      Actually, I've bought quite a lot of kit (mostly lenses), tried it, used it for a specific project, then sold it on. While I've lost money on some, I've actually made on others.

      I know for a fact that it's cost me a lot less than it would have had I taken up golf.

      As for the article on rules, there are some truths in there, but nothing new.

        And the most important rule of all; hide the receipt when you get it home!

        I have just got myself in hot water following my recent visit to Italy.

        The hotel receipt showed an amount of €540 EUR for 'Camera' which took some explaining!

        So, maybe if I buy my next 'camera' in Italy I can say it was an hotel room.

          At least the accessories supplied with the camera were not itemised.

            Good stuff in that list.

            Im guilty of several photo habits that need watching.

            I use the rule of thirds too much. I use the ends of each zoom rather than mid focal lengths. I depend on narrow depth of field too much. I usually leave the tripod at home. I'm usually too lazy or to old to get up early enough for the perfect picture. I try to keep people out of my pictures.

            Unfortunately I'm too old to change.

            P
            Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

              That is very true!

                Try the Fibonacci golden ratio. It's like the RoT on Steroids.

                  My No.1 rule is - apply the same rule as my wife for new equipment - "What this old lens, had it for ages just not used it much"

                  As my wife is not interested in photographic equipment it works, she photographs well so rule 2 is - "this will really improve portrait shoots of you".

                  2nd rule took a little more convincing when applied to a recent purchase of the Tamron 150-600 for my full frame

                      Before complaining about the weight of lenses just try carrying a couple of Mamiya RZ67 lenses for a few miles!
