Even when the opportunity presents itself, I rarely talk about gear. Because ultimately I want the work to be your priority, not the tools I use to get there. My old camera was a Christmas present from Phil so that I could take photos of our baby girl. It helped me to develop a sense of style, apply the fundamentals of exposure, and be quick-fingered when a moment worth capturing presents itself. But if I didn't think about upgrading, I would miss out on an opportunity to learn (and keep up with) the vast improvements in a new camera's technology.
Have you ever tried to slice a tomato with a knife you just had sharpened, or manually switched to four wheel drive through a snow storm, or took notes at an all-day seminar with a laptop instead of your cell phone (or even with pen/paper, for that matter)?
Yea, this camera is like that. Setting my sights to make this investment is better than sliced tomatoes.
