27 August 2021

Whether your dad is constantly whipping out the camera or is still figuring out what in the world a selfie is, with Father’s Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to enable your dad’s photographic capabilities. Give your dad a gift he’ll not only cherish but actually be able to use. Ted’s Cameras has something for every kind of father, from the top of the line mirrorless cameras and DSLRs to the latest adventure cameras and photography accessories; Ted’s has a Father’s Day present for your dad

Gifts for the adventurous dad

Binoculars may seem like a niche present. But as well know, dads enjoy nothing more than keeping an eye on things. With a pair of Nikon Aculon 16x50 Binoculars, he’ll be able to keep an eye on a lot more than just the kids in the backyard. Allow him to expand his hobbies into wildlife spotting or bird watching. Ergonomically designed, Nikon Aculon binoculars are incredibly comfortable in hand, right down to its non-slip housing.

If dad enjoys capturing things up close and personal, then a brand new action camera like the GoPro Hero 9 Bundle is sure to bring a smile to dad’s face. In the box, you’ll receive a GoPro Hero 9 Black, a Hard Carrying Case, two rechargeable batteries, and a bunch of extra accessories, including a 32GB Micro SD Card, a Handler Floating grip and a magnetic swivel clip.

Then there’s the fan-favourite DJI Osmo Pocket to consider. Using the smallest 3-axis handheld gimbal that DJI has created yet, the pocket Osmo adjusts for any movements, delivering the smoothest, most cinematic footage that you can imagine.

With interstate travel options becoming more popular, there’s no better partner for your dad’s next road trip than a travel-friendly mirrorless camera. The Canon EOS M50 II Twin Kit is a brilliant option for its versatility and capabilities. As one of the top mirrorless cameras from Canon, you can’t go wrong with the twin kit. Of course, he’ll probably need a lightweight tripod (Vanguard VEO 3 GO Tripod) to take on his adventures. But if your dad is more of a Nikon fan, then the Z50 Twin Kit is your best bet for his Father’s Day present.

Presents for the artistic papa

Think your dad is ready for a proper camera? Then a Mirrorless or DSLR with a sturdy tripod will help take his photography to the next level. For the beginner, you can’t look past the bang-for-your-buck appeal of the Canon EOS 1500D Kit. Making it easier than ever to take that crucial first step into Digital SLR territory, the new EOS 1500D from Canon features a built-in feature guide, helping you become acquainted with your camera and take better photos simultaneously. Paired with an EF-S 18-55mm STD & EF 75-300mm, and your dad will have everything he needs to take his artistic vision further.

Another brilliant option for any artistic papa is the LUMIX G9/12-60mm Kit. Fast to focus and fire, the Lumix G9 will appeal to sports and wildlife shooters, especially any dad that loves taking photos of their kid’s playing Saturday sport.

When it comes to those crucial shots, every photographer can benefit from a tripod. We reckon dad will love the Inca i3530D Tripod for its lightweight and portable design, plus, the three-way pan head lets you follow the action left, right, up or down. Oh, and the quick-release function allows you to go mobile in just seconds, so you’ll be able to keep up on the field.

Technology Father’s Day gifts

When it comes to technology-dads, there are generally two types from what we’ve seen. Those so enthusiastic they’ll tinker with all the latest tech. And those that enjoy the simple life. If your dad is more comfortable taking snaps on his smartphone, we highly recommend grabbing him a mobile lens, like the Kenko Real Pro Combo Clip, to take his smartphone photography to a new level (on a budget). 

For those dads looking to take their already impressive camera set up to the next level, the Atomos Ninja V video monitor is a no-brainer for achieving maximum control over the quality of the videos from any high-resolution camera.

Gift ideas for the nostalgic dad

There was a time before digital cameras that your dad likely remembers. Revive his love for instant cameras with a modern-day film camera like the Kodak M38 35mm. Simple and portable, this reusable 35mm film camera will do wonders for any dad looking to rediscover the wonders of film photography.

If your dad’s more of a polaroid lover, then he’ll be delighted to know that Fujifilm is bringing the nostalgia back with the Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 Kit. This classy, retro-styled camera captures high-quality instant images with automatic exposure modes, as well as its dedicated selfie mode for photos with the whole family on Father’s Day.

Dads who are a stickler for digital but still love the old traditional design will love the Fujifilm X100V compact digital camera for its vintage feel. Retaining its classic rangefinder design, this top compact camera from Fuji features a redesigned 23mm f2 lens and an all-new X-trans 26.1MP sensor that will keep your dad at the top of its class when it comes to photography. The X100V can also capture 4K 30p video, so while it may look old, it certainly makes up for it in the features department.
