    Every camera that I've ever owned ...I've had one of these 61KaZ9ObGsL._SL1000_.jpg
    None of your knobby sholder slings for me ......always hand carry ...or stright into a sling bag

    Helps stabilise the shot ..your not going to drop it ....and makes the camera feel safer from opportunist theft

    The rubber lens hoods I got for my 50 and 20mm lenses are pretty neat.
    I don't recall what I paid but it wasn't much.

    Wireless trigger, like a Phottix one. Bizarrely on Nikon it's always been cheaper and easier to add this on low-end Nikons, as they have an IR receiver, but the pro-am/pro families don't.

    Anyway it lets you do night landscapes, astrophotography etc without having to touch the camera and thus introduce shake.

    Second to that is probably an infrared filter, which with the right camera gives you a whole different set of possibilities.

    Loads of people use similar leads for dSLRs.

    The problem with some of the Nikon leads is that they are something like 10 core cable and very stiff. It's quite easy to tug the cable slightly as you take a shot which can induce a bit of shake. The cordless ones are much better.

    My favourite cheap accessory is undoubtedly the lens hoods on my lenses. I put them all on backward, just to annoy that cunt Bungle.

    My second-favourite cheap accessory is undoubtedly the cheap metal thumb-grip I bought for my Panasonic GF-1, that goes on the hot-shoe, and is locked down with a grub screw. Makes holding the camera much easier than relying on the skimpy Panasonic finger-grip on the front of the camera.

    Have to admit, I'm a fan of wireless/cordless kit, for exactly the reason you mention.
