Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019

Father’s Day in the USA is this Sunday, June 16th, and we’ve got the goods to make your photogra-father’s celebration memorable. Surprise him with a full-frame mirrorless camera at a great price or make his life easier with the perfect accessory. Read on for inspiration, or come in to any of our locations for a personal consult from one of our imaging experts. (And, if your father is literarily-minded, don’t forget that it’s also Bloomsday!)

He’ll love a heartfelt metal commemoration of your love.

Starting at $31.99 $19.19 (40% off!)

We’ve got a wide selection of Father’s Day themed templates that will let you creatively express your gratitude to dad on an eye-catching aluminum print: the perfect accent to any wall, desk, shop, or shelf! Through Sunday, you can save 40% on your order with coupon code 833.

Too many photographers live their lives without the benefit of a quality, convenient tripod. If this describes your gift recipient, you need search no further—the choice is clear! Available in red, green, blue, or black, the ProMaster XC522 is the perfect ‘pod for dad’s adventures, whether he likes to show a little flair or blend in with his surroundings. This sturdy little guy features a detachable leg for those times only a monopod is necessary.

Memory cards are cheap, but the memories they contain are irreplaceable. A Rugged Memory Case is tough enough to store and protect all of dad’s memory cards and, more importantly, images. Drops, dirt, and moisture are no match for this case… it even floats! The Rugged Memory Case is available for SD, microSD, XQD, CF, and CFexpress memory cards, so be sure to pick the right flavor. If you’re not sure which card your dad uses, we can help you figure it out.

Let him start the day thinking about his favorite things.

Starting at $14.99 $8.99 (40% off!)

More useful and way more fun than a tie, a Father’s Day mug is a classic gift that never goes out of style. Personalize one this year with sharp-looking templates that will make your family photos pop! Save 40% on Father’s Day mugs with coupon code 833, through June 16th.

The Impulse Accessory Rollup is the right wrap to organize it all! Small accessories like cables, batteries, filters, flash drives, and even backup point & shoots won’t have to flop around in dad’s bag, willy-nilly, and dad won’t have to waste time hunting for them.

Looking to fluff up your gift package? A NiteIze DoohicKey keychain tool is a little tool that goes a long way. I can’t count the number of photo adventures on which I’ve needed a little knife or screwdriver (great for tripods!), and that bottle opener can be pretty handy too.

Preserve something special.

If your dad’s like most dads, he’s probably assembled a few mementos of special moments in life that aren’t being displayed as reverently as they deserve.

Not all cameras come with external battery chargers, but they go a very long way toward keeping you from being stranded, powerless and unable to photograph.

If dad’s pocket-camera needs run more to the rugged side, the Fujifilm XP140 is a great choice. Waterproof to 82ft, shockproof to 5.9ft, freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C), completely dustproof, and with a battery that lasts well over 200 shots, this is one camera he wouldn’t have to worry about.

Whether dad’s never used a digital camera or simply stepping up from a point-and-shoot, the Nikon D3500 DSLR with the AF-P 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G VR lens is an ideal beginner’s kit, especially combined with the classes and one-on-one instruction we provide.

Mirrorless technology grows more and more every year, and Nikon’s fresh entry into the full-frame market is exciting in more ways than one. (Incredible in-body image stabilization and 10-bit N-log video, anyone?) One of the most exciting things about the new Z-mount system is that it’s easier than ever for a lifelong NIKKOR-lens user to take advantage of the latest and greatest. Give dad the best of both worlds with the Nikon Z 6 kit, containing the full-frame mirrorless body, 24-70mm f/4 S lens, and the FTZ adapter, which will let him fully integrate his collection of F-mount lenses. (Lucky for you, the gift-giver: save $450 through Saturday, July 15th!)

Small and light for an effortless carry.

$749.99 $649.99 ($100.00 off!)

For an everyday-carry item like a camera, the smaller and lighter it is the better it will serve someone in life. If your dad would love a lightened load but doesn’t want to give up the true DSLR form factor—optical viewfinder and all—you need look no further to fulfill his dreams than the Canon EOS Rebel SL3. This kit, including the EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens, is the smallest and lightest (hence SL) EOS DSLR to date, without sacrificing any of the image quality found in its fellow Rebels. Dad’s neck will be forever grateful!

The total (tiny) package.

$799.99 $599.99 ($200.00 off!)

This ready-made set makes your gift for dad easy and shooting photos easy for dad! Including the Olympus OM-D E-M10 III, 14-42mm EZ lens, custom-sized bag, and SD card, this is the whole kit and caboodle. The OM-D E-M10 III includes Olympus’s most advanced automatic optimization modes and is lovingly styled after the original, film-fed OM. The 14-42mm EZ lens (easy’s even in the name!) automatically retracts when not in use, so it’s as pocketable as can be. Plenty of dials and a quality electronic viewfinder round out the experience.

An extra-special something…

$3,199.99 $2,599.99 ($600.00 off!)

If a big gift is your goal, it’d be hard to beat a Sony α7R III—and saving $600 makes the proposition all the more attractive!
