You’ve probably heard it before.
- “All cameras now take great pictures.”
- “You don’t need a new camera to take better pictures.”
For some, better pictures may be the reason why you want to get a new camera, but let me ask you a few questions:
- Do you get a new car to be a better driver?
- Do you choose a particular pen to be a better writer?
- Does TV look better from a soft couch or a wooden chair?
Sometimes / many times:
- You get a new camera to make taking photos easier – to get a better photography partner so you spend less time operating the camera and more of your attention taking photos.
- Or, your life changes and your challenges change and you need a camera able to meet the new challenges.
- (This could include smaller, lighter cameras.)
- (Or, at least in my case, I wanted to get out of the DSLR money pit.)
- Be kind
- Don’t fret – if you want to research cameras. Do it. Only you stand in your shoes.
