Should I Buy a New Camera

Should I Buy a New Camera? The Answer is Often NO

I know, you're shocked… I'm telling you that the answer to “Should I buy a new camera?” is no.

I can hear you now… “but planetMitch, you're writing a gear blog!”

But really, we're not JUST about gear (tho I have had a lot of people tell me that's all they think we write about).

The gear is part of the method to the madness.

And as you probably know, I follow the escapades of Simon Cade and not long ago I saw this video about how he's holding on to his older camera and still making great content. I knew I had to share it with you!

Remember, it isn't about the gear, it is about the story!
