Your dad taught you all you know about the outdoors.
What better nod to all the campfire fun the two of you had than the Twig Pod?

Taking your camera to the beach is like giving your cat a bath: it gets finicky when wet.
Don’t let your camera short-out (or claw you in the face)!
Presenting your new swimming buddy: the Underwater Digi Cam, an underwater digital camera that shoots photo and video.
Dunk this digi cam as deep as 100 feet for ethereal underwater scenes Cousteau could only dream of. Shooting through a plastic lens, you’ll get that classic analog look reminiscent of film while fitting up to 90 photos in one outing!
It’s so much more than just a pool-adventuring snapper. It’s a sturdy, affordable digital camera you can toss into the ocean or even the Bering Strait!

What if we told you Minox, the guys who made spy cameras for the CIA in the 1940s, were still designing sneaky little photo-makers?
Indeed they are, and get ready to fall in love with their latest, a Leica M3 look-alike: the Classic Mini Digital Camera.
It’s a 2″x3″ mini digital camera that hails from the days of secret spy missions, vocoders, and dudes named Boris.
Plus, make sure to scope out our newest and easiest photo-holder yet, the Snapshot Dot. Minimal in design, these hip lil’ dots let your photos shine by giving you a clean and colorful way to show them off.
p.s. You like cameras right? Right! Think you could answer these two questions for us? It’d mean the world.
|The Classic Mini Digital Camera
Made by the same company who designed spy cameras for the CIA in the ’40s, the Classic Mini Digital Camera is a tiny digital camera with dapper analog looks.
This 2″x3″ digi cam is a finely detailed replica of the Leica M3 right down to the film advance lever and German-engineered glass lens.
It wears a clever disguise: Analog on the outside, digital on the inside — how can you resist?

Instead of giving your photos an acupuncture session (pins=ouch), try a kinder option.
With a gentle grip, these hip 2″ silicone dots sit flat on your desk, holding your prints upright for a clean and colorful display.
Switching photos is extra easy — just slip prints in and out, all the while keeping them free from rips and bends.
Your typical film roll will hold 12, 24, or a whopping 36 exposures.
What if we told you we managed to get 1,000 photos all onto one roll?
True story! The USB Film Roll is a 4GB USB drive cleverly dressed up in a recycled film canister.
Instead of getting tossed, these canisters get to fulfill their photo geek destiny by metamorphosing into glorious photo file-holding gizmos.
Whether you hand ‘em out to clients or snap one into own your computer’s USB, your analog-digi prestige will certainly be propelled to levels not yet experienced by mankind.

Our Rare Film Gift Pack is back, rarer and filmier than ever!
In your pack, you’ll get 3 hard-to-find, imported 35mm films:
One high-speed color film, one sepia-toned monochrome, and a whole new film, the Revolog Kolor 400 film.
This rainbowlicious film came to be when a couple of photo students “hacked” their own film by carefully unraveling each roll and pre-exposing their film to colored lights (and yes, they’re totally just as cool as the kids in the movie Hackers).
It’s a dreamy roll that adds a gorgeous range of pink, green, blue, and yellow hues to every shot!
Half b-days, quarter b-days…who says you have to wait for your actual birthday to get yourself a gift?
