With a new season in full swing, what better time to spruce up your closet and photo gear with a new bag and tripod? Jo Totes offers a vibrant and fashionable selection of bags for your photo gear that can also be used as everyday tote bags. With eight styles to choose from and tons of colours, there's bound to be a bag for you or that special photographer in your life. The DayTrip is a bite sized tripod that folds down to 9.4" and weighs less than two pounds, making it the perfect tripod to bring on exactly that...a day trip! With this giveaway you can win the DayTrip in whichever of its eight colours you please plus the Jo Totes bag of our choice! Enter for your chance to win below.

MeFOTO got a chance to review the 'Betsy' bag which fits the DayTrip tripod plus a full-body DSLR and extra lense perfectly. My first impression of the bag was how cheerful the rich, yellow hue of the leather was. It comes with velcro inserts that you can adjust to fit your gear in and two different sizes of strap. I chose the shorter one since I prefer to carry my gear under my arm vs across-body.

The Betsy has a separate laptop sleeve and will fit up to a 13" laptop and/or iPad.

The Betsy measures 11" high x 15.5" wide x 4" deep.

There are two front pockets with magnetic closures which comes in handy when you need to get things out quickly. Additionally the front flap is zippered doubling as a super large pocket. 

The Betsy bag is available in four different colours, take a look all Jo Tote's fashionable camera bags here

You can enter the giveaway between now and October 4 and we will announce a winner on Monday, October 7.

Lensbaby's Spark Lens lets you control how much blur you would like in your photos and where. With a focal length of 50mm and focusing range of 13" to infinity you have a wide range of creative options when it comes to shooting. Simply move the adjustable lens in the direction you please to get the desired blur and squeeze/loosen the lens towards or away from you to focus. See the photos below for some examples on how you can use the Spark to enhance the vision for your photos.

Putting the Spark lens together with our MeFOTO DayTrip allows you to stabilize your camera when squeezing the lens to get the correct amount of blur and focus.

A tripod also comes in handy when it comes to longer exposures, macro photography and self-timed photos.

Both are excellent additions to any camera bag and now you have the opportunity to win them both!
