Are you preparing for a summer road trip and thinking it might require more than a smartphone to properly document it? This post offers some perspective. Originally published at Pro Photo Supply.
I have a difficult time sticking with something longer than I need to. Since I started working at a camera store five years ago, I have purchased and resold nearly a dozen cameras (not to mention lenses, flashes, and camera bags—oh man, bags.) I’d bet only two or three of those cameras had more than a thousand clicks on the shutter before I lost interest. And it’s not that I am continuously seduced by new technology; many of my purchases have been used items and film cameras. My needs and interests just keep changing, and my response is always immediate: buy now, act now, solve the problem now.
