    Wish-List: $50 Limit

    Greetings, APUG:

    My family does a secret santa thing for Christmas every year with a $50 limit for which I must provide a wish-list. I really want to ask for some kind of film or analogue-photo accessory. So, the question:

    If you were going to try to get the most bang for your $50-buck, what would you purchase?

    Details: I already own a Nikon FM2n with several lenses, a good incident meter, and filters. I like B&W film better than color, but I'll shoot whatever.

    Oh, that's the one thing I forgot... Gift Certificates are not permitted. The rules say that only "real" gifts are permitted so that we don't just exchange money.

    What about a consumable that you've always wanted to try, but never quite enough that it didn't get pushed back behind your regular purchases? Then you can give back a print to your gifter, saying "Look at this film/paper/toner/developer that you bought me. I tried it out and I really like this and this and that about it. This print is for you as a thank you."

    A 100' foot roll is a great idea... I suppose hp4 would be just as useful, depending on your ISO preferences.

    I've never had much luck being gifted film/paper/chems/cameras...

    But books are a different story. I have been given some very nice ones over the years and they go a long way...

    yes, a thank-you print is completely appropriate, thanks!
