1. Holga iPhone lens

Price: $24.99

As everyone knows, the best camera is the one you have with you, and, for an awful lot of people that will be the built-in one on board the iPhone 4/4S. But there are also ways to jazz up what you have, and the Holga iPhone lens filter kit is a great way to have some fun with your iPhone photography and includes coloured filters, a macro lens, a triple image lens and more.

Likelihood rating: 80% It’s silly, it’s slightly ridiculous looking… but it is cheap… Santa would have to be feeling particularly strict if he denied you this.

2.Leica M9

Leica m9

Price: £4800

Ah Leica, what else could be top of the cool photographers wishlist? Channel the early days of 1950s street photography with the M9, just don’t expect much change from £5,000. If you’re feeling ultra generous you could also chuck in a spare lens, as this is the world’s smallest interchangeable lens full-frame camera.

3.Lo-fi Micro 4/3 lens

Lo fi micro four thirds lens

Price: $90

Sometimes sharp images just don’t have that je nais ses quoi, and you long to get a little bit more arty with your photography. This manual focus lens from PhotoJojo is available for micro four thirds cameras such as the Olympus PEN E-P3 and the Panasonic GH3.

The resulting images are characterised by soft bokeh, vignetting, lens flares, low contrast and shallow depth of field for tilt-shift type photo effects. Cheap in comparison to other micro four thirds lens, this is one to really have fun with and unleash your creativity.

Likelihood rating: 80% – It’s cheap, it’s cheerful, but it is coming all the way from the States, so make sure you bear that in mind.

4.Nikon AW100

Nikon aw100

Price: £220

Nikon recently introduced its first rugged compact camera, and we’ve been impressed with its performance. Tough compacts can sometimes suffer from poor image quality, but the freezeproof, waterproof and dustproof AW100 delivers well, meaning you can concentrate on skiing, snorkelling, throwing yourself around in the mud or just plain clumsiness.

Likelihood rating: 50% – A tricky one to rate, it’s far from the most expensive item on this list, but we still reckon you will have to have been pretty well behaved to be the lucky recipient of one of these on Christmas morning. A promise to take more fun holiday shots may help seal the deal.

5.Lomo Sprocket Rocket

Lomo sprocket rocket

Price: £70

You may get some odd looks when you whip this one out of your bag at the Christmas party, but at least you won’t be shy of a talking point.

Lomo cameras are characterised by crazy light leaks, multiple exposures and other unpredictable effects. Any Lomo will allow you to get creative, but we like the Sprocket Rocket because of the beautiful panoramas it provides, complete with the sprocket holes on the sides of the image.
