Downsizing my photo equipment? What?!?

  1. Being a photgrapher myself, I have seen such a moves already a few times. Mostly people that travel a lot. Sometimes a pro photographer wanting lighter gear to be on the road.
    Good luck with your new equipment. Post some pics.

    The main thing sold that is dear to me, are my Magic the gathring cards. At one moment in time, I just could not keep up anymore with the new releases. Also my photo hobby started to take more and more time. So, I sold all cards.

    1. Yep, I have seen it too – it’s a big change, but ultimately I’m switching over to a lighter, smaller and cheaper camera system that generally produces quality that matches or exceeds that of full size DSLRs. I finally asked myself why I’m waiting to make this switch. Just do it!

      Thanks for reading. 🙂

  2. That sounds like a pretty good trade-off to me. Lighter and same quality for very little, if any, out of pockets costs once you sell the old ones is s solid deal.

    I should probably sell some things I have been holding on to in order to just minimize clutter. Why do I need 2 sets of golf clubs when I barely get to play once or twice a year at this point?

    1. Hey Vawt,

      Yeah, the two sets of things plagued me as well. At one point I had like 4 different Nikon cameras. Why? Why did I need that many cameras? A couple months ago I sold two of them. Now, of course, the rest will be following. 🙂

  3. I switched from Nikon to Sony in December. I kept my F3 film camera and some manual focus lenses. I don’t feel like I’ve missed any images because of the switch and I’m happy that I only need to haul one camera system to the woods.

    1. Yup, hauling only a single camera system (and maybe even a single *camera*) definitely takes the weight off of the ol’ shoulders. And the Sony is nice and light, too…which is nice.
