    Fisher-Price Kid-Tough See Yourself Camera, $69.99
    Not only is this a real digital camera with tons of bells and whistles (like a backward-rotating lens, so kids can take photos of themselves!), but it's made to withstand anything a toddler/kid can put it through.

  • Digital Time-Lapse Camera, $149 5 of 10
    Digital Time-Lapse Camera, $149
    If you know someone obsessed with the current stop-motion trend (seen here and here), then they need this new digital time-lapse camera. Instead of spending endless hours taking meticulously timed photos with complicated gear setup, this camera does all the work with the same impressive result.
    Buy from Photojojo.
  • The Pocket Pod, $24 6 of 10
    The Pocket Pod, $24
    The perfect gift for an on-the-go photographer! When a bulky tripod won't do, this palm-sized Pocket Pod gives a steady shot without awkward gear. Just attach the Pocket Pod to a camera's tripod mount, retract the cord (which is heigh-adjustable), and lock it in place with the foot pad. Easy, convenient, and affordable.
    Buy from Photojojo.
