    Not really Christmas, but in the last 2 weeks I have acquired a new Scanner, to scan film, and a set of Elinchrom D-Lite 4's

    So have pretty well all things considered

    Got a 16Gb CF card from my sister, but shouted myself to an SB900, batteries, charger and a reflector...wasn't getting much else for Christmas (besides tools) so decided to get something fun.

    I treated myself to a Velbon 4-way Super Mag Macro Rail Slider and a Benro plate to mount onto my Markins head.

    Cant wait for them to arrive.

    Mrs Claus and lil' missy Claus bought Santa a Sigma APO 70-300mm DG 1:4-5.6 Telephoto/Macro switchable lens! Woohoo! Came via courier on Christmas Eve, just in time to go under the tree! Should provide some added versatility to the Blue 52/2011 challenge!

    Just as well ... he might have broken it! I'd rather he put it down nice and gently.

    I got a studio backdrop setup ....... my wife hates it - she'd have been happier if I'd bought a new lens that would have just gone into a bag somewhere rather than taking up half the room!.
