Trivia (LXXXV) - Pro Advice

Confessions of an Ex-Gear Addict. How buying cameras and lenses made me miserable and lose thousands, and how you too can overcome Gear Acquisition Syndrome.

«Let me save you hundreds (thousands?) and lots of pain. My pain, your gain. I’ve lost time and money in G.A.S., and let me tell you what I have learned:
  • Gear doesn’t make you better
  • Too much gear makes you miserable
  • The more gear you have, the less time you spend shooting with each piece
  • Gear can become something to hide insecurities
  • The less gear the more creative
  • Much happier with less gear»
