Oh, for once I have a good answer.... I just bought 2 600EX-RT and a ST-E3-RT, which replace my former speedlight setup.

Loving them so far, although now I'm waiting for Canon to release a small-form-factor flash with RT.

I just bought 600EX #3. Great price at $399 each here in Canada.

What size are you looking for Canon to produce?

I started wondering, aside from a camera/lens, what are POTNers buying to satisfy their photo addication (i.e., phodication).

My most recent photo-realted purchases were, well, rather unusual. The four items I most recently bought that were specifically for photography were:
1. Deer urine
2. A "Rattlin' Antler" bag
3. Tennis balls
4. a spool of string

Deer urine - so that if I encountered a buck that was real cooperative, and allowed me to get close, I might soak a cotton swab with doe urine and toss it towards the deer. This would, if successful, get the buck to perform the Flehmen Response, which is an involuntary reaction they do when they smell nearby doe urine, so that they can better scent the air to determine if the doe is in heat or not. My hope was to get a very close-up image of a buck doing the Flehmen Response, a.k.a. "lip curl".

A rattling antler device so that I could try to imitate the sounds of two bucks fighting (clashing antlers), and thereby call a buck in to me.

Tennis balls and string. Many times when I get within close range of a big buck, he is completely disinterested in me, and continues feeding with his head down, looking at does, etc. It can be very difficult to get the buck to turn his head and give me some eye contact for a good photo. I've tried everything - scrunching up a plastic bag, making grunting noises, clapping my hands, etc. They tire of such sounds almost instantly, and nothing seems to work to get them to turn their heads and look at me. So, I thought that if I tied a tennis ball to some string, I could throw the ball, then slowly retrieve it back to me by pulling the string. I thought that if noises fail to get the buck's interest, then having a moving object would do a better job of getting them to look. Probably would have worked, too, except for one thing . . . I cannot focus, compose, and shoot while pulling a string. Should have thought of that before buying the stuff.

My next purchases will probably be foam board (big thick construction stuff), marine plywood, waterproof glue, camouflage material, and aluminum stock (both angle and flat). This will be for constructing a floating blind, so that I can get right in the water with the birds, muskrats, and beavers I plan to photograph in the late winter/early spring.


"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".

Michael Kors, huh? You go all out, don't you? I would go shopping for my 24/7 model, but she doesn't have a body - just a head and a neck!

Halal, it sounds like your on a spending spree! I can just imagine what will happen if you make the trip into B&H. :)

I made a correction to your post ;):lol:

B&H is only 9.9 miles from my apartment. It's definitely very easy to spend tons of cash there as you all know. I think I'm done with spending... for now! We'll see how long I can hold out before picking up some more filters.

I figured that with the Big Stopper, I would need a remote timer/shutter in order to get longer exposures that are stopped down especially if I'm shooting in bulb.

We'll see how it all goes! I'm definitely excited to play!
