Two CF cards to replace the two I chucked in the garbage after one of them bent a pin in my camera and in a card reader. It was a light purchasing year. Bought only one lens, a 55-300 mm VR which is a consumer grade lens but really nice. On the shopping list is an Avenger baby boom arm and an additional heavy duty stand and three books on food styling and an 80-200 2.8 two ring.

Oh doh! That's right, I just bought a variable ND filter, too. And a cheap video tripod.

But I had compartmentalized it in my brain as being for video, so it didn't register!

I wonder if everyone here thinks of photography as significantly different than video, even though they use so many of the same principles on the technical side.

I think of photography and video as substantially different. We often work shows that have a videographer as well. I watch those guys work. Much different animal. Also a whole different skills set and techniques necessary, not to mention the difference in gear. Most of these folks tie into the PA system so they can pick up the announcements. Not at all my cop 'o tea.

Hmm, I guess the last purchase even remotely photo related would be a new hard drive to backup images to. Other than that, haven't bought any new gear in quite a while now, and I can't remember what that last thing was.

Yup, like Sam I purchased two 3TB 7200 RPM drives for $89 each on newegg.com and they weren't in stock long @ that price. The drives are for photo storage of course.

Finally! You've been wanting that lens for a long long time. You gonna love it.

As for me, it was a 67mm CPL for the 70-200 f/4 that I use for travel (much smaller and lighter than the f/2.8 IS II version). Tests show that that brand, whose name escapes me at the moment, is as good as B+W but at half the price. I'll post the name of the company when I go upstairs.

I also got an extra battery for my 1DsIII.

LAst purchase was yet another cybersync transmitter for my cybersync receivers for my ABs. Broke the first one (don't ask). Lost the second one (have no idea). I'm glad they are relatively inexpensive. But the quality still astounds me.
