35 Of The Best Photography Gifts, By Budget (2023)

Photographers aren’t easy people to shop for… and it doesn’t help that most “gift guides” online are generic, copy-paste articles written by non-photographers.

Although 61-megapixel BSI sensor is the same as the previous generation, there are lots of other improvements behind the scenes. Let’s take a look!
