Hi guys,

I hope you have a great thanksgiving and got some awesome stuff with the black friday sales.

I've made a Google form to collect votes for the keys that I'm considering to remove so that we can bring down the pricing of GMK Camping a little bit.

Please vote, I will be really appreciated!

Hi fellow geek hackers,

Hereby I'd like to introduce you GMK Camping.
This was planned after the success run of SA Camping, and we finally have the time to settle this down.
First of all, Camping was created by Monkey six with ideas came from friends among the Camp group. It was meant to be a private project within the group. I posted the ďICĒ here and received a lot of interests which drove the project to be opened to the public. After Camping was delivered, I received questions from different resources asking if we will run that again in the future. Unfortunately, Camping was meant to be a one-off run to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Camp group. As alternative, I talked to the original creator Monkey six, and we are providing the GMK version of Camping in return of your support during SA Camping.
We hope you like this.  :) And please feel free to provide any suggetions.

Specs:
Profile: Cherry 112344
Manufacturer: GMK
Material: ABS double shot
Colors: Custom colors per SA Camping (SP colors: VF/WCK/RBC)

Special thanks to our homie Oblotzky for renders

Oh my god. SA Camping is one of my favourite sets ever, but cant use since im an ISO user.
This is FANTASTIC news. love the set.  :thumb:

Is there any plans where you are planning to run this set? I hope there will be a EU proxy.

Set looks very good. Only thing id wish for was a green ISO enter (but if only one - the red is good). Usually not liking novelties but i like every single one here.

You seems to have the base-kit almost perfect. Is this something that is close to being ran or are we looking at Q1 18?

We've been preparing this for months. So yeah..this is actually ready to go, we'll make modifications per IC feedback as I'm talking to vendors and GMK for group buy details.
The actual launch date depends on regional vendors and how well the pricing progress goes.

Glad to see this done in Cherry, not fond of SA profile even though it looks fab on SA. Also pleased to see split-space in the spacebars kit :)

Who have you looked at for EU proxy? mechboards, candykeys or mykeyboard.eu are good.

One request, adding a 1u R4 'Hack' key to the base kit would be great!

Hell yeah, letís see this happen.

Any chance of a non-novelty set of maroon arrows (I.e. regular arrows without compass graphics)? Iím a huge fan of the colours just not big on novelties most of the time.

The novelties are included in the base set? Damn, this is so enticing. I actually hike and camp. This speaks to me more than the GMK's I'm looking to buy atm. Hopefully announcements happen soon :D

Also, any chance more novelties would be made? So many bits from actual camping would look cute on keycaps. Like a boot, trekking poles, ala-nalgene bottle, headlamp, etc

Wish it was all text mods... but I love the choice of legends like 'return' and 'print' and 'super', as well as the 'backspace' hhkb bs. Much more appealing than the norm for GMK sets imo   ;D

For ISO keys, both of them have the same sign. Personally i like the crocodile gaps on r4, but r3 can also be changed.

Aw yisss.  Great port over for GMK.  Glad to see this set return.  Heads up all!  Custom colors announced, we need a hype train on all fronts for this with a SOLID vendor for support.  250 is the minimum and though we can all say insta buy, we need some strong media blasts for this.  Is Chain as hyped up about this as the NA market?

Id say the interest is there! This was actually the biggest surprise in a long time and i never expected a GMK version of it.

I don't care about planck support. But I'd love if it added R2/R3 novelties for 65% layouts :P. Either way I will buy it though.

Hi all,

Thanks for all your comments/suggestions, I'll surely look into some great suggestions such as a R4 1u End.
About ergo/planck and more novelty keys, the thing is..we are doing this as a vendor GB rather than MD.
Hence we need to take good consideration of pricing and compatibility and of course MOQ.
Once GMK sends me the pricing of this initial design, I'll see what we can do about all your requests.  ;D
Currently, my goal is to keep Camping ~$150 GB price. I received some nice suggestions about lowering the price that really worth considering, such as remove one of those 2 arrow novelties.
Let me know what you think about this please.
