The Gizomos GP-06ST mini table top tripod is ideal for the photographer or videographer that is seeking for sturdy support while they travel, but won’t want to be weighed down by heavy and cumbersome gear. Although compact enough to fit into bags and backpacks, this mini tripod features an impressive 3KG payload. This means it is not only suitable for compact digital cameras and smartphones, but also larger more advanced cameras.


To help users find interesting and intricate angles, the legs of the Gizomos GP-06ST mini table top tripod can be adjusted to 2 different leg angles, while the included ball head allows you to quickly change the framing of your shots. Perfect for content creators who prefer to stick to their smartphones, this accessory includes a built-in smartphone clamp to keep it safe and secure.



No photography kit is complete without a humble tripod. This Inca i330G tripod is a great option for beginners - it is lightweight and budget-friendly, but it still helps users to achieve their goal of sharp and blur-free images.


With its 3KG payload, this Inca tripod is suitable for entry-level Mirrorless and DSLR kits. It features a fast and easy-to-use flip leg lock system, so the tripod can go from its compact closed size to its maximum height of 133cm within moments. When not in use, the Inca i330G tripod closes down to less than 50cm, so it easily will easily fit into a carry-on bag as you head to your next destination.

Another handy cleaning kit for our list, the Hahnel 6 in 1 travel cleaning kit is, as the name suggests, a great Christmas gift for the travelling photographer. All of the cleaning accessories in this kit are kept in one easy, compact carry case. The case itself is waterproof, so there’s little risk of the items within being damaged by the elements. At the top of the travel-friendly case is a carabiner for quickly and securely attaching the kit to a backpack, so it’s always at the ready.

The 6 cleaning items inside are suitable for both wet and dry cleaning of stubborn dirt and smudges, and can be used for the clean and care of Binoculars, LCD screens and electronic devices - not just camera gear!



Most of us can't go far from home these days without a multitude of digital devices to help us carry out our essential tasks. With all these devices, comes a huge swag of chargers and cables, which are certainly not convenient for travel.


The Hahnel Duo Travel charger solves this issue by taking up the place of some of these chargers and allowing users to travel light. This powerful charger can charge 2 devices simultaneously, which is great for those times when access to power is limited. Good for tablets, smartphones, iPads and more, this handy accessory is compatible with major brands and includes worldwide interchangeable plugs to keep busy jet-setters powered up.
