Manfrotto tripod
This Manfrotto tripod is perfect for food photography. Relatively light weight, with an easy to use ball head. It’s sturdy enough to hold a heavy DSLR & has a quick release plate with safety. While it doesn’t have the smallest minimal height available, at 19 inches, it’s still a good height for table top shots.

    I have a Lilah Snow camera bag (in the Pippi style), but have been hanging out for the new Zoe style since I saw their sneak peak. I have put that on my list this year since they will be out by Christmas. ( ) I would also really like a nice strap for my Canon to replace the black one that came with it, but haven’t quite narrowed down which one I want yet! Great list!

      I have been hoping for a canon 5d3 for Christmas but after looking up the D750 I think I may be a canon trader and switch systems! Thank God I only have one canon prime lens. Now must be the time to switch! Thanks for posting for me to see it!
