As in what kit and consumables have you bought in the last few weeks for your photography business ?

Ive just ordered a Freecom external lightscribe DVD\CD burner so that we can label our disks in a nice way. Got an external one so we can use it on my mac laptop, windows desktops or my mates Mac desktop, whichevers most convinient

Another 30D so we have 5 bodies between the two of us, cos I hate changing lenses at weddings and will be using a prime on one body whilst my 17-55 is is being fixored.

A dozen 2 CD/DVD display cases with picture insert, a dozen little 6 x 4 stick in books for our "photos on the day" and a 10 x 8 book I may use as a mini portfolio.

And a House :) ... that has a very nice downstairs room that joins onto the double garage that will be my nice home office when if all goes to plan .. then were gonna convery the garage or half the garage to a viewing area .. tahts the plan anyway.

All in all a bloomin expensive week but everything we have done is pushing us in the right direction I hope.

A new 30D + grip + extra bag... I wanted to wait and do with my XT's a bit longer, but they are giving me the ERR99 problem every once in a while... Now I'll have 3 bodies, hope that's got me covered for a little while!

Nice one matey, but I reckon once you have a 30D you will want to trade your 2 XT's for more 30D's :) thats what happened to me anyway ... was very happy with my XT..... right upto getting a 30D.... let us know how you think they compare when yah get em eh !

I actually haven't bought anything in a long time, for once!!! I am almost proud of myself for being practical! I had a serious urge to go the 5D route earlier this year, but so far have resisted.
I seriously plan on getting a 500D closeup filter soon though, and I'd love some pocket wizards for some better off camera lighting options, but other than that, I am 'ok'.

...been buying WAY too much. I think I spent all my (anticipated) profits on this one lot!

I have 6 assists this year and 3 solo events booked. I guess we'll just call it getting geared up.

So far this year I've purchased a 28-70L, a 17-55IS, a 550EX, and more memory for weddings. I also purchased hosting from Bluehost and a couple of web templates for my professional wedding and portrait site. Oh, and I also purchased a new computer, extra RAM, and an external hard drive. It's been an expensive year thus far.

Yeah, this is one more reason why I wanted to wait... Only the future (and my wife! :p) will tell if I'll be able to behave and resist the urge! ;)

This year I purchased the 35L 1.4! I am also planning on getting a Quantum flash system early fall of this year, and deciding whether I want to go for a 5D, or a Mark III (Both have options that I desire... should take until the end of the year to decide.)

New 30D should be arriving Friday. It will replace one of three 20Ds in my line-up. I'm looking forward to a bigger LCD and larger buffer (11 RAW). PLUS, I hear the AF is better too!

Before that, I added four more 4GB CF cards for a total of 39GB- should be enough.

Last year, I added a Sigma 10-20. Gotta love that wide end!
