What Camera Gear Do You Regret Buying?

There is a ton of gear on the camera market, a lot of which promises to give you an easy shortcut to better images, and while some of it can legitimately make your life easier, a lot of it is simply a waste of money that you will regret spending down the road. This great video featured an experienced photographer discussing some of the gear he most regrets buying and why. 

Coming to you from Evan Ranft, this excellent video essay discusses some of the gear he most regrets purchasing. I think Ranft is spot on when he discusses the importance of having a plan for gear, instead of simply purchasing it because you are excited or think it will give you an easy route to better images. For example, when I was new to photography, I bought a lot of junk lighting modifiers that promised easy soft light and stunning images, and, of course, the only thing I got was confusion and disappointment, because the thing I actually needed to do was spend time learning and practicing lighting. It is easy to quickly drop a ton of money in this craft, so be sure to think twice before you pull out your credit card. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ranft.
