Your next purchase
#1
What is the next camera-related accessory you will be purchasing?
Filters, lenses, tripod, flash, card reader, eyecup, flash-memory, cleaning cloth, bag, software, other?

For me, I'm looking to buy this PCMCIA Compact flash adaptor. Or this one Ultra

Will it be faster that my USB 1.1 card reader? If so, then I need this, many good photo-moments happen when you can't take pictures (because memory card in use hehe)

I've lost my eyecup a few months ago, but do not think I will be replacing it soon.
I think I'll also be getting some flash-memory (next year), followed by a flash and some lenses.

So many things to get, so little money.
I admit these things are not neccessary, and I could do with what I have now (I am contentSmile) but wouldn't mind having those Tongue

Hey I lost the eyecup on my EOS 300 as well... Sad

I think I'll definitely get more memory, or maybe a portable image tank drive. I don't think I can survive another long trip with my 256 mb card! Smile

Also on my list is a 55mm polarising filter for my Fuji S5000.

btw..which one would be better to use a polirising filter .. a circular polariser ... or a circular HMC polariser ?

The best for a digital? HMC circ.
Personally though, the non-multi-coated ones are good enough. Must be circular though.....

Just looking through Mrgadget.com.au to see what else I 'need' (haha, funny right? trying to go through to see what I 'need') so I can take advantage of free postage for ordering 3 items or more (only know 1 item at the moment) *hint* peter: need anything? lol

I came across this:
SmartDisk Flashtrax
A portable hard disk which can play mp3s, watch videos, look at pictures, and has built in card readers! wahahah! portable storage Big Grin~~ nice
even can view textfiles, it's almost like a computer Tongue haha!
Nice interesting gadget, but not enough money for that at the moment (laptop will have to do for now), but still so nice Smile

Or this one Vosonic VP300 X-drive pro! cheaper, and 40gb! the main difference I would think is that you can't preview the pictures, but 40gb!!! you wouldn't need to preview with that much Tongue
So many nice things to have! (which I can't afford) lol Smile

I also have some uni textbooks to get, I think I'll borrow most from the library but have to get the thermodynamics one, chemistry one and vb.net one, each is over $100!!!! That money could be used to buy accessories... but if I use them right, pass and graduate, I can get more money (hopefully). I'll think of it as an investment Tongue

The quantity myth.

Never buy lenses 'cos they look cool, especially if you arent rich!

Example:
I bought a 28-135 I.S. about 18 months ago. Heavy. Uses extra battery power.
Optics average, usability average, cost? High!

Option? 28-105 or 24-85 and a TRIPOD.
Failing the tripod bit, then a tree, a bench, the floor, etc etc.
The pics are much nicer.

We are too ready, (you and I), to buy when it seems good, looks good, feels good, or has credibility appeal.
Doesnt mean it is good.
Watch out!!

What do you do for extra power ?
Having heaps of memory is great..
but if your battery runs down first. .
not that great ...
