You spend $6,000 on a new kit. Two weeks later you're shooting jpegs on auto exposure.

 

Should there be any spouses, partners, parents, children, debtors or any other entity with an interest in a photograpers expenditure be reading this post, please be aware this of course was a witty and ironic throw away line simply intended to entertain and tickle fellow photographers.

It is of course a well accepted truth that 2019 sensor technology with at least 4K video is essential for the 640X480 pictures we get published. Formerlysnappyoncalifonia should be commended on his frugality.

So true. You end up earning more money than from stock photography by being on winning pub quiz teams because of the knowledge you've gained from keywording
