If you've got an aspiring photographer or avid Instagrammer in the family, Amazon has a sale on essential camera accessories from Manfrotto, Joby, and Lowepro that would certainly brighten up their Christmas, and maybe even level up their creative outlook.

From tripods to camera backpacks and more, there are enough options to suit a wide variety of cameras and skill sets. For those who shoot with their smartphone, Joby's GripTight GorillaPod Stand is a tripod with nearly universal compatibility with iPhone devices, Samsung Galaxy phones, and almost any other model of smartphone with or without a case. Today, you can grab one for $40, saving nearly $15 off its average price.

Meanwhile, if you're hunting for an option to use with a compact mirrorless camera or something similar, you could opt for a tripod like Joby's GorillaPod 3K Compact Tripod Stand for $33.95. That's over $20 off its average price.

No camera setup is complete without a way to safely transport it, and a durable backpack is one major piece of the puzzle. Amazon's sale has options like the Lowepro ProTactic 450 AW Camera Backpack for $95.99, its lowest price ever by nearly $50. This well-rated bag has 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon and can fit two DSLR cameras inside at once, along with various lenses, a small tripod, a 15-inch laptop, and more. It's even a good fit for the DJI Mavic Pro drone.

Be sure to check out the full sale before it ends, and maybe take a look at Amazon's other Black Friday week deals while you're at it.
