    Brand should not matter... and to a good photographer, brand does not matter. The camera isn't taking the pictures... the photographer is. As long as the gear is adequate the photographer will handle the rest. Both brand's are adequate.

    This isn't to say you can't find one feature and say "I like the way brand X implements this." But at the same time you can pick another feature that brand Y handles better. Neither brand has a shortage of good photographers using their gear.

    The OP was asking for advice on accessories other than lenses. I think I counted four different L series lenses in Ken's signature... he's probably got good glass mostly covered for now.

    Tragically, Ken's thread was de-railed by a brand-war debate.

    I think I'm going to have to PM the moderators about putting an "UN-Like" button on Derrels Nikon better than Canon comments ;>)... maybe he's been drinking some kind of home brew...

    What Canon accessories could I not live without? Considering there's third party flashes, grips, and even hand straps, I'd say 'nothing'. But having genuine Canon flash, grip, batteries and hand strap does provide a level of satisfaction in knowing it won't be failing with unrecognizable battery, or something like that.

    I want to thank all the childish people for destroying a perfectly reasonable start to a thread. I posted this in the CANON forum area so as not to draw this type of behavior. But alas... I failed and assumed people could act mature and accept a simple thread for what it was.

    Since my thread is already off topic and I don't have much time on this Forum do the Mods step in very often to restrain this type of behavior or is it mostly a free for all?

    Back to my Post, I was looking to see if there where any items I might have overlooked that I should consider a revisit.

    My SMDV Remote Shutter Release Cable and my Polaroid Hot Shoe three axis triple bubble level for Canon. OK, ok, so they may not be Canon accessories but they are my Canon's accessories.

    I read the Canon threads, but usually don't have anything to add because I don't have Canon.

    Mostly no, the Mods watch for abusive language, and ordinary posters can also report posts as well, but for the most part, it is all about the conversation, barring abuse.

    I don't see a Canon speedlight listed in your gear list. Perhaps you are way above using ETTL flash, but I like it.

    All my current gear is Canon, And I cant live without it.

    T70 body with 50mm prime lens, take most places with 1 spare roll of film and some AAs.
    Maybe the 70-150mm FD lens, Speedlite 277t flash (HUGE - Fits on the EOS 300 too), batteries, caps, cable release,
    Alternatively, for if im planning on taking photos, the EOS 300 + USM zoom lens, or EOS 1100D + IS zoom lens depending if im shooting film or pixels.

    Scared to try the old speedlite on my 1100D.

    What is nice is the old full-frame 80s/90s EF lenses for the 300 fit my 1100D too. Shame the FD ones dont rhough.
