Re: extortionate pricing on accessories

When I worked as a photojournalist in Tokyo, the Japanese photographers would take a 5x6" index  card. Then cut a tail on it, attach it to the back of a strobe with rubber bands and adjust the angle.

Worked like a charm. When it got funky due to use, they tossed it and made another. As one of the technicians at the Nikon Service Center warned me, "Every time you walk into a camera store, they are after your wallet." Same is true for Amazon or other online stores. And this guy was a Nikon employee!
