Question Is it just me???

Hi folks

Is it just me or do you find yourself purchasing lots of versions/models of various accessories?

Up to now I have 2 versions of a wired remote shutter release, 2 versions of wireless - with & without timer - shutter release, 2 different macro converters, 2 body jackets, etc.

I'm now eyeing up another version of the timer, wireless remote shutter release!

Maybe I have Obsessive Compulsory Accessory Syndrome! Or more money than sense!

I have a draw full of filters that I never use.

Re: Is it just me???

I have a cupboard full of stuff that never sees light of day I think they are a good idea at the time, use them once or twice and put them away... and forget about them I really ought to go through what I have and have a clear out.

Glad to hear it's not just me that accumulates many versions of essentially the same thing

Re: Is it just me???

Most photographers collect bags; I'm still looking for new ones. I also seem to have a lot of lenses that cover the same range and I can only use one of them at a time.

Re: Is it just me???

I turned off ‘One Click’ purchasing solely due to the G&T / wine effect. Saved a fortune!
The comment about bags struck home, I’m still living in hope of finding the perfect travel camera bag. Got close a few times but at that point the airlines started to get more strict around weight and size of carry on bags.
My weakness tends to be memory cards, and possibly rechargeable batteries.

Talking Re: Is it just me???

Oh no! I've just succumbed to a third flash unit! The FL-14 @ only £44.95 - how could I resist? Better than half price! Well, it's more powerful than the one with the E-PM1 & more compact than the FL-300R... that's my story anyway
