The longer you run a 365 the more gear you have. That's applicable for most of us I think. Some purchases are great, some are not. I wonder if you have a piece of gear you really regretted buying. Or maybe you did buy something that turned out to be the best purchase ever?
Olympus OM-D E-M5 (Mark I) - that's the camera that made me fall in love with photography. I bought it in the middle of my first 365 (before Tookapic) and it just made things so much easier. I loved the tiny size and the quality comparable to the one my Canon 50D delivered. If I didn't buy that camera - it's very possible that there would be no Tookapic at all.
Joby stand / tripod - that little octopus-like tripod is so versatile. I try to have it in my backpack all the time.
Polarize filter - especially useful in the winter and in the summer when we get a lot of clear blue sky. Or on vacation, on the beach. It helps a lot with reflections on the water. The same frame can look totally different depending on how you turn the filter.
Lowepro backpack - Lowepro BP 250 AW II to be precise. Crazy expensive when I bought it. But it's probably the last camera bag I bought. Perfect for short 1-2 day photography trips. Fits the size of hand luggage. And even has a special place for 13-15" laptop.
Fujifilm X-T20 - which almost killed the joy of photography in me. I'm so glad sold it, switched back to Micro 4/3 and bought Panasonic G80.
ND filter - I used it once, and never put it on my lens again. Probably lost it somewhere in the house.
Lighting set for product photography - crazy cheap set with a white tent, some backdrops and 3 continuous light lamps. Used it twice. I think I even lost two of the lamps now.
White backdrop - I have a huge white wall in my home office / studio. I honestly I have no idea what did I buy a white backdrop for.
I'd love to know what were your best and worse photography purchases. Let me know in the comments! Cheers!
