Wireless cable release (external link)

Just bought that one a month ago and I already love it.

Just wondering what do you use it for most? What's your need for wireless shutter release?

Any time I want to shoot something without bumping the camera around, especially long exposures/night shots; I can set the camera up on a tripod in the yard and trigger the shutter when birds are on the feeder, without scaring them off...It also allows for sequence shooting over time, should I get to that.

It's just like having a cable shutter switch, but without having to stand out in the cold when the weather clears up and I want to try some night sky shots. Set up, climb in where the heater is, and shoot away ;)

Instead of wasting your $100 on something you don't really need, instead save it so you are $100 closer to your dream lens.

Otherwise you just buy a room full of worthless junk you use once a year and wonder why other people can afford to get more cameras/lenses

$100 will not get you particularly good or either.

@ lenspens: You gotta get the proper ones from lens pen if not you're gonna have a lot of carbon bits on your lenses and sensor.

Lenspen + microfiber cloth
Sensorklear pen + blower (preferably a good brand: Giottos Rocket Blower?)

@ batteries: Of course it matters if you're looking for total reliability, but you can get proper 3rd party brands such as phottix, camera devices, lenmar (spelling?) etc. A BP-511 batt from phottix cost me just about SGD15 or about USD 10 bucks.

thanks for clarifying about the lenspen, guessing amazon carries the right one i hope. and i am leaning towards lenspen+giottos blower

16GB CF card, on ebay - $38 (includes shipping)

another spare battery for my 5D / 50D - $50

2 extra lens caps for my 24-105 & 100-400 (77mm) - $7 x 2 = $14

WHOOPS - I'm already $2 over my limit, and I haven't even bought the bottle of anti-fog lens cleaning solution yet ($4)

never thought bout anti-fog solution. thanks for advice :)

The Netherlands (AKA Holland). Driving has been taxed to the brim and beyond here... :cry:

damn that is rough dude. everyone is feeling the pain, gas+ 40% school fee increase is major wallet killer for me

You should sign up at B&H for an EDU discount. You'll save a bunch of money on select items and your $100 can go even further. My CF Induro Tripod was $295 instead of $400 with my discount. Just an FYI that may save you some money :D

THIS i never knew about. I will sign up tomorrow, ill take any discount i can :D thanks for the info!

my tripod purchase might be last thing i might buy. right now using a cheap $20 tripod that my parents got years ago for old video camera. It works, but i do wanna invest eventually to a better quality tripod. camera strap-im in maybe area. Right now using a opteka hand strap and love it, but will look into buying a strap the near future. Oem strap was so uncomfortable for me, that i decided just to go with a handstrap

Remember that US gallons are smaller than Imperial gallons (the measure used in Europe)

In the UK, the cost is approx $8.59 per Imperial gallon or $7.15 per US gallon.

Remember this when you moan about gas prices! ;)

I'd get an extra battery for my 50D / 5D. It's simply what I need the most, as these batteries can only be recharged a couple hundred times before they don't hold a charge very well anymore. Heck, for the $100 I could even get two - that would do me for an entire year!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Eleven and a half months between posts. Talk about bringing a dead thread back to life...
That original $100 is not even worth $100 any more!


Canon 40D and more lenses than my wife knows about...
