[Gear] Fstoppers Holiday Buying Guide

Happy Thanksgiving Fstoppers! I know we all haven't even started carving into our turkeys yet, but I wanted to let you know that I have just completed the Fstoppers 2011 Holiday Buying Guide. I made this guide to help narrow down some of the best ideas for gifts for the photographer or videographer in your life. I also made the guide easy to navigate based on budget by dividing the Guide by price.

Don't have a lot to spend? Not to worry. There are plenty of great gifts under $100. Want to melt their face off with a ridiculous and unexpected gift? Check out the over $500 category.

I will be updating the Buying Guide frequently all the way up until Christmas as more products go on sale or come to my attention. Also, make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to receive quick updates on fire-sale-priced products that won't last long enough to warrant adding them to the Buying Guide.

Happy shopping Fstoppers!

Thanks to everyone on twitter and facebook who helped us put this together. We know a few things we like but your suggestions really made this list complete.

If there is something you think needs to be on this list let us know here in the comments.

Totally. Thanks guys!

Amazing list, but I would definitely pull the Nikon V and J cameras off of it. I work in a camera store and I can tell you that the Nikon cameras are hands down the worst compact SLR I've ever seen. The sensor is also smaller than a 4/3 sensor, making even the Olympus pens a better camera. Anybody who's looking, I strongly suggest you go for the Sony NEX.

Some people like Nikon, others not so much. The new Nikon compact SLR cameras are popular, which is why they make the list. But I totally agree with you, which is why the Sony NEX is also on there :)
