The Joby GorillaPod.

The Joby GorillaPod.

IF YOUR beloved's camera supports the Eye-Fi system (check here), you can surprise the lucky one with an Eye-Fi memory card that turns the camera into a wi-fi-connected device. Photos can be transferred wirelessly from the camera to computer, phone or phablet.

The original memory cards are branded Eye-Fi but there are now versions from other makers, such as Toshiba and SanDisk. A four-gigabyte card costs about $60 and an 8GB unit $100.

One of our most useful gadgets is our Joby GorillaPod tripod, with its bendy legs that can be wrapped around any post or rail. Joby also makes a magnetic version of the Gorilla at $29.

Speaking of bags, you can't go past the famous Australian Crumpler collection.

There are nearly 40 bags, pouches, straps and backpacks for cameras, ranging from the $20 Grub compact pouch up to the majestic $330 Bronzed Extravaganza. We use two 4 Million Dollar Home bags for our micro four thirds gear. Any serious photographer with a DSLR needs a remote shutter release, and the Hahnel company makes shutter release cables for all popular brands. They cost about $30 and are sold in most camera shops.
