  • Thinktank Photo Retrospective 7

    Gift: Thinktank Photo Retrospective 7

    Price: $162.75

    The Retrospective 7 carry case from Thinktank Photo is a handy gift for the photographer who has delicate gear to protect -- but doesn't want to advertize to the world what they're carrying. 

    Designed to carry and protect a DSLR, the low-key bag also has a rear slot which fits an iPad or 11-inch MacBook Air, a padded shoulder strap and can accommodate two or three lenses.

    Price: $99.00

    The pen and touch from Intuos is a smart graphics tablet device, allowing you to doodle, draw, edit photos and create images using digital versions of thousands of traditional brushes and pencils -- a great distraction from our busy lives.

    There is a lot of software on the market which can be used in conjunction with graphics tablets -- and in the Intuos model, full versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, Autodesk Sketchbook Express, Artrage 3 Studio and Nik Color Efex are included.
