Happy new Year to everyone. I hope the Christmas and New Year festivities have refreshed your body and soul and you are raring to go for the new decade.
I might have mentioned I don’t really do New Year resolutions. If you want to do something you can decide that anytime, I don’t see the significance of saying it for a New Year. Of course your mileage may vary, as they say and that’s fine.
It is the time of year I tend to look at what equipment I have and whether it still allows me to do what I need. Most of the time if were honest it is not the the equipment holding us back though. Come on… I said be honest 🙂
I think I’m sorted for now. My Nikon CX and DX gear maybe old (understatement) but I don’t feel for what I currently do it is holding me back.
I still love my Nikon V1 for when I want to travel light. If I want to go even lighter there is always the smartphone. Yes I do enjoy photography with all my gear.
My old Nikon D200 is still usable for what I do and for me there is just something about it. I actually prefer using it to my D5300, Why because it fits my hands well (small isn’t always better) and I do like the output from it. There is something that appeals to me from its CCD sensor.
The output may only be 10mp but I have several prints hanging on my walls from that camera. I don’t need anything larger for what I currently do.
So I’m OK gear wise for now, but I think it’s important to consider what your gear choices are every so often and think if they are still fit for your purposes.
