useful for every single photographer, even if they are one of those photographers who already own everything.
Each of the straps are made of nylon and can be used with any camera. They are each $25, making them a useful (and affordable!) stocking stuffer idea for photographers.
MPB MC Circular Polarizer Filter
Next up on our photography stocking stuffer list is MPB’s circular polarizer filter. Polarizing filters aren’t a great gift for photographers who already own a ton of equipment, because they likely have one. But, polarizing filters are great photography gifts for photographers who are just beginning.
Polarizing filters boost contrast in the sky, reduce the appearance of atmospheric haze, and help manage reflections on wet surfaces. So, this is a great photography stocking stuffer for photographers who like to spend a lot of time out in nature taking photos.
MPB has a couple of different polarizing filters, starting at just $14.99.
MPB SDHC 64GB Class 10 Memory Card
The best photography stocking stuffer ideas are items that will definitely get used and no matter how many memory cards a photographer owns, they could use another.
MPB’s 64GB memory card is compatible with SDHC devices and gives you good speed for reading and writing data.
Plus, this memory card is just $25!
Used Memory Card or Reader
If you know a little bit more about what cameras the photographer in your life is shooting with, then you can also buy a used memory card or reader.
MPB collects equipment from other photographers and resells it, so you can find used equipment that's especially cheap, while still being high-end.
Many of their used memory cards and readers are incredibly fast, but you may have to ask for some help from their customer service reps if you aren’t sure about compatibility issues with your favorite photographer’s camera.
Wireless Camera Remote
Camera remotes are another wonderful photography stocking stuffer idea, especially for parents who may be taking up photography to take pictures of their children.
Camera remotes allow you to operate your camera from a distance, so that mom or dad are never left out of the shots because they were behind the camera. Plus, my kiddo loves helping me take family pictures when I give him my wireless camera remote.
MPB’s wireless camera remotes are used, which means they are cheaper as a photography stocking stuffer. You can get a wireless camera remote starting at $30.
Used Battery Grip
While battery grips are a great photography stocking stuffer idea, they are not the best option for non-photographers shopping for photographers because you do need to know a little bit about the cameras someone uses in order to purchase a battery grip that will work for them.
But, if you know what sort of camera your photographer shoots with, MPB has used battery grips from all of the top brands like Canon, Fuji, and Sony.
Whereas a new camera grip can cost hundreds of dollars, MPB’s cheapest is just $6.
PocketWizard Plus III
The PocketWizard Plus III helps photographers to control their lighting or shoot from afar.
For example, it acts as a remote flash trigger and wireless remote in one. It’s also simple enough for photographers who haven’t had the chance to use a transceiver before.
While the PocketWizard Plus III typically costs hundreds, the one available on MPB right now costs just $75. It is the perfect cheap photography gift.
