GAS, or how I got over it with the help of Fuji X | STOCKOGRAFIE

A lot of us enthusiast photographers know the problem of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrom). There is a new camera which hits the market and you read raving reviews about it. Ok, one great review is ok but you are hooked and read another one, and another on. You absorb every little bit of information about this awesome new piece of gear like a sponge. Before you know it you are in the swirl of GAS. You need this new camera, lens or whatever and say to yourself that you will take better photographs, or that you need this lens to be able to take a certain type of photograph in the first place. I can assure you that I know what I am talking about. Just a few weeks ago, it was the end of November 2014, I came back from a business trip in Los Angeles. The photographs I had taken with my X-T1 and some lenses I had with me where not so pleasing to my eye. As you can imagine I started to wonder why that was the case. The answer was an easy one. It´s the camera and the lenses! I need a full frame camera to take better quality pictures. Yes that must be the reason why I am not happy with the shots I came home with. Before I even knew it I had a Sony A7 and the 28-70, the Voigtlaender 40mm 1.4 and the Canon FD 50 1.4 sitting on my desk. At last, I thought. Know I´ll be able to take all these shot´s I have been missing. Yeah right. You know what I say to myself just a few weeks later? Dumbass! So stupid of me to think that the Fuji X-T1 and the Fuji lenses don´t take awesome shots……
