We all have a friend who's always recording everything, whether they're constantly updating their Instagram story or making prank videos for their terribly misguided YouTube channel. Well, we've rounded up a bunch of gangbuster deals on gifts for the filmmaker in your life, so you can keep their camera addiction fed 24/7.
If you're shopping for someone who likes to ride their motorcycle down winding mountain roads and backflip out of airplanes (or if that someone is you), check out the 4K Ultra HD Action Cam with Mounts. This camera will record all of your thrilling escapades in the highest resolution available, and the included mounts allow you to attach it to literally anything -- your helmet, your car, your bike, possibly an angry shark.
The camera's waterproof casing lets you record your undersea adventures up to 98 feet below the surface, and its wireless wrist remote allows you to snap photographs from up to 33 feet away, giving you total freedom to compose amazing shots virtually anywhere. Normally the 4K Ultra HD Action Cam retails for $499.99, but right now you can take 86 percent off that price and get one for only $69.99.
The Pakpod Adventure Tripod is a lightweight, weatherproof, Kickstarter-funded tripod that stores easily in your backpack and can be mounted virtually anywhere. And that's all thanks to its terrifying yet undeniably effective spiderlike limbs, which use stabilizing stakes to secure it in place. Position your camera in a tree, on a rocky overhang, or even underwater (provided it's also waterproof), and never worry about the Pakpod slipping or losing its footing ... er, clawing. Plus, it's made out of high-impact ABS plastic and stainless steel, so it'll survive a trip or two off of a snowy bluff, should your picture-taking get a little too adventurous. Normally the Pakpod sells for $99, but you can get one at 30 percent off today and snag it for just $69.
Turn your smartphone into a professional-level camera that Peter Parker would go gaga over with RevolCam. RevolCam includes three high-quality lenses, an adjustable LED light, and a selfie mirror that easily attaches to any smartphone, allowing you instant access to whatever lens and lighting your artistic little heart desires. It's lightweight and comes with a durable carrying case, making it an infinitely more convenient and affordable alternative to lugging around a high-end camera and a briefcase full of huge lenses. The RevolCam normally sells for $59, but you can take 49 percent off plus an additional price drop and get one for $29.99.
The 360fly HD Video Camera lets you capture fully immersive, 360-degree VR-compatible footage and stills on the go, so your friends and family can experience exactly what you did as you rode your motocross bike down that ramp and over that helicopter. You can then easily edit your footage on both your smartphone and your desktop using the included app, which lets you add effects to your videos and share them online. Plus, the 360fly is shockproof, dustproof, and water-resistant, so it can withstand whatever bonkers adventure you decide to take it on. It normally costs $299.99, but right now you can take advantage of a 76% markdown plus an additional price drop and get one for only $69.99.
This lightweight camera connects easily to your iPhone and turns it into an amazing 360 4K VR camera, allowing you to film immaculate footage of your vacation and/or daring prison break. You can use it to live-stream or video chat, allowing your viewers to see absolutely everything going on around you in stunning HD. So in addition to creating unique social media posts, you can enlist your viewers to catch that ghost you're pretty sure is always right behind you. Plus, it features a powerful gyroscope that minimizes shaking and keeps your footage steady, making all your videos look gorgeous and professional. Normally the Insta360 Nano S costs $239, but you can get one now at 16 percent off for just $199.
You can capture amazing footage with the MOZA Mini-Me, and you don't have to be Dr. Evil to do it. This awesome smartphone gimbal keeps your camera stable no matter how terrible you are at holding things still. Plus, the MOZA charges your device while you use it and features eight different cinematic follow modes, keeping your videos smooth even if you're shooting on the back of an ATV running over every rock in the Grand Canyon. There's also a companion app with built-in buttons including a zoom dial and a time-lapse setting. It's the next best thing to bringing a surgical robot along with you as a cameraman. The MOZA Mini-Me usually sells for $109.99, but you can get one at 13 percent off for $94.99.
Look. Your art will never be Starry Night. And that's OK. But grab yourself some of this gear and at least document your travels so you can proudly tell your social media followers you've been to Georgia.
