Parents have asked what i want for christmas and well there is nothing that really stands out for me right now that is under 100.

So everyone list the best accesories that yu believe every photographer should have that cost under 100 or $175 US. Bear in mind i use canon.

What kind of stuff do you shoot?

If it's landscape...

- Singh Ray Blue-Gold polarizer
- Heliopan Thin mount regular polarizer
- Bogen 3001 or 3021N tripod legs

If it's portraiture...

- Some Vivitar or Sunpak battery operated flashes with slave triggers. (You might be able to swing 2 of those for $175...)
- 1 or 2 collapsible reflectors
- lightstands!

There is tons of other stuff I can think of, but it's not occurring to me at the moment. You might actually think about these items, which are always useful....

- CF cards
- SD cards (for that Mark II you are about to get. )
- External hard drive for the computer.

Just some ideas.

I bought this book for myself & you may already have it -

Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Man, the Image and the World: A Retrospective


It is a fantastic read/insight into the work of HCB & less than 50 - leaves you some change for a high quality soup flask & good quality socks for this winter's outdoor shots!

Regards

A cable release (remote switch). Way under your limit, but maybe they'll give you a basket full of goodies.

Spare battery(s) - ditto.

Big Ed (the grip).

Extension tubes.

Best I could do in a short time.

Have Fun,

Bubble level for the hot shoe, photo vest, new camera bag to hold the camera and new lenses (always buy bags a little bigger than what you need now.)

I put a mini McBeth color reference card on my list. Omni-bounce is nice. Not sure what an L bracket costs, but a true must have.

an ST-E2 wireless transmitter- go off-camera with that 550ex!

Also, along the same lines- an Off-Camera Shoe Cord 2, or a Stroboframe (or whatever your flash bracket of choice happens to be)
