    Yep, got a bigger better Giotto Rocket,
    a collapsible flash diffuser
    and a lovely twist-through reflector/diffuser that will be very useful with my macro work.
    Thank you Santa

    It was a fairly lean Christmas photography-wise - I got Joe McNally's "The Moment It Clicks". Good book though, I'm quite enjoying it.
