Last night I spent more money on accessories for my new digital camera than I did on my old digital camera…. Did that read right? Not more than I spent on accessories for the old camera, more than I spent on the camera altogether 🙂
I ordered the Canon speedlight (external flash) and a remote control for the camera. Came to almost $400 for the 2 accessories.
I was pretty annoyed as the remote is just a shutter button on a 2 1/2 foot cord. Damn thing cost $50 and I’m sure if I could find the connector I could probably make one for under $15 from parts from Radio Shack.
I’ll also bet that in a few months aftermarket ones will become available if they’re not already, but I couldn’t fnd any.
