    My advice: start with the basics and add things as you need them. That said, I consider a Giotto Rocket Blower for dust to be pretty basic. Enough memory cards to see you through however much time you're away from your computer. An extra battery.

    That's it. I live in Mexico and do my shopping on my annual, or every two-year, visit to the U.S. and tend to buy stuff I never use. One of my best was a beanbag for a stabilizer when I don't have a tripod with me. I've used it once to take a picture but it is fun to toss back and forth with my 3-year old nephew.
