    Digital Time-Lapse Camera, $149

  • 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.
