Hoodman Hood Loupe
The Hoodman hood loupe is used to make a close inspection of the review image displayed on your digital SLR LCD display. The LCD Screen Loupe isolates the cameras LCD display from ambient light so you will not be distracted by glare or shadows. This makes it easier to view image details quickly to confirm focus to ensure that you have the best image possible. It will provide full coverage of an LCD display screen up to 3.0" diagonally with a standard (4:3) aspect ratio. This is priceless to have outdoors.

Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizing filter
Polarizer filters give you several key creative features. They evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep rich scenics. They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots. They eliminate the whitish glare from highly reflected surfaces like glass and water. Polarizers are two part lenses that rotate, allowing you to select the degree of additional saturation, contrast and glare reduction desired. I keep several of these on hand has they can make a big difference in a shot.

I highly recommend Naneu camera bags.
