INTRO

If there's a video movie-maker amongst your family or friends make theirs a camcorder Christmas, here's some gift ideas that we know will be well received

 

TRACKMATE TAPE HEAD CLEANERS 15

Camcorders take a real hammering at this time of year, with all that smoke and damp getting inside the machine's delicate innards; clean up their act with this highly effective range of cleaner cassettes

 

CULLMANN 9151 MIXER MICROPHONE 65

Just the thing for the more ambitious video movie maker, a miniature sound mixer that clips on to a camcorder's accessory shoe; it'll be music to their ears...

 

VIVANCO EM216 STEREO TIE-CLIP MICROPHONE 30

Serious stereo sounds for anyone into making documentary-style productions, when there's a need to get in close to the action

 

BANDRIDGE EH620  HEADPHONE/BOOM MICROPHONE 25

A must for movie-makers who enjoy the sound of their own voice; the smart, hands-free way to add a commentary to a recording

 

LINXS CAMCORDER LEAD KIT 30

It's Christmas, the shops are shut, you can't find the right lead to connect a camcorder to your TV or VCR -- let's hope Santa has got one of these in his sack for you...

 

VIVANCO CAD300 UNIVERSAL DISCHARGER 20

Sooner or later anyone who has a camcorder will suffer from the battery blues; a discharger like this is just the job for reviving tired old nicads, and this one fit's 'em all.

 

HAMA 5629 CONTACT CLEANING BRUSH 5.00

This handy fibre-glass brush is the best way we know of cleaning battery contacts and removing corrosion from metal surfaces; beat's a soap on a rope every time!

 

PENTAX MICROFIBRE  LENS CLEANING CLOTH 2.50

Camcorder lenses are like a magnet for greasy marks and sticky fingers, this high-tech cleaning cloth wipes them away, and it's reusable too.

 

HAMA 5952 COMPRESSED AIR BLOWER 8.81

Blow away the dust and dirt with this eco-friendly, pump-action can of compressed air, it's good exercise as well, an ideal way of burning off those Christmas calories.

 

CAM PLUS SBC 5352 VIDEO BAG 35

This is the sort of thing every camcorder owner would like to find in their stocking, a tough, practical carry-all bag with plenty of compartments and pockets.

 

LASTOLITE MONSOON PORTABLE HIDE 50

Just the thing for anyone interested in wildlife, even if they haven't got a camcorder, and it'll go down a storm at any New Year's fancy dress parties!

 

CAMLINK CLCK2 CLEANING KIT 20

Everything needed to clean off the post Christmas crud, from spilt wine, to bits of walnut shell lodged in the crevices

 

HAMA ACTION COMBI BAG AND TRIPOD 80

After a drop or two of the Christmas spirit this cunning little tripod should come in very handy for helping picture stability, and when things go too far, everything packs away, out of harm's way, in the bag.

 

KEENE NP77H NICAD PACK 35

It may not seem much to you but to a camcorder owner, happiness is a warm, fully-charged, high-capacity, nickel-cadmium battery pack.

 

SIGMA VT18 1.8X TELECONVERTER 90

Another gift idea for anyone interested in wildlife videography, but make sure you find out the size of their lens first.

 

IQ VSMS STEREO MIXER 30

One of the simplest post-production tools, and a great way to liven up dull video movies with some music or commentary. An ideal starting point for anyone who has just taken up the hobby.

 

COKIN CAMCORDER FILTER KIT 28

Filters are a quick and easy way of creating eye-catching visual effects, these are amongst the best, but like any lens add-on, it's important to get the right size.

 

SRB SLIDE COPIER 18

If you know someone who has recently made the transition from stills photography to video this is a great way for them to combine both hobbies

 

SIMA UNIVERSAL VIDEO LIGHT 30

When the lights go down low you don't have to switch off the camcorder, keep the movie going with this handy little clip-on video light.

 

SUBSCRIPTION TO VIDEO CAMERA 22.95

What better way to make sure your generosity is remembered throughout 1994 -- a year's subscription to the UKs leading camcorder magazine.
