    I am going through the same phase, Nicole. Started out with the Voigtlander Bessa R with three lenses.

    Dived into the world of medium format with the Mamiya C33 three months later. 2 months into the Mamiya and I ended with a Bronica S2 two months ago.

    Now, I am contemplating a Hassie 500 C/M or 503 CX.

    Must… stop… reading… comparison… reviews.

      haha!! Well, as long as you are happy with the new gears then it’s fine 🙂 Anyway, I think Pentax 67 system might be better than Hassie 500CM

  2. I really like the photograph of your friend taken through a bicycle rack(?). I used to have severe G.A.S. and I think it was mostly because I was unhappy with my photographs. “I’d be a GREAT photographer if I had a bigger and better camera,” I convinced myself. Well, that didn’t happen. And, looking back, some of my favourite photographs were done on an iPhone 4 and a film rangefinder with a 50mm lens. It makes me a little sad and ashamed to think of all the money I’ve wasted on equipment that didn’t help me.

      Thank you, yes, it’s a rack to lock bicycles. Yeah, I had the same thought that more expensive camera will make my photos better. But I realised that most of my favourite photos come from my most basic Nikon film SLR

    I have quite a few cameras as well, but each one costs less than a few hundreds. I’ve never owned a hassy or a rollei even though I would love to try them some time. I think having different cameras make the shooting process more interesting. When you’re bored of one format, you can switch to the other. It helps to get cheaper cameras if all you want is the novelty though. I do have one go-to camera that I bring to all my trips, maybe if you find one camera that suits all your needs, you will have lesser tendency to get new cameras?

      Hello, first time commenter 🙂 Yup, I agree with your view too. Come to think of it, I shoot a variety of genres, so having a few cameras might actually do more good. Just need self-control if I ever chanced upon any new cameras :p
