Wohooooooooooooo. And if anyone's on the fence cos the colors of the renders look off* from SA Camping, here are re-colors I did based on the first batch of renders for GMK Camping (can be found in the IC thread):

*IMO, they look realistic save for the green color. I think that's how it'll look like if sunlight was striking the keyboard


Edit: Oblotzky has updated his renders to show maroon novelties

So the green color is going to be the same or lighter and less saturated than the SA version?  I like the lighter and more muted renders in the OP, but the photos I've seen of the SA kit show a medium-dark significantly more saturated green. (e.g.: http://i.imgur.com/utcM4Ze.jpg , https://i.imgur.com/9JNTYv4.jpg)

The colors will be exactly the same as the SA version, at least this is what we try to achieve.
The oblotzky renders in my IC thread are more accurate, but they still have the green novelty keys.
I have already asked him to update the renders, will post those once I receive them.  :) :)

Thank you for doing this, the oblotzky renders are more accurate imo.
This is due to the SP colorchip sample pictures on their website is pretty off, as well as the Krogenar scans.
Thesiscamper uses those to make his renders.
Or otherwise SP adjusted their VF green.

Anything to help the group buy, my lord! Waiting for the legit renders, tho. It should be obvious I'm just an amateur at editing  ;D

Thanks for the renders! And thanks for putting this buy together. I already have SA Camping, but Cherry profile is my profile of choice and I can never have too much green, so I'm in!

Dang, now that you mention it, there is a pretty big difference between the renders on the site and actual color of SA Camping. I too, much prefer the lighter and less saturated green. It gives it a much softer and natural feel to me. Oh well, I just might jump in on this group buy anyway.

Any reason why the GMK Camping is so much more expensive than GMK Nautilus? The Nautilus only costs $99.99 for a 150-key set.

There are a lot more novelties on GMK Camping and custom molds=more money needed to make the set and custom colors where royalties have to be paid to use. Probably the big two on top of my head.

Agreed, my preference is the color from the GMK renders rather then the actual SA version.

Here's a breakdown comparing the base + novelties kits of GMK Camping, Nautilus, and Laser:

Camping:
250 MOQ: $175

Nautilus:
250 MOQ: $130 + $35: $165*

Laser:
250 MOQ: $140 + $60: $200**

*By the looks of it, Camping has twice the amount of novelties as Nautilus
**MiTo used a lot of custom molds

massdrop also gets special pricing for some things as they are a big, consistent customer

I really hope the color will be like thesiscamper render, the softness is calming.

But seems like I will buy it nonetheless  :thumb:

Camping contents more novelty keys, and also more keys, there are 168 keys in the base kit if I can count

Can anyone shed some light on how the set will look in person?
Like others here, I much prefer the muted/earthy (almost textured) colors, but the original looks to be quite glossy. The renders look somewhere between these two. Speculation?

GMK will be matching the colors from Signature Plastics, so it should look very close to the SA set that already exists.

The kits are already quoted and the group buy is already running.  Please use the interest check section for requests.  3U spacebars are a unique situation for a limited set of boards but if you and 100 of your closest friends agree to it, who knows?
