    Tis the season to start putting that wish list together.

    While I have a couple non-photo items (a couple PS3 games) I want, my list is dominated by camera stuff


    -new tripod
    -canon 50mm 1.8
    -diffuser for flash
    -collapsible reflector
    -$$$ to have some prints done on canvas by Jared
    -Tamron 70-200 2.8
    -Tamron 28-75 2.8
    -new 77mm circular polarizer
    -NG filters for both of my lenses
    -a couple extra CF cards



    What's on your list?

    I think I would really like a new tripod. I pretty much have everything I could want. Aside from a Hasselblad HD3 :big grin:

    not sure if I can ask my friends/family for anything. who the hell would fork out the money to buy me a 70-200 2.8 VR? :rofl:

    not really sure i want the 18-200 anymore. even that's too much

    hell i dont know.

    new tripod and the tamrons are pricey for a christmas wish list. reflector, flash diffuser, and cf cards are all pretty cheap though. Everything else falls in the middle somewhere.

    I did just wreck my umbrellas. I could use some new ones. That's a good thought.

    It, um, diffuses light. Basically it spreads the light out so you don't get a flash spot on what you're shooting.

    lol, my family isn't much of a christmas present family. I'd rather work and earn my shit anyways.

    I'm asking for money. Probably will end up with $250 max from all family members.

    I miss my manfrotto monopod.

    I should make the dumbass I sold it to a really lowball offer and get it back.

    dont forget your new found need for batteries and a charger now


    I am not asking for anything really this year. I would not ask for camera stuff to begin with, but I dont think I am getting a christmas bonus this year so my wife and I are really just buying for our kids.
