Upload & Sell: Off
Since the all important, holiest, frenzied, season of buying is fast approaching I thought it might be fun if people posted some suggestions for things to think of for gifts or something for ourselves
I was thinking of NOT including traditional things like cameras, lenses or normal tripods. Instead accessories or other things that help us become better landscape photographers. Things like- great lights for lighting up nightscapes, special boots for wading in streams, a clamp that allows you to stick your camera in unique spots, anything that you have purchased that you found to be particularly useful or fun.
My suggestions are:
A super warm parka from go lite. This company sells direct to consumers only. I find their products to be a great value. I got sick of freezing to death and trying to take pictures at dawn with numb fingers. This coat and a couple of pocket warmers and I am toasty and happy. Other than a somewhat fussy zipper it is perfect. Light, compressible and warm! I might not suggest it if you want super tough for climbing over barbed wire and the like but otherwise it is great. It has allowed me to focus on my photography. I think I have an older model than this one but it is similar http://www.golite.com/Mens-Roan-Plateau-800-Fill-Down-Hooded-Parka-P46883.aspx
The photo pils app. http://www.photopills.com/ Really useful app for finding the sun moon etc. Has some neat ways to figure out days when the sun or moon will be in a certain location, The artificial day and night modes make visualizing star trails or the milky way easy. Well worth the money.
Lets hear your ideas. Cheers Brian
