OK, that headline sounds actually better than what this is going to be—because what’s really going on here is that I have accumulated a bunch of stuff in my camera closet at home, and sadly much of it has never been used, so it’s just been collecting dust. So I thought each day for the next week or so (or until I run out of stuff) I’d give some of this junk (er…cool photography micro-accessories) away to people who follow me on Twitter.

To enter this lame excuse for a giveaway, just stop by my Twitter page (@scottkelby) and if you see something you want that I’m giving away that day, just leave me a Tweet that says something along the lines of “I want Scott’s stuff” (Ok, that actually sounds kind of naughty, but you know what I mean). Anyway, each day I’ll post that day’s camera closet giveaway on my Twitter page, then later in the day I’ll pick somebody at random to get that day’s stuff.

Plus, I’ll ship the gear/gadget/dead squirrel to you free anywhere in the world, as long as it’s in Florida (kidding—I’ll gladly ship it anywhere just to get it out of my house. I mean, I’m happy to ship it wherever you live).

Now, at the top of this post is an intriguing photo taken in my home office on a white piece of paper using available light with my iPhone camera (however, I did have to do a bit of post production to get it to look like decent). That thing at the top, with the Nikon logo on the thin plastic case is actually….

…a very cool set of small screwdrivers that fit perfectly in a zipper pocket in your camera bag! (I never said this stuff was expensive, but this is actually a pretty handy little set, especially if you’re a Nikon shooter, but even if you’re a Canon shooter, too). So, that’s today’ kick-off giveaway.

Lastly, if you’re thinking, “This stuff isn’t that great…” just remember….I told you so. ;-)

  1. Scott:

    Here’s hoping that you find that old 300mm lens is in the back of the closet, ’cause you never use that one anymore! It would look nice on the front of my D300! :P


  2. Drop me a note when you decide to give away the monopod and camera setup that got busted by Greenbay’s Aaron Rodgers!

  3. Are the screwdrivers particularly handy for Nikon shooters due to material/craftsmanship defect? ;)

  4. Scott, will you be giving the winners an RMA number to send whatever it is back if they don’t like it?



  5. I tried visiting the twitter page, I couldn’t see anything.

  6. I have that exact same Nikon screwdriver set and it has served me faithfully for many years. Mine lives in a drawer in the kitchen and gets used by the whole family. It’s funny how often you need a tiny little screwdriver.

  7. “I want Scott’s stuff” (Ok, that actually sounds kind of naughty, but you know what I mean).

    At least you didn’t suggest tweeting, “I want Scott’s junk!” :-)

  8. So Scotts going to be tweeting his junk, is he running for office? (Weiner)

  9. People never learn, do they? Here’s another guy putting pictures of his stuff on Twitter! :-)

  10. I think the product shot would have looked better HDR and I am not real thrilled with your composition…and you call yourself a photographer! :D

    ps. I have seen Scott’s junk and it is not that impressive…really! :D

  11. Just aquired my first “camera junk” this weekend. So this is what GAS does to you!

  12. It was kinda weird tweeting this “I want Scott’s stuff” hope i win
    i learn a lot from your books

  13. Scott,

    If I get it can you sign it “Dear eBay user”


  14. Scott… you set yourself up for some great comments here….
    posting your “junk” and the first pic showing says “Nikon” !!!
    LOL !!! You’re making this too easy for Canon users!

  15. Scott…this seems like a great give away. Unfortunately my screws are all Canon so these screwdrivers would not be compatible.

    Good luck unstuffing your junk.

  16. I would love this very useful tool set. What a kind and generous thing you are doing Scott!

  17. Screwdrivers/ Oh, sure! Give EVERYBODY else a set of those cool screwdrivers except ME. Thanks alot, Scott.

  18. I am going to hold breath until the screwdrivers are mine.. PS… I DID appreciate the offer to look at your “junk”. Wait! THAT didn’t come out right.

  19. Is this the stuff that got rejected from ebay!!!!

  20. I didn’t see a picture of it, but if you have any useful Canon products for a 5D laying around…I’d be interested. Thanks!

  21. Scott – very cool way to clear the clutter! I don’t currently use Twitter, but I might have to start now. :)

  22. Cool, thanks Scott!

    Another photographers’ junk is another photographers’ treasure!

  23. We in the UK are short of useful? stuff. Could be a great giveaway

  24. That Nikon tool kit is cool. I want one… Are you living in FL now?

  25. Would love that Nikon screwdriver set!!

  26. Hey Scott! I’m @instaimage Thanks a bunch, I think that little set’s pretty cool and I think it’s awesome I was the lucky one… however you picked…!! Maybe it’s Nevada Luck? :) Maybe I should hit the casino tomorrow!


  27. Aww, how come twitter gets all the fun? Any plans to do fun things on facebook? I don’t have twitter anymore nor do I want it back.
