Topic - DSLR must have accessories

rallymania - on 06 Feb 2012
So whatís important to you and what would you recommend?

Iím still mulling an upgrade, swinging towards the 600D
Canít decide on the 18 to 55 or the 18 to 135 lens (£600ish up to £750ish so quite a price hike for the longer zoom)
Some filters (UV, polarizer, graduated)
Memory card(s) thinking 2 x 16gb sandisk class 10 cards suggested elsewhere on here (about £20 each) and I can use these in my other cameras too.

Now
Do I just buy a spare battery or get a battery grip.
Do I buy canon batteries / grips only or are the alternatives fine?
(eg the canon grip is about £100 where as the copies are about a third thatÖ are they that bad?)
Iím happy to delay spending the extra money if people think you shouldnít touch the copies with a barge pole :-)
Oh and a case?

Usage is as a DSLR for the mountains / action shots but also as a video camera with the added benefits of pro video camera features like focus, depth of field etc.
