Gifts Ideas for the Photographer with a FUJIFILM Giveaway #SJHolidayGifts

Back in the day, I remember my parents having an instant camera at our Christmas gatherings. It was fun to have the ability to snap a picture and within minutes you had a printed copy in hand. These days the Fujifilm INSTAX cameras meet that instant gratification and surefire hit accessory at your next holiday function.
Gift an INSTAX mini 70 to a loved one and it will be the life of the party with instant selfies or a parting gift to the rest of the party-goers.


INSTAX instant cameras


Now available in many flavours — the popular mini 8 in your choice of 7 colours is ideal for the teenager on any list; the newly announced slim, sleek mini 70 in 3 bold shades is the perfect selfie camera for the college/uni crowd; the neo classic mini 90 appeals to the hipster in you, and the wide 300 offers bigger, brighter photos. Also, the instax Share printer is a great smartphone accessory that still has that instax style and is an ideal portable accessory for photographers, events and DIY enthusiasts.


Digital cameras


About 2 years ago I invested in a solid DSLR camera, specifically I wanted to up my game when it came to food photography. It’s been good but I travel alot and by the time I pack all my lenses, camera and charger in the bag, it’s heavy.
I’ve been using my Fujifilm X-A2 Digital Camera since the spring and I often find myself taking my FUJI along, leaving my DSLR at home. Why? Because it’s light, it takes great photos (and selfies) with instant editing options by the turn of a dial and it has it’s own wifi hub for easy transfer and upload to smartphone for sharing on social media no matter where I am.

This year’s new X-T10 is a great camera for almost any photographer with its easy-to-use menus and scene modes. This camera is a step-up from the X-A2 and one I am eager to try out with a few extra features. The ever popular X-T1 is available for avid amateur and pro shooters, and the X-A2 is good for selfies and family chroniclers. The recently announced XF35mmF2.0 R WR lens rounds out our X-mount lens line-up with 19 now on the roadmap. The X-series line-up also includes the perennial favourite X100T and the X30 fixed lens cameras. All Fujifilm X cameras and lenses (except the new 35mmF2) are now sale priced for the holidays.

Waterproof Cameras


The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is the perfect gift for those on your list who plan on hitting the beach this winter. I recently took this camera along on a cruise and loved it. It was easy to secure to my wrist for snorkeling shots in Grand Turk, perfect for video while floating in the the water of Aruba and was resilient from sand to ship.


Capture and share extreme scenes in places a tablet or smartphone can’t go and optically zoom in tight – even for movies. This is our toughest camera yet for extreme weather protection in extreme places, whether sea, sand, snow or time with kids. The FinePix XP80 rugged digital camera is waterproof to 50ft./15m, shockproof from 5.8ft./1.75m, freezeproof to 14°F/-10°C, dustproof** and features a 16.4MP CMOS sensor with a 28-140mm 5x optical zoom lens, Wi-Fi® connectivity for one touch transfer to smartphones and tablets as well as remote capture. It also shoots full HD movies at 1080P, even underwater!
