DataColor SpyderCube

For $US40, this little cube can solve all your colour balance woes and not take up all the free space in your bag.

Nikon 50mm F/1.8G ED AF-S Nikkor

Every photographer should have a good fixed-length lens. For standard DSLRs, 50mm is the go-to focal length for awesome street photography. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better balance of quality and value in a lens other than this $US220 Nikon one.

Pentax K-r With 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lenses

Compared to the likes of Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony, Pentax is a brand that is often overlooked when it comes to DSLRs, but you can get a totally respectable kit for $US700. That’s cheaper than most Micro Four-Thirds cameras.

Joby Gorillapod Video

Cameras now shoot video, too. Good video. Getting some video-centric gear for your camera isn’t all that silly. Like this $US30 GorillaPod that’s been designed with video use in mind. This thing would be great with a point-and-shoot or a Micro Four-Thirds.

Rokinon 85mm Aspherical Lens

The 85mm Rokinon lens has acquired a cult following because of its aspeherical lens and 1.4 f-stop value, which can produce some razor sharp photos with amazingly shallow depths of field for only $US300. Don’t believe me? Just check out this video.

Sandisk 4GB Extreme Class 6 SDHC Card

All memory cards are not created equal. Some transfer data faster than others and it doesn’t just pay off when you’re writing data on it. It’s essential for properly storing video shot by DSLRs. This Class 6 Sandisk card only costs $US14 and can write at speeds up to 20 MB/s.
