    What to get through Amazon

    I have $55 in gift certificates at Amazon. Let see what everyone thinks I should blow it on. Max out of pocket cost: $50.

    I tried to go to your bio and see what you needed most, but didn't see anything. Might have been my phone not showing anything.
    Words get in the way of what I meant to say.

    A lens filter or 3rd party battery grip.

    Thought about a set of grad nd filters. I dont feel a need for a grip with the 5D. I'm so used to the 1D that I enjoy the lighter gripless 5D

    I was in a similar situation a few weeks ago on ebay. What I considered where: battery grip, black rapid camera strap, remote flash trigger, or a better beamer. In the end I went against all suggestions and what I first thought I wanted and got an off camera flash cord. It has already come in handy on a few shoots, since its the first time I have been able to get my flash off camera, and Im happy I chose it, plus it was the cheapest and I was able to buy another item(not photography related though).

    The strap is awesome if you carry your gear around a lot and want it ready quickly.
    I think the Better Beamer is only a good suggestion if you do wildlife photography.

    I have an off camera cord, and flash bracket. No need for better beamer as I could make one at home. I have canon CPS straps and Think Tank skin sets which I love.

    You may only get a single B+W ND filter in that price range. Granted, if you don't have one, I'd do so....you could also get a few small square filters.

    Another thought, what about a gorillapod SLR Zoom with ball head?
