Our new Wish List feature is live! Stockpile lusted-after lenses, turn hoarding into organization, or just save what you love right inside your BlueHillco account.
Wherever you used to see a little heart shape on our page is now replaced with an “Add To Wish List” button! Look it on both desktop and mobile.
Access your Wish List via our homepage top bar on desktop or via the scroll-down menu on mobile. Your list might look pretty empty at first (don’t worry, if you already had “Favorite” items from the heart system, those automatically ported to the new Wish List section under My Account). Here’s mine for some inspiration…
These are a few of my favorite lenses, plus a point and shoot I really want to try. One of these lenses I’ve even written about in The Canon MP-E 65mm Macro Puts the Microscopic Within Reach. It’s such a specialty lens, I want it always ready in my Wish List to be rented for when I have new plants, bugs, and more to get macro shots of.
That’s the beauty of this list. You can add notes to particular items, which is my favorite part. I left a note on the RX100 V to remind myself I want to try it for my next vacation – I loved the RX100 III and wrote about in Why the Sony RX100 III Point & Shoot is a Vacation Must-Have.
This also works on mobile, where you can still see your notes and add the items to your cart when ready.
When you do rent stuff, your Wish List is at the ready below your cart so that you can add any “Oh yeah!” last-minute items to your order. Or just keep them wistfully waiting for you in the Wish List for as long as you want. I don’t recommend that for the soul, but budgets are budgets.
Back to that showing off part: you can share your Wish List with other people. This is handy for teams, projects, or publicly proclaiming your love of certain items. This might even be a good remedy for Gear Acquisition Syndrome! Probably not, though. GAS is a serious problem.
Right now you can only have 1 Wish List but stay tuned for expansions. For now, let us know what you think, share your own lists, and have fun with it!
See my complete Wish List here, including notes on why these are among some of my favorite BL items.
