Garmin InReach Mini
It is small enough for a stocking stuffer and light enough that whoever gets this gift this Christmas will enjoy staying connected with this small lightweight unit by Garmin. A smaller and more compact satellite communicator with available two-way messaging and a 24/7 SOS function when combined with an inReach subscription. This device
uses the Iridium® satellite network. Measuring just under 4 inches tall by 2 inches wide, and weighing 3.5 ounces, the inReach Mini can easily be carried in a backpack, boat, plane, or glovebox. No more worrying about spotty coverage or being within range of a cell tower. Never leave your loved ones guessing and worrying. The inReach Mini works anywhere when using the Iridium satellite network.
Stuff this in the stocking of your photographer of the family and watch better lighting transform your holiday photos. Lume Cube’s intelligent Bluetooth capability and the Lume-X app, lets you sync the lights to your iPhone and control your Lume Cube as a flash, video light, or strobe light from as far as 60 feet away. It’s the first-ever off camera flash compatible with the iPhone. In addition to Lume Cube, the Creative Lighting Kit provides a range of gels, diffusers, and mounting options to help you achieve even the most difficult shots.
