So... it's that time of year when family members ask what I want for Christmas, and a usual safe bet is for them to get me some camera related gadget or some such.
What little bits and bobs can you suggest for us camera obsessives to ask for this year?

Of course, receiving something would depend on whether you have been good or bad this year? Something small to fit in a stocking, lets see... various lens filters, replacement supplies for lens cleaning kit, additional memory cards, AND don't forget, that Canon 500mm lens that you always wanted, but then that would be somewhat of a challenge getting it into a hanging stocking without falling. LOL! Best wishes, hope you receive what you ask for.


Canon 50D w/grip, Canon 7D, Mark II w/grip, Tokina UWA 11-16 2.8, Canon 17-55 2.8 IS, Canon 70-200 2.8 L IS, Canon 300 4 L IS, Canon 400 5.6 L, Canon 100 "macro" 2.8, Canon 60 "macro" 2.8, Canon Extender 1.4xII, Gitzo 3531S tripod w/Markins M20 ballhead, Gitzo GT2531EX tripod, Bogen-Manfrotto 681B monopod w/3232 head.

lol... I've definitely not been good enough for the 500mm, but filters might be a good idea

and i always recommend someone starting a wishlist. this way you get exactly what you want and you can even link to the cheapest place to get it. adding things to your wishlist as you browse is simple. you just add a link to your IE/Firefox "quick-link bookmarks" and click it when on a site.

My two favorites...on the low end, the Dealextreme bubble level (external link). On the high end, a Hyperdrive. (external link)

Gifts are often things one would not spend on for oneself, and I think for those who use other forms on non-reproducible microadjustment devices because they're inexpensive...a LensAlign Pro. (external link)
