    hoooo boy... this was REALLY hard to press the purchase button. I deliberately got into doing this professionally so I could justify stuff like this, but I'm now stepping out of the 100% "I desperately need this" into the space of the "Well, I DO need it... but I could technically live without it..."

    This also happens to be the space where things are starting to cost me a minimum of $300-600, and I've now acquired all the lenses I need that are under the $600 price point... all my next lenses are $1200-1500. :shock:

    Anyway, I'm still pretty excited, so I wanted to share the shopping list. :)


    I got...
    Now I just hope most of it gets here before Wednesday of next week because I really need it all for a job. :lol:

    GO ADORAMA AND B&H GO! GO GO GO!!!

    ^^^ After all the money I just spent, I cannot afford an empty milk jug!!! :lol:

    I actually am going to get some light stands and stuff (triggers and such too), but my wife is already going to go mental when she sees the final bill, so I figured another $200 or so probably would be ill advised. :) I'll slip that in a month from now instead! :)

    You should wrap or paint the sides black. At this point you have light flying all over the place.

    Thanks! I'm excited to try out a multi-flash multi-snoot kinda thing. Should be very fun. I'll have to see what the limitations are on line of sight for the commander mode until I get the radio slaves.

    Probably works better than one too... :lol: :lol:

    Hey Chris, if that SB-800 is new, it's supposed to come with:
    - a 5th battery compartment
    - 2 gels
    - a small foot stand
    - A diffuser
    - A manual
    - it's own nylon case!

    All in the signature gold Nikon box... why did you buy another diffuser?

    Maybe we can use a color translucent plastic wraps to wrap around that milk jar to create different effects.

    ummmm... cuz I'm an idiot and didn't do my research??? :lol:

    Ok, well I guess I have an extra diffuser for sale!!! :) Anyone want one? :lol:

    It has a 5th batt compartment? That's interesting... just so it has more power/lasts longer or is it like a RAID hot spare kind of thing?

    *Chris needs to do more research before buying stuff apparently* :lol:

    heh, I'm actually just starting to get to that point. This will be my first purchase that will actually displace one item I use pretty regularly now. Of course, it happens to be kind of a piece of junk, but...

    Oh shoot, I just realized I need to buy a circular polarizer for that 18-200. Hmmm... wonder if I can slip that in without the Marcia noticing. :lol:

    God this hobby/business is a money pit.
