A Bessler 4x5 color enlarger. I love digital but never lost my passion for film.

I just purchased a Hahnel Inspire Wireless Liveview Remote for my Nikon. I use it when the camera is on a pole 12 feet in the air. I get to see the liveview from the camera through a 3.5" LCD screen which Ive attached to the pole at eye level.

A WalkStool Comfort XL22 three legged stool. Everything it's cracked up to be including the not-so-high-quality carry bag. Comfortable to use, easy to pack.

Technically, it was not purchase because I won a Canon 500D with attachments.

Last purchase? A box of Fuji Provia 100F, 4x5 color positive, 20 sheets $54.00 from B&H. ($20 cheaper than eBay and fresher).

For me, it was my first prime lens - a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro. I should be able to pick it up on Saturday. I can hardly wait to try it out. The experience, however, was a little tarnished at the shop.

I bought it at my local camera store and went in thinking it was $499 with a $50 mail-in rebate. That's a lot for me, but after many long debates with me, myself and I, not to mention with my sweetheart, I decided to go for the macro lens vs the hundred and one other things I/my hobby really, really needs/wants. Surprise, surprise, then that the clerk/owner told me there was a $200 rebate and I could get my lens for $299! Guess I should have known - if I'd seen that on the internet I might have been suspicious, but at my local camera store - well, skeptical thoughts never entered my head there. Suddenly visions of sugarplums started dancing in my head and I could almost see my first real speedlite, albeit a cheap 3rd party one, but still a speedlite of sorts and it was suddenly appearing out of the mists of neverneverland. Now I was really, really excited - a speedlite/flash to use with my macro lens! So I placed my order and went home to salivate. Imagine then, my disappointment when I got a call to say that the clerk/owner had made a mistake and the $200 rebate was on the newer Tamron lens. Well, I had expected to pay $499 so, of course, I told them to go ahead and order the correct $499 lens but at that/regular price there was definitely no room for a speedlite, not even a cheap one. So, I'm looking forward to my lovely new macro lens, but now I'm going to ache just a little bit until next year when I can, hopefully, afford to get a speedlite/flash.

Wish me luck with my new macro lens!
