    Great list, Richard! My gf bought me the F-stop watch for my birthday last week so that was funny to see it on this list.

    Love the cufflinks! I just wanted to add another one to the gift list and tell you about our awesome gadget that is for photographers of every level. :) The Hufa Holder lens cap clip was designed by photographers after they had, like many other photographers do, lost a TON of lens caps. The nifty little device just clips right on your strap and keeps your cap in place while you’re shooting! Turns out, we lose a whole lot less lens caps this way! :) This also works no matter what camera you are using. Here is a video for you to check it out Thanks again for sharing your ideas! Hope you’ll check out our gadget when you get a chance.

    Have a great day,
