Camera Equipment Wishlist

I'm always dreaming of what my next camera accessory purchase will be and I thought it would be fun to share my wishlist.

I have a Nikon D5100 and it's perfect in just about every way. My only wish is that it was full frame, but that's a story for later.




I love my 50 mm lens, but sometimes it's just too zoomed in to be practical. It's nearly impossible to shoot indoors with it since I have to stand so far back to get everything in frame. But the pictures it takes come out magical so I would like to try out the 35 mm since it is less "zoomed in"


Polarizers are great for outdoor photography, they make colors stand out and reduce reflections. I really want to get one to see what it can do!


 Ever since I first got a camera I have really loved taking close up shots of things. One day I would love to own a macro lens to take proper close up shots of my plants and the bugs that like to come visit my garden.

I have a few bags that work alright as camera bags, but I would really love to have a proper camera bag to carry everything in. Especially if it's cute like this one!


And last but not least, probably something I'll never own, but I keep it on my wishlist because it's fun to dream.  A fast zoom lens. It's fast because the aperture is huge and can let in a lot of light, allowing you to have a higher shutter speed than normal, in darker situations. My 50 mm is a fast lens and I am obsessed with the effects it has. I would love to see what kind of photos a fast zoom lens could take, but they cost well over one thousand dollars!

What is on your camera wishlist?

  2. I have the exact same problem with the 50mm lens, I end up having to substitute with my iPhone and just wince at how those photos stick out like a sore thumb next to my properly taken photographs! But needs must! I really want to get the 24mm lens, it's whats top of my wishlist at the moment. I could definitely do with a camera bag too, I have a terrible habit of just throwing my camera into my handbag with everything else. The one you've picked out is really cute! I can see it working with your style :)

  4. Hmmm well, to start, I'd love to get a camera! ;) I use the camera on my phone because my point and shoot is so old that the photo quality pales in comparison to what my phone camera takes. A dslr is on our want list for sure though!

  5. It's always good to have a wishlist, or any list. How else would you know what to work for, buy or do? I think I might be a little obsessed with your camera & the photos you take. They come out so clear and lovely! I just can't seem to do that with my camera so I just use my cell phone camera instead. I can just imagine what cool shots you'd get with new equipment.

  6. I had a 50mm with my Canon as well but was not so happy for the same reason as you. I have now a 45mm by Olympus and i love it so much. It's not a big difference in number but a huge difference on the picture.
