We're working on custom swag for the photo.SE community. Based on this chat session and this one we are thinking of making Photo Stack Exchange branded camera straps and 18% gray lens cloths. What do you guys think? Would these be cool and useful for you? Do you have any even more awesome ideas for merch? Leave your feedback below!

  • I don't have enough rep to make new tags...if someone could add the tag "swag" to this, I'd appreciate it. :)

I'd use a microfiber cloth, because that's practical. So sure. It' s not very exciting. I probably wouldn't use a camera strap; I already have a nice one, and it isn't covered in branding.

  • Even better if said cloth was 18% grey, too :) Aug 22, 2011 at 7:45

    @Rowland: okay for exposure, but would you trust a cloth for color accuracy?

High quality stickers? I might stick one on my laptop and possibly on some random gear.

I don't know about a regular camera strap, as I have a perfectly good strap that came with my camera, but if it had something unique about it... I might be interested in a extra-comfortable padded strap or especially a sling-style (1),(2) strap.

What about lens covers or frame?

  • I would definitely use a snap-on lens cap in 49mm thread.

    This is a neat idea, but I'm worried about the number of sizes that lenses come in. If people can list the sizes they want/need, I'll see if there's enough people with the same sizes to warrant getting a couple different options.

You know we're all just in it for the badges, right? So how about some little pin badges in bronze, silver and gold? Perhaps even a variety pack with a bunch of bronzes, a few silvers and a gold. :)

    Physical badges with pure grade metals, please. ;P

Of course, there's the idea of business cards, perhaps featuring their photos on the reverse, with details on t' front - might be more useful for the semi-pros, rather than the pros on here, but I'll through that idea into this mix :)

I think camera straps will be nice, specially if they're nicely padded. I also like the idea of HQ waterproof/weatherproof stickers. Also an online badge showing reputation, rank etc can be handy for people having their own website.
