    I just got a 35mm lens on Christmas and I feel like I should buy myself something for photography.

    I was thinking either:

    Grip
    Battery
    Bigger SD card
    Lens filters

    Any other suggestions? Just stuff every photographer should have. Please dont say save up and buy a flash, I'm most likely getting a SB flash for my birthday in a couple months. I have enough money to buy it right now, but I dont want to spend more than 100.

    BTW, i dont need books or anything....I've been using photoshop for over 8 years and take photo and graphics design classes at school.

    Thanks!

    Do you shoot landscapes or outdoors?

    I recommend a circular polarizer.

    Yeah, or a vest.

    I know a lot of people think vests are the opposite of cool, but depending on what kind of shooting you do they are very handy things to have. It's like a bag that you wear, lol.

    If you do get a vest, I like the Domke one.

    I'll most likely buy a bag and a polarizer. Any other suggestions?

    I want something universal since I might be switching over to a D90 in the upcoming months.

    Yeah.

    Buy one or the other. $100 is not enough to get both if you want decent stuff.

    Or more, if you like.

    Figure about $80...

    And maybe another $80 or so for a good bag...so more than $100 total.

    There is no way you could get a good filter and a good bag for $100...

    Let's say you found a good filter for $60 - that leaves $40 for the bag. Depending on the size, it might be doable...but you would probably end up replacing it later.

    What size bag do you need? How many bodies & lenses?
    Will that bag still be big enough a year from now?


    If you shopped around and found some good deals, you might be able to do both, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Wait, I'm confused. You've been using Photoshop for 8 years, but you started a thread the other day about how to edit photos?
