Worst purchases are speedlights, expensive and never used. Transcript: "Worst purchases. I've always made been in speedlights. I feel like they're extremely expensive and I never end up using them. They end up sitting in my camera bag, and by the time I think about selling them, it's not. We're selling them anymore, and then they send up in the closet. So, yeah, there's usually my worst purchases"
Worst purchases are speedlights, expensive and never used.
I've had to purchase some large pelican cases in the past which I regret as they're too heavy and never leave the house. If I find something I'm not into, I try and sell it quickly on eBay so it doesn't devalue too much.
I usually rent gear before buying it to make sure it will fit my needs, so I don't have any regrets about purchases I've made.
In hindsight, most of the gear I have I at least give it a go and see if it is beneficial to what I do. There are one or two lenses that don't get used much, but for the most part I use everything I can. Most of my work is done on location, so I have a small amount of grip gear that lets me work with the light that's available.
I wish I hadn't purchased a Red Monstro or Helium camera as they are overkill for most commercial jobs, and the camera will lose value each time it's used. There are other solutions out there that could fit more clients' budgets, and be equally as good.
No, I still like having the equipment and I use it but it is my least used.
