    GAS Therapist

    Here's an idea for an entrepreneurial spirit. You set up shop with zoom/skype calls, charge by the hour. Weekly appointments -- emergency rates apply. Your patients -- photographers who suffer from GAS. You listen to their worries, desires, wishlists and try to talk them out of a new purchase...

    Video vs. Stills

    One thing that is stopping my camera body GAS is current emphasis on video. I gather the stills side of things has plateaued for while, at least in terms of advances and profits for the camera makers. I'm not a video guy and when I need video clips of the grand kids the old iPhone comes out...

    Passing GAS

    This is a thread about battling against time-constrained GAS. This happens when someone puts their gear for sale and the deal is good. Either I give in, or somebody buys it before me. It's just a matter of riding it out, see if I can hold on... There'll be daily updates and musings.

    Gear as an excuse

    Hi there everyone, long time no see. As the forum Elders might imagine, real life issues can be an ostruction to ones picture taking, both in good and bad ways - and I've had both of those - add to it a decent smartphone and most of my pics went that way - with some burts of camera activity...
