I simplified once. When this thread was initially started. Then fell right back down the rabbit hole of shooting more/different things which, before I could even put thought into it, had me re buying more gear. And a lot of photography becoming work, instead of enjoyable. I started a discussion over the summer due to shooting what is a larger event, and being unable to decide which gear to shoot it with because I had too many choices. While I should be shooting that same event next summer. It will be with what I have, and be fun again.I've been trying to strike a balance recently. It's frustrating for me. For those of you who can simplify, I'm a bit envious.
I'm waiting for dual joysticks and direct upload to the Googapplezon orbital quantum computer.I decided to step back in time . . . I found a mint condition X-T1 for a really good price. It's not the latest or greatest, but I've had the T1/23WR combination before, they work well together, and this combination was less than a T2 by itself. 16MP is plenty for me, and having Acros wasn't worth several hundred more $$$. Other things like the dual card slots and joystick are not big issues for me.
Amen! Add in IBIS, and I'll be all over it.Oh how I long for a Fuji body the size of the GX9, weather sealed, RF style, with a tilt screen.
I SOOO wish these were available back when I was shooting events or at least when I could've still justified changing my mono lights for them. Now I really don't have a need for them, but still.........downsize my lights from AD600's to AD200's. I'm giving up 400w in power. But 200w lights are bright enough for what I shoot. Plus, the AD200's are a lot more portable and versatile. I can throw the AD200 in a camera bag with a body and two lenses.
I picked up one as a backup to my AD600's from a guy on FM who used it for one shoot. So basically brand new. I find myself grabbing the AD200 most of the time because it's so much easier to work with.I SOOO wish these were available back when I was shooting events or at least when I could've still justified changing my mono lights for them.
