    I rec'd a $50 gift card as a present. I've spent WAY too much on camera equipment lately, so my wife said I can't spend anything above the amount of the card. (Let me take a moment to say, this is NOT an unreasonable request on her part.) And frankly, I'm having quite a difficult time deciding how to spend this.

    So here's the big question.

    If you were in my position, what would you buy with $50 to wolfcamera.com?


    Thanks,

    I agree with the idea of getting a nice bag as well. I have the Lowepro compudaypack. Holds my laptop, DSLR, 2 lenses, battery charger and filters. The camera section is adjustable to the way you want it to be. It also has a front pocket that hold everything else just like a normal backpack. Its nice enough that I can use it when I go fishing to holds some of my lures, a drink and all my camera stuff. I've even taken it to MLS games and acutally they didn't even check the camera secton. I like it a lot better then my old camera/camcorder bag. But if its not a gift card specifly for there I would use it to gain access to a nice photo location. That I might not normally go.
