Hi all,

I recently bought a 2nd hand DSLR, so trying to get some accessories:

1. Filter - what's a decent brand to get?
2. Camera neck strap - i would like to use something other than the standard strap. Can across Matin in the forum, where can i get it ?
3. Hand grip - a friend of mine recommended that i get one; as it makes the camera easier to carry? any advice to get one?

Many thanks for your advise!

Cheers

Filters: "Very good" would be B+W. "Decent" would be HOYA Pro1 Digital. Well, it's more than decent. I use Hoya and I'm really happy with them.

For other photographic accessories, check out these local online retailers:

No experience with Matin, but if you ask me, most neoprene straps are about the same.

I use some no-name neoprene strap I bought some time ago from EastGear. Some people don't feel very secure with the quick-release buckles, but so far, I've never had any problems with it.
