Pick one:

1. Food photography

3. Unboxing videos

...move unboxing videos to #1. In my opinion this really shows that it's not about the photo, it's about the look of the gear that matters most to these guys. AT least selfies and food photos are people actually taking photos.

If it's the selfies we see all over the internet, it's not even about the photos, it's about craving attention in social media. I respect people liking technology and wanting to share the experience with others who might want to learn something, like what comes in the package. I can't respect people who are so starved for attention that they take their own portraits because nobody else will.

Selfies should be #1 and stay there.

Unboxing videos are for gear collectors and nothing more. I don't respect that.
