    Is this dumb?

    I don't use my camera stuff nearly as much as I used to do.
    And I bought most of the stuff to take photos when I'm travelling, but it's a pain to carry around on holiday

    i've done that twice already :hs:

    never gonna do it again :rofl:

    just one of those things where you will randomly be like "fuck i wish i had this and that still...it would've been perfect for this"

    then you'll start looking at cameras agaaaiiin and new shit thats come out since you last were into iiiitt....and then one day you'll be up late at night and not thinking logically because you're tired and start clicking some buttons...a few days later camera equipment shows up at your door and you're back into it again

    on the bright side...whatever you sell your lenses for is pretty much what you'll pay for them if you decide to get back into it. small losses possibly.

    and that looks like a 50d? you could probably get 900usd for it or so...if you were to wait 6-7 months i'd imagine used 7d's will be in the 1100 range so it's a nice upgrade for 200 bucks :o

    its a hobby, i liked having nice equipment to use
    my plan was to eventually get a full frame camera, and get rid of the 11-16mm
     
  11. Bob Loblaw

    Bob Loblaw Guest

    yeah i know
    i guess the smarter thing would be to sell my current p&s and get the canon S90 to replace it

    but then i'd probably want to use the S90 when i go overseas, just because it's easier...
    which makes the slr equipment useless :hs:

    ffffuuuuuuuu

    Sell it all and consolidate down to a 5d2 and a 35mmL.

    seriously?

    i would've thought it makes more sense to get a 5d mk2, and keep the 24-70L :o

    I keep thinking I might do something similar and get rid of my bulky desktop for a laptop that's easier to move. Then I think about all the things I won't be able to do with it and the fact that I wouldn't need to move it that often. Downgrading just to make it easier to move between houses (I'm a student) a few times a year isn't worth it.

    So how often do you travel where carrying all that is a problem?

    I wish I had more money so I could be harping on you to sell your stuff so I could buy it :rofl:

    do you need money?

    why not buy the P&S and try it on? go out and about shooting with it. if you realize you hate it's limitations, you'll still have your good gear.

    nothing wrong with having good equipment and a good point and shoot. i use a crappy 6mp kodak P&S when i go places that the camera is at risk (drunken events)

    Im with the others on this.... if you need money then sell your gear. If you dont, just buy the P&S and keep your gear for when the mood strikes. Cuz i'll bet you'll regret selling it.

    yeah, the tamron stays attached to the 20d, which i was planning on selling to a friend, but i think he changed his mind

    i guess i should get the S90 first and see if it's any good before selling the rest of my stuff :rofl:
