    There are lots of threads about "What kind of (insert item here) should I buy". Here is a thread for people to plug their favorite accessory. Tell us about a cool accessory that you use.

    I got a Gorillapod for Christmas. One of my favorite things to do is prop up my camera somewhere and take a timer shot. I've only used it twice so far. The first time was on the divider between booths in a restaurant. Here is #2

    i'm really digging the lastolite 24x24 ezybox. That plus a manfrotto nano stand = simple, light on location setup. I'm probably going to sell it and replace it with knock-offs though.
