If your budget is over $500, you have a heck of a lot of awesome at your disposal. Camera equipment in general is pricey, but when you've got it to spend, you can really nab some nice stuff. We've compiled the absolute cream of the crop gift ideas that will set you back a lot of dough, but will not fail to impress come Christmas morning.

The Canon T4i, which is a good beginner camera as well as a solid second video camera option, is on sale for $600 with a lens and a bag, one of the lowest prices I've seen on this camera yet. Also the Rokinon 85mm f/1.4, Sony memory cards, and a Lumix digital body round out more deals of the day.
