    What do you buy at a Camera Shop with a $50 gift voucher?

    I just had a birthday and, knowing that I am keen on photography, my step-daughter bought me a $50 gift voucher for a camera store. Now, I could use it to offset the cost of an expensive lens or something similar. For the fun of it though, if you had fifty bucks to spend at your local camera shop, how would you spend it?

    A cleaning cloth? Half a new camera strap or memory card? The perfect excuse for having to buy the new lens. Can't let good money go to waste

    Agree entirely with your suggestions. But if you just have fifty bucks?

    A wrist strap for my little Olympus - although knowing our local camera store they wouldn't have one.

    Something like a memory card, a filter or some kind or a flash diffuser?

    I dunno, though, as I get all that type of stuff on eBay and not even sure what they’d charge in a camera store.

    Forget the memory card!
    There's little shop in Memory Lane, where you can buy a coupler rollser fillum,
    and a few flash cubes
    CC, Image editing OK.

    That's my problem too. I buy just about everything online and I am out of touch with in-store prices. For example, I bought a non-genuine remote trigger on eBay for less than $5 with free delivery. The same remote (albeit branded) at the camera store? $39.95.

    Ask your step-daughter to put an extra 0 on the end of the gift voucher value.

    I'd be looking for an ND filter. Even if I had to put in a little extra to get the one I want
