Buying gear can be quite expensive and because of this, it is important that you pick the right gear for your needs.
In this blog post I will talk about how I look at buying gear and then show you a video from Tony and Chelsea Northrup who are professional photographers from America on the other side of the pond.
With that said, let us begin.
When I’m buying new gear I’m looking at replacing an old or outdated gear that no longer serves a use.
Is broken and cannot be repaired, or the cost of repair is more than a new gear.
When looking at new gear, I check to see if its compatible with my camera body and is designed for the size of my image sensor.
I will read the review and look at what problem people are having with the gear.
Do not buy cheep gear, and stick to known brands like Nikon, Canon, Sony, Sigma, Tamron and what I’ve found to be quite good and well designed when it comes to filters and tripods, K&F Concept.
As the saying goes,
Buy Cheep, buy twice.
Having said that, look around different shops and website that will have deals and sales going on.
This will make getting your new gear a bit cheaper.
Also consider buying 2nd hand if you can’t afford it brand new.
Now I would like to show you a video of Tony and Chelsea Northrup on buying gear.
These two are masters in there own fields and there know a lot about photography gear.
