    - Out door strobe set. http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=149229
    Used twice. Too bulky to carry around & its hard to set up w/o an assistance. Unless u gonna take lotsa shots in a particular location, to move with such gears would require u to use a trolley. So, I will try using indoor.

    - Expo Disc. Onie tried once. And I think it is useful onie in tricky light condition.

    - 22" reflector. Too small to be effective & also very hard to set up w/o assistance now the coating all spoilt.

    - Raynox teleconvertor 1.8x. Used for my old Sony F707 mainly for portrait but effect not as good as my 50mm 1.8 II.


    - Extension Tube. Seldom use with my 50mm 1.8 II as got no time for macro...

    - Cokin filter system, bought it & used once. Sold after few years in my cabinet.

    For all the above, except the tube & expodisc... can sell at a lost hee hee

    Singh-Ray Galen Rowell's Graduated Neutral Density Filters: Cost a bomb, used once!

    Not sure if this counts: LCD Picture Frame. Totally useless!
