What do you truly need this Christmas? Blake Rudis releases 2017 “Anti-Gift Buying Guide”


posted Friday, December 22, 2017 at 10:15 AM EDT


Christmas is just around the corner and Blake Rudis of f64 Academy has created a new gift guide video of sorts. Rather than tell you all the great photography gear you should hope to receive for Christmas, his video is more anti-gift guide and it lists off the photography gear you don't need for Christmas this year.

Photographers are known to have serious cases of gear acquisition syndrome, or G.A.S., but Rudis warns against simply going out and buying the latest and greatest gear. It's very easy to think that you need the latest camera or lens, and in some cases you very well do, but it's also a good idea to slow down and think about where your current gear is actually failing you. Perhaps it isn't failing you at all.

If you're feeling gear envy or like you absolutely need the most expensive and newest gear out there, Rudis' new video might be for you. Check it out below.
