Everyone I'm not sure this is the right place for this post.

Anyway As stated in my second post here, I receive a D90 for my Xmas gift(wife said I can't touch till Xmax :cry: ) .

I'm curious to know what accessories is a must to have.
I've been looking on fleabay and one particular seller has some really nice accessory kits with the SB-600 flash and a lot more accessories for what looks like a reasonable price.

Not sure if its against forum rules to post links to fleabay so I won't.

So tell me what I should have in my camera bag...

Get some kind of cleaning kit to get rid of the dust that will appear on the sensor after a while. A rocket blower and a LensPen Sensor Klear would be a good start.

Most of the time I dont bother taking a bag with me, I just stick to one lens and sling the camera over my sholder and I find this much easier and more practical. However when I go on long trips my bag contains:

Sony a100 body (soon to be an a700 after christmas, cant wait)
Sony 17-80mm lens (soon to be cz 16-80)
sony 75-300 (cant afford to upgrade this yet)
Rapid R strap/hand grip if i fancy a change to the normal strap, depends on situation.
Rocket blower
USB Card reader
Lense/camera body caps.

+ some aditionals for my trip eg water bottle, some food etc..

The bag I use is a lowepro slingshot 200

I own a slingshot 200AW but this has been collecting dust since I got the fastpack 350.

Inside the fastpack I have:

Nikon D80 body with lens attached (70-300VR when shooting birds, 50 f1.4 when out and about :P ), the 18-70DX, 50 f1.4 and 70-300VR lenses with hood attached in the lens pouches, SB-600 in it's own case plus a diffusor.
In the upper compartment I have the battery charger for my EN-EL3e's, a charger for my AA batteries, USB-stick 4GB, 2 Nikon pens from Nikon solutions, 4 spare rechargeable batteries and a second EN-EL3e.

Looking to upgrade to a bigger bag, since the 350 is not AW (without cover) and is limited when I want to upgrade in lenses and body.

- Wout -
Lowepro Nova 200 AW filled with Nikon D90 + MB-D80
18-70 DX, 70-300 VR, 35 1.8 DX, SB-700

I just recently purchased the Kata 3n1 Slingpack 20 in the sale and I absolutely love it. It even came with a free tripod holder that attaches to the bag really nicely. I might do a review of the bag soon.

Contents at the moment:

Canon 450D + kit lens
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens
Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO DG Macro (not even used this yet, it was given to me)
2 spare batteries
Wireless remote
Giottos Rocket Air Blower
Hama Lenspen MiniPro II
Couple of UV/protector filters
Spare 2GB memory card
Cleaning cloth
USB cable
Notepad and pen

Awesome bag! really comfortable too with the ability to wear it in 4 different ways.
