The holidays are fast approaching, and you’re still not finished buying all your gifts. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are long gone, but there’s still time to find some great presents for the videographers in your life. Well, you’re in luck, because we’ve put together a list of some of the best gifts for videographers for the upcoming holiday season.
Any good videographer or filmmaker knows how important it is to have good sound on a project. As amazing as cameras have become, the audio quality on their built-in microphones always seems to come up a bit short. That’s why it’s important to always have an external microphone to capture high quality, professional sound. Any videographer would be happy to get one of these great microphone as a gift:
The VXR400 provides high quality audio at an affordable price, a professional microphone packed into a lightweight and compact design. It also has two high resolution condenser capsules that provide natural stereo recording, and a selectable filter to prevent low end noise, such as air conditioners, from ruining your recordings.
If you’re looking to spend a bit more, then the VXR100 Microphone Kit makes for a perfect gift. The microphone provides broadcast quality audio, and the full kit provides you with everything else you’ll ever need for recording professional quality sound to accompany your video: a comfortable handgrip, two windscreens, a stand clamp, a shock mount, and additional cables and adapters.

This is a great gift for videographers and photographers alike, especially if you’re looking for a cute gift for a low price. Making sure you’ve got a level shot is a vital part of making any video. Working with a variety of equipment under a variety of circumstances means it’s not always easy to do that.

It’s the little things that really count, and it’s also the little things that often get overlooked. Anyone who is going to be shooting a lot of video is going to need a lot of storage space in the form of memory cards. This carrying case carries 12 SD memory cards, and with its durable, water resistant casing and carabiner, it’s the perfect way for any videographer to bring their memory cards along anywhere they go.
Here’s a fun fact: sometimes, people want to take videos at night. Another fun fact: at night, it’s dark and difficult to see, especially for a camera. Ready for one last fun fact? Getting a videographer a nice camera light will help them take video at night, and make them very happy this holiday season. So without further ado, here are some great camera lights for that special videographer in your life.
If you’re looking to save a bit, then the MOVO VLL160 is the camera light you’re looking for. It’s slightly smaller and has only 160 LEDs, but it’s still a high quality camera light that gets the job done.
