    1 67mm UV Protector Glass Filter

    :bigthumb:

    Now I need to decide on a backpack and tripod. Then comes my order for my wolverine flashpac, more batteries and a zoom lens.

    I'm still trying to decide on a backpack (one good for use on a motorcycle) and more importantly I need to find a good tripod. Preferably one that work well on uneven odd surfaces (for placing on odd rocks when rock climbing and what not)... any suggestions?

    If you're gonna go, go all out :eek3:

    Looks like you should enjoy all that stuff. For tripods, there are basically three categories:

    Standard - $30-$80 tripod with screw joints on the head.

    Ball head - $90-$250 super sweet single-grip swivel

    Lightweight - $250+, made out of carbon fiber with whatever head you want on it. :cool:

    They all function the same (three legs, screw mount, holds camera steady, etc...), but it really depends on what you want to do with it.

    Apparently I'm going to be in the $250+ category.... (figures :hs: ) My tripod also needs to be lightweight for hiking, backpacking, mountain biking and motorcycle trips.

    I've seen a few that have like independant legs and what not for odd surfaces... so I guess it's just more research time :)

    For all of that? 2124.15 w/out shipping... there is also a $40 MIR on the tamron lens and a $100 MIR on the camera.

    So just under $2k :hs:
