    A piece of string. I use it to tie back wayward branches that want to be in my photos, but haven't been invited.

    Very good quality Cable Release. The cheap models never quite worked right for long. The really good releases are still going strong years later.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    A home made viewing frame for different film format and lens focal lengths. Knowing exactly with what camera and lens I can come back for wanted pictures at least quadrupled my photographic output in no time. No guessing, just knowing ahead. It fits my shirt pocket and weighs and costs nothing. It goes with me everywhere where I feel photo opportunities.

    Bug spray. For shooting night shots of the city from the river.

    A toy laser pointer, attached to the front standard and pointing some 10m (or 30m) far to know when camera vibrates because wind, and to learn how much time it takes (with a particular tripod) to get steady after inserting the film holder.
