Help Jacob Spend a $50 Photo Store Gift Certificate

Ok, here's the deal.  Jacob, the NYIP Director of Operations received a $50 Gift Certicate to B&H Photo.  He's looking for suggestions on how to spend it.  There are only two stipulations.


1) The item can't exceed $50

2) He doesn't need any more memory cards


So what would you buy?  Let us know in the comments.  Jacob appreciates your help

How about an Introductory Filter Kit - Ultraviolet (UV), Circular Polarizer, Warming Filter (Intensifier) and Nylon Pouch ?

The first two items are really the same but for different cameras. These two are kind of essential. FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon w/10-Pin Connection $38.50
or FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Canon w/3-Pin Connection $37.25
or SJ-3 Color Filter Set for SB-900 Flash Head $23.95 These could be kind of fun and creative.
or Cokin P Series Starter Kit for Nikon D70 Digital Camera $32.98 Another fun kinda thing I'd never buy unless I had a gift card.

Enjoy your gift card!

You could get one of these:

1) A Humvee Safari photo vest
2) Executive jacket for an iPad (if you have an iPad)
3) Flip jacket for an iPad

My best "under $50 purchase" from B&H has been these:

I've sat many a cold -30C morning waiting for sunrise in the Rockies and happy to have them. Heck, I've even been happy to have them on a -6C trip to NYC and trying to use the touch screen on my phone without removing my gloves!

The essential polarizer filter : for example : B+W 67mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter

A wireless shutter release remote....handy!

The first thing I would buy is the Archival Methods 11.25 x 14.25" Leather Print Folio in Burgundy. After shipping that would leave a little over $3.00 so I would probably buy a Domke Filter Organizer so that I used my entire gift card up. :)
