Irish Christmas Gift Ideas: Stocking filler must haves

Looking for inspiration for this year’s Christmas stockings? We’ve made this blog to try help with some suggestions of what to get your loved ones this holiday season.

We are the only family run specialist photographic store in the west of Ireland. Operating since the late 70’s we are conveniently located on 1 William St, Galway, and have had our new online store recently launched.

There are lots of smaller useful items that we have available that will fit snugly into this year’s Christmas stockings.

  1. Agfa 35mm reusable film camera kit:


Yet, film cameras have made a startling comeback recently. Not just for nostalgic reasons, film is becoming more and more popular among photographers. Many factors have led to the return of film cameras in fashion. Film cameras have a certain quality that digital cameras simply can't match. Film and digital are like a pen and a pencil. You hold them the same way. You can accomplish very similar things with them, but they are completely different tools that are fit for different purposes.

This camera has a cool retro vibe, this analogue is an easy-to-use film camera for general use. The camera has a fixed-focus wide-angle lens, perfect for capturing most well-focused daylight scenes, and the camera also features a built-in flash for night time shooting.

The Agfa 35mm film camera kit comes in 5 different colour options. Each kit contains a pouch for the camera and a roll of 24 exposure 35mm film.

  1. DSLR Remote Switches

For wildlife, night-time and landscape photography, as well as self-portraits, learning how to control your camera remotely is a must.

There are several benefits of using a remote shutter. First, because you're not physically touching the camera, it eliminates any risk of jarring when you trigger the shutter, which makes this a great way to prevent camera shake and get the sharpest pictures. Second, it's also useful for capturing pictures that might be difficult to frame while holding the camera in your hands, including group photos with yourself in the shot or photos of shy animals in the wild. We stock a variety of remote switches for Canon and Nikon DSLR and Mirrorless DSLR cameras.


  1. Galway Camera Shop Gift Vouchers:

Not sure exactly of what you need to get. The photographer you would like to buy for might have an extensive kit and you don’t want to buy something they already have or would have no use for. One of our gift vouchers will give them the choice of product that they feel would suit them best. They have no expiry date, and can be purchased on our new website or in store.
