Provo | UT | USA | Posted: 5:27 PM on 12.13.04
->> I'm putting together a list of things to spend the last of our department's supply budget on before the end of the year. I thought it would be nice to start a thread on what gadgets and goodies people are asking their bosses for this year. I'll start it off:

Lensbabies: In either Canon or Nikon mount $96

www.lensbabies.com

Visible Dust Sensor Brush $89 to $110

www.visibledust.com

GretagMacbeth Eye One Display Calibrator $250

http://www.pictureline.com/computers/software/gretagMacbeth/eyeone.html

Feel free to add your 2 cents

Thanks for your input,

Jaren Wilkey

I really want a Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L, but I don't think Santa's pockets are that deep this year.

hmm.. what else... does anyone have any input on the Canon S1 point-n-shoot?

Oh yeah, and a million bucks!

just bought myself a Pelican 1650 case for X-mas to keep all of my lights in. i like to peek in the garage and look at it from time to time. "it's so purdy!"

oh, i also bought Slayer's new "Still Reigning" DVD for myself while Christmas shopping yesterday. watched it when i got home. my wife was shocked. looks like i may be going to hell before Christmas even gets here. (:

Along the novelty, well I guess non-frequent use is a better descriptor, category, I think a tripod with a powerful suction and gear to remote a camera would be pretty cool
