It’s that time of year again when shoppers are out on the hunt for the best bargains on gifts for others—and themselves! Seems like whenever I set out to do my holiday shopping, I find more cool stuff I’d like to get for myself. So, for no other reason than thinking about gifts I’d like to get for me, here’s my list of items I’d like to pick up on Black Friday or Cyber Monday—or anytime.
Canon 5D Mark III
Sure, there are more expensive cameras in the Canon line. But the 5D line has definitely worked well for me. Besides, since it’s been out for a while now, there should be some great deals out there.
Canon 70-200mm 2.8L USM IS
Always wanted to get one of these. Though they are kind of on the heavy side, I’ve always liked the speed and image quality.
GoPro Hero3+ Camera
Now for those nasty weather or underwater shots, a GoPro Hero camera should do very well.
I have to admit I’ve had my current iPhone for years now. Definitely looks like a time to upgrade. I’m especially anxious to try out the improved camera.
Alien Bees Ring Flash ABR800
Again, there are better models available—a Hansel would be ideal, but a little too pricey for me. The Alien Bees ring flash looks like a good compromise between price and functionality.
Paul C. Buff Einstein E640 Strobe
While I’m at it, might as well get a new strobe as well. Quite a few of my photographer friends use the Einsteins—and highly recommend them.
SanDisk 32 GB Extreme Pro Compact Flash
Can always use more flash cards—more than one would be even better.
MacBook Pro with Retina Display
I’ll admit I’ve been more of a Windows guy in the past. But, I’d also like to get more into the Mac world, and these laptops look great!
There are more items I’d like to add to my Black Friday list, but heck, I need to find the money just to get these gifts for myself!
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Shopping!
