Clip-on Fish Eye Lens
Whether you’re looking to spice up your Snapchat or Instagram stories with some unique photography or are just a photographer looking for more versatility in your pocket, a clip-on fish eye lens is a great gift.

Virtual Reality (VR) was big in 2017, and it isn’t slowing down. If you haven’t given it a shot yet, or know someone who’s interested, the Google Cardboard is an inexpensive introduction to the virtual reality landscape. Google Cardboard allows you to easily watch any Cardboard-optimized VR video just by accessing an app on your phone. See the world, play games, and immerse yourself in a whole new world.
Document your adventures from an all-new unobtrusive angle. Snapchat’s Spectacles are sunglasses equipped with a Bluetooth camera that links to your phone, where it sends all of your first person moments. Spectacles allow you to free yourself from your camera’s viewfinder without eliminating your ability to document the things you love doing.
Drones have broken out of their position as ‘new technology’ and become fairly commonplace today, opening up the floodgates for quality, well-built products. Brands like DJI, GoPro, Parrot and more have come out with their own video drones — all built with specifications to fit your needs. One thing all drones have in common is their ability to provide video perspectives previously limited to helicopter rentals outside, and impossible inside.
Amazon’s Echo line of products combine excellent sound quality with one of the most advanced virtual assistants currently available: Alexa. Whether you’re using the minute Echo Dot or the company’s all-new Echo Look, Alexa is available night and day to read the news, share a recipe, update your shopping list, and more.
