Hey guys, I know I've been posting lots of gear related threads these few days, but bear with me haha.
Here's my situation now. I intro'd dslr photography to my tutor, who's leaving to the UK for his studies with his photogear as well. My dad wants to give him something before we leave. Thing is, it can't be too expensive (at best around S$100, can up by a small amt if needed) and should stay useful.
450D, kit lens, 55-250IS, 50mm 1.8 (darn it, wanted to buy him this!) and a small bag that fits everything he has. I believe he's still stuck with the supplied 4gig SD card, and has no cleaning kit or filters.
So, what are my options?
I was thinking of a cleaning kit, but S$12 for a blower and a lens pen and cloths just don't seem like a good gift. I was also thinking about a set of filters (2x 58mm UV, 1x 52mm UV, 1x 58mm CPL) but don't know if it will benefit him or not.
What about Jack006's benro tripod? The S$120 set one. How'd that serve him?
He loves taking pictures of his family and loves landscapes. Traveling to UK, he's bound to take some landscapes, so a CPL filter or tripod would serve him well me thinks.
What say you?
