Don't mind me..... I'm just out roaming around between Zone II and Zone IX.

I live in the Southwest.  Imagine walking into town with two big guns strapped to your sides.  

The Wacom Tablet?  I can't draw.  That is why I use a camera in the first place.

Gorilla Pod.  Actually I do have one of those.  I used it to hold a flash once but other than that never with a camera.  Would probably be good for 'selfies'.

Lens Pen.  I had one of these once.  It picked up the dust but left little circles on my sensor.  It is a Rocket Blower or Eclipse fluid and swab for me.


If I had to think up 4 of the most useless things...

Love my Wacom, gets a lot of use, but, unlike yours, my images need a lot of work!  :(
