Perfect gifts for Father’s Day

The Crumpler Muffin Top is a great camera bag for active photographers.

It’s Father’s Day on Sunday and if you’ve left it late to buy a present for your dad, there’s still time to snap up a bargain.

If your dad’s a photo buff then you’ll find gifts to suit all budgets at Castle Cameras. While a brand new DSLR might be slightly out of many people’s price range, unless there are several of you clubbing together or you have a large budget, there are many other options, including cases, lenses, prints and other camera accessories.

For dads who enjoy wildlife photography and like uploading their images while out and about, a rucksack such as the Crumpler Muffin Top is an excellent choice. The bag has ample space for a laptop, camera, lenses and range of accessories and is made from 1000d Chicken Tex Supreme fabric. Smart, black and compact, the rucksack also has a handy organiser compartment to ensure everything is kept where it’s expected to be!

Is your dad active, with lots of hobbies? Then the KATA DR-466i is a good choice of gift. This rucksack has ample space for an SLR, up to four lenses and a laptop. There’s also a side pocket designed to hold a tripod, which has been improved from predecessor models.

The really good thing about this bag is that it’s easily convertable into a day-to-day rucksack – the tripod pocket and camera holding section are removable, as is the zippered divider.

Prints are another popular gift idea and Castle Cameras offer a large range of printing services, from 30-minute standard prints to deluxe stylish black and white prints, CDs of image and posters or canvas prints. A family portrait or one of his photos blown up to poster size make a gift that will be treasured for years to come.

Castle Cameras also have a large range of display options, from photo cube frames to photograph albums.

Whether your dad’s a serious photographer or just starting out, you’re sure to find the perfect gift by visiting our online store.
