Winky Designs has revamped the style adding Japanese Quartz movement, a comfortable silicone band and CUTE camera icons in place of numerals. Enjoy the portrait mode, landscape mode, and macro mode, right on your wrist.

Camera Suggestions

According to our own amazing photographer and graphic designer, Gedalya Krycer, Nikon and Canon cameras are THE BEST for both a professional and amateur photographer!

The Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR kit is great for a beginner because it includes all the basic accessories in one kit for under $1,000.  The kit contains a camera body, lens, wind angle-telephoto zoom lens, bag, battery, memory card, and much more. The lens enables it to produce amazing imagery for portraits, close-ups, and group shots. The body of the camera is powered by a 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, full HD movie mode with manual exposure, and a 3.0" clear view vari-angle LCD which makes shooting on a tripod much easier.

Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera kit with a deluxe accessory kit, is also ideal for a beginner. The kit includes a camera body, lens, wide angle-mid range zoom lens, bag, memory card, battery grip and much more. It shoots nice portraits and group shots, like the Canon. This Nikon has a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor, HD 1080p video, and can be paired with optional WU-1a wireless mobile adapter. This lets you save photos from the camera right to your phone and even control the camera right form your phone!
