GAS – Gear Acquisition Syndrome

cameras, Fujichrome, fujifilm, opinons, thoughts, photography, pictures, public

I have always had an appreciation for fine pieces of engineering, be it cars or cameras or even phones. I can feel the urge biting at me again, having recently found a very competitively priced (used) Fujifilm X Pro 3 with a couple of decent lenses. As is always the question, at these times, do I need it, what will it do that I cannot already do with the cameras I already own.

I already own the X Pro 2, which I admire greatly and does the job I require of it, it takes great pictures with great colours. So why am I considering the X Pro 3 ??

There is, as far as I can tell, no real rational explanation for GAS other than I want, I have the cash and I love the design. Yes the XPro3 has a slightly larger sensor, and does things that the XPro2 cannot, but none of them are deal breakers. I just want.

I must say, I do like the idea of not chimping all the time, which I have a habit of doing, as the main screen is hidden as to make this more difficult, not impossible, but less likely. Giving a more film like operation to the camera. Making you think before you soot, slowing you down a little, getting things right before you click the shutter. Sounds like I am trying to persuade myself, and I probably am. Even used, it is a very expensive item for me.

It certainly won’t make me any better of a photographer, but will encourage me to get out and take pictures because I have robbed the bank manager of all that cash. LOL. Watch this space as I have not bought it yet.
