My company is having its annual secret santa event, and I chose my coworker who is also a fellow photographer. However, the maximum amount we can spend is $10 (I know it's gonna be hard to find something for that much.)

He collects Sony mirrorless bodies (a5000, NEX-3, some others) and uses legacy lenses from different manufacturers.

Not sure what I can grab, but any recommendations would be appreciated!

Maybe a generic adapter to some strange old lens mount?

All good ideas...maybe even a cheap filter or SD card...all of which he probably has plenty of...but oh well, what can you expect out of $10?

if it's outside sony. id get the lens pen.

cheap filters are really bad as well as cheap sd. at least with a lens pen you can use for cleaning even if he's already have one. a backup is nice.

also a rocket blower is nice.

I use 16GB PNY 90/mbs cards from Amazon, cost me $10 each and they're fantastic ;) Memory is getting cheaper every year.

That said, I would either do a card as suggested, or a nice and simple wrist or neck strap like this

I bought a $15 black leather neck strap for my X-E1 and it's the best thing I've bought for that camera. Super comfortable, stylish and durable.
