The Great WebShop BrainSwap, Part 1

We’re teaming up with some of our very favorite shops on the web to help you, faithful readers, with your holiday shopping!

These folks have very good taste. So, we decided to take advantage of their expertise and asked them to pick out their faves from the Photojojo shop to share with you.

We’d have chosen ourselves, but that’d be like choosing your favorite from among your very own kids. That is to say… totally illegal. (right?)

Now, scroll-along to see what the crews from Threadless and Poketo like most.

I’ve been on the lookout for a simple, but charming, camera strap. The Toyko Dreamer Strap fits the bill nicely with its clean and delightful design.
The Tokyo Dreamer Strap
$20 at the Photojojo Store

Saving photo opportunities from dead battery hell. What’s not to love? I tend to find myself in a pickle quite often when I see the red bar on my iPhone appear (and drain rapidly) as I continue to ignore its nagging warning. Now I truly can ignore this warning and capture away.

My love for photos is only rivaled by animals, so the combination of the two together = perfection! I love its quirky appeal and am appreciative of the extra company while editing into the wee hours of the night.
Animag Photo Stand
$9 at the Photojojo Store

Most genius ideas are simple at heart and this is one of them. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I always have a tendency to tilt my photos by an angle or two. Au revoir, crooked photos!
The Level Camera Cube

I’m from Hawaii so naturally I have a love for the ocean. I love taking photos with my iPhone and this would be the perfect accessory for my next trip home!

The weather may have decidedly taken a turn for the grey, but our new Digital Time-Lapse Camera doesn’t mind. It wears a weather resistent jacket that lets it shoot time-lapse videos no matter the atmospheric conditions.

It’s true, the temperature might drop, but your camera sure won’t. The Three Way Camera Strap offers three camera slingin’ styles from one super-sturdy strap.

The Digital Holga Lens

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

“Abracadabra” and “shazam” are decent magic words and all, but we think “Photojojo” works just as well. Why, you ask?

Because we’ve figured out how to transmogrify your DSLR into a Holga, instantly!

We didn’t even have to make deals with dark powers: we just used the Digital Holga Lens.

Mount this plastic lens right onto your camera body and start snapping away! Your photos will have that vignetted lo-fi charm for which Holgas are so well known. (Pssst: if your DSLR shoots video too, you’ve got a Holga home movie machine on your hands).

Go ahead, make some magic without having to lift a wand.

Will These 5 Robot Photographers Replace Human Photogs as We Know It?

photoBot photo by Claudine Quinn

No, they won’t.

But they’ll take over when you want to take a break from shooting at a party or want to document your day without having to stop what you’re doing!

Meet the anthropomorphic party cameras:

  • photoBot is a ‘bot that uses an ultrasonic ranger to detect where people are in a room. Like an adorable T2, he detects people to shoot and shoots them.
  • NAO is a humanoid robot that can shoot based off the rule of thirds and the golden ratio. It actually learned what makes a good photo based on these two photography principles.

These robo-photographers are meant to be worn, so they’ll document your day from your perspective:

  • The Autographer has 5 sensors that use a super smart algorithm that decides when it’s just the right moment to take a photo.
  • The Memoto comes with no buttons because it simply shoots a photo every 30 seconds. Similar to the Autographer, you clip it on and have your day documented!

Other robo-cameras of note are Sony’s Party-Shot camera that sits on a base and takes photos of your party for you and the Instaprint, a little box that prints out Instagram photos based on hashtags.

It’ll be a while before humans are completely replaced with robots, but we wouldn’t mind handing over the duties when our hands are full. How about you?
