Everyone is a beginner once and so i ask, what did you buy you thought was essential for nice photos but in the end never even use.

Ordered a Feisol tripod online and never even used at all as it was too small. Learnt a lesson to buy what I can see and feel. Sold off at almost 1/2 price.

Hahaha! My monopod. K, I've used it a couple of times (literally), but to really use it, nope. It's always been at that corner of my room. =)
