Many people will soon receive bonuses for Chinese New Year, so it’s an ideal time to open a thread about photography gear. What could possibly go wrong?
I’d suggest to keep this one exclusively gear oriented, so a place where we can ask for advice regarding cameras, lenses, accessories, share interesting findings on ruten etc etc.
Smartphones -> no
“But you can take photos with a smartphone! Checkm8, bigot!” -> listen you inbred strawman, just because a bicycle has wheels and takes me from point A to point B that doesn’t make it a train.
For the uninitiated: G.A.S. = Gear Acquisition Syndrome
After several years I got a new GoPro because the Hero 7 Black is a very neat piece of tech. The stabilization is absolutely bonkers. I’ve not been in the GoPro meta for a while and back when I had my…GoPro 2? 3?..third party accessories were shitty and not easy to find. I was shocked by how much stuff I was able to buy on Ruten. For the price of the original case I got a set with 54 accessories that has all the mounts I could ever think of, a case, a bag, a small tripod…holy cow, so much stuff.
