"What would next aquisition"



OK so have sold off my old F601 and lens, have only my D60 and Fuji S304 (for my daughter to learn on) left.

I have invested in a CPL for my landscape and glazed / water shots. But, I was now wondering what would be the next item to get to enhance my kit.

My lens is 18>55 and about ideal for my work I don't think going for a 10mm will benefit me much more, I don't really need a tele-photo either so was looking for advice.

Hi Derek,

You don't have a tripod listed in your User Profile.
A 3 stop Neutral Density (ND) filters will allow you to use slower shutter speeds than a Circular Polarizer.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Hi Marty,

Thanks for that I was completely overlooking a Tripod in my thinking, and the neutral density filter, OK off shopping on the "bay"

How about a remote shutter release? I use mine all the time - well, whenever I use a tripod. I find it to be a great $15 investment.

Hi,

I have had a good read there and am off to have a look online for some suppliers as I think it is a sound investment along with the IR release probably get an ebay one to be honest!

My thanks for the advice

Derek
