Help Pine Survey produce more quality

34827292_15431609740_r.jpeg


Long story short:

Hi! My name is David, but most of you will be more familiar with a little side project I have been doing for the last few years: Pine Survey . A blog dedicated to high quality reviews on gear, apparel and camouflage.

I have not monetized Pine Survey for several reasons and the few Google Ad Sense ads, cover my server costs only.

Since Pine Survey is also known for its photography, I would like to take the chance and improve this aspect even further. With this go fund me campaign I would like to gather the funds to upgrade my photography equipment.

The plan is to get the new

1) Fuji XT-3 with the XF 18-55mm lens: 1899€
2) a Godox TT685F Flash 157€
3) and maybe a Fuji XF 80mm Makro lens 1269€

Depending on your support this is also the order in which I will get the gear. I am grateful for every small amount you can spare. I am setting the goal higher as the gear costs, since GoFundme will take its fair share.

Help me make better content for you. Thank you!

Everything in more detail:

I came up with Pine Survey  sometime in 2013, but it took me some time to actually put everything together as you know it now. This would have not been possible with the help of other people in my life.

For over 5 years now I am writing reviews on gear, apparel and sometimes camouflage. Once a year I visit the huge IWA Outdoor and Hunting expo, which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany.

So pictures are basically 50% of my content.

Given the fact that I have not only high standards for the reviews I produce, the pictures I take and process, I would say it is a necessity to have decent equipment to actually do this. So far I was quite happy with my Nikon D5200 but I would like to upgrade to better camera equipment.

Pine Survey does not provide me with any funds to finance such an upgrade. Therefore, I would like to ask you for your help to push Pine Survey a bit further.

The plan is to change to the Fuji family of cameras. Currently the new XT-3 hit the market and I would like to start using this for my reviews. Three pieces of kit are on the table:

1) Fuji XT-3 with the XF 18-55mm lens: 1899€
2) a Godox TT685F Flash 157€
3) and maybe a Fuji XF 80mm Makro lens 1269€

If by any chance more funds will come up, I can use it to pay my travel expenses to next year's IWA. But let’s not get carried away.

I am happy and grateful for every little contribution, and quite frankly would be surprised if this campaign would work. You are most welcome to prove me wrong.

I am setting the goal higher as the gear costs, since GoFundme will take its fair share.

With that being said, Thank you for reading, and also thank you for your contribution!
