All I want for Christmas...
Timothy Hale, Photographer
Prince George | VA | USA | Posted: 10:55 PM on 12.12.06
->> At the risk of being corny on this forum, I thought I'd start a thread entitled "All I want for Christmas..."

Me, I've asked Santa, (aka, my wife) for Pocket Wizards, a teleconverter, and a monopod. Of course, I had to provide printouts from Penn Camera so she would know what to get. (Crossing my fingers!)

Anyone else want to chime in? It would be interesting to see what everyone else hopes to find in their stockings or under the tree this year.

Merry Christmas and I hope you all get what you want.

Tim

->> This is the first year I don't have a laundry list of camera gadgets I want/need, so I've been kinda stuck. Working for PopPhoto means I've got more gear and more gadgets to play with than you could possibly imagine.

I want a USB turntable to convert all my old vinyl.

I want a snowboard.

And time. I really want time. Free time, that is. Time to catch up on things, play with some new photo ideas, and most importantly, time to spend with my wife– when I'm not exhausted or frazzled, or knee-deep in some project.

->> I know my GF got me a bunch of stuff on my list. She is excited to have a real, nice paying job since graduating college in May and is spoiling me this year. That means more PW's, more magic arms, more memory cards, and more bags. With a bunch of other small camera widgets I need, too. :)

As for spending on myself, I am finally going to pick up a laptop and another D200.

Best part of all, I don't have to wait til Christmas to play with them since I paid for most of it. Though Christmas might not be as cool this year when I don't really have any presents to open...oh well, I think it's worth the trade off!

Or perhaps maybe some new Canon gear and just forget Nikon and their so called customer service.

But after shooting boxing from the overhead position at 3200 ISO with a 20D and 70-200 2.8L and 2x, I'd love to have at least a 300 2.8L...IT can even be an old one!

Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays
