It's Paid For

Earlier this morning, I logged into my online bank account and did something I didn’t think would be done so relatively quickly. That’s right, I eliminated my camera-related debt.

When I last took stock of my camera-related purchases, the total cost was $1,285.35 including taxes. I’ve since bought a few more items which I’ve listed below. All purchases were made at Downtown Camera; prices exclude taxes.
  • Nikon EN-EL9 battery: $79.99
  • Lambency flash diffuser: $39.99 (discounted to $27.99)
  • Manfrotto Tripod Kit – 190XBD legs + 804RC2 3-way head: $199.99
  • Tripod bag: $24.99
  • Sto-Fen flash diffuser: $31.99 (discounted to $28.79)
  • Nikon 35mm f1.8G DX lens: $275.00
  • Hoya 52mm UV filter: $19.99 (discounted to $17.99)
  • SanDisk Ultra 4GB memory card: $29.99

With taxes, these purchases total $773.74. Combined with the earlier total of $1,285.35, the total amount of money I’ve spent on camera gear is a whopping $2,059.09!

Thankfully, as of this morning, it’s all paid for. I feel no need to purchase additional gear; what I have right now satisfies my current needs.
