So, now that Christmas and Hanukkah are done and Kwanzaa is almost here, I figure we should share what we’ve all received (or given) for our photography setup.

I got a Manfroto tripod from my mum, which may be the best gift I received this year. Seriously, look at these two shots.

My dad was also thinking of getting me a new lens, but it was $1800 (hell to the no am I going to let that happen). He also considered a new body, but that was $1100 (also a no).

So, what has everyone else added to their collections?
