After joining this forum, I have started to read up on cameras again. I can feel a Gas attack coming on.
I already have enough cameras, but I just feel like treating myself to something.

I will make sure I have paid off all my bills, and other financial bits and bobs. I might just treat myself to something. Not bought myself anything nice in ages. :)
 
YOLO, Jon! As long as it is discretionary spending that won’t affect your ability to feed, house, and clothe yourself and your family, I don’t see a problem! (y)
All family taken care of, bills all sorted. Made sure the missus has everything she needs/wants. It won't be a massive spend, I may even trade in some of my old gear. 😊
 
Not bought myself any camera in years. I do tend to keep my camera stuff for many years. Last camera I bought was a very old Nikon D90. 😊
 
There is only one way to get rid of gas.
 
I had sauerkraut and pork roast for dinner yesterday so I have a serious case of gas... So you're saying I just need to buy something? I'm guessing that not going to work.
 
I think I managed to narrowly escape the holiday sale induced GAS attack myself. Was eyeballing some mirrorless stuff even though I'm not fully sold on it and have some pretty usable gear already, just need more opportunities to try and use it :)

Of course my photo opp attentions kind of shuffle around some and been starting to dabble with nature and wildlife stuff...

Buy a spare memory card and go out and shoot, that's all you need to have fun.

By the way if you want a gas attack walk into a apartment occupied by two or three young men, you will be treated to the smells of male hormones, burning weed, sweat, spilled beer and farts.

Been there done that.

In times of cold and bad Weather, if nothing is scheduled in my studio, I set up and take "still life shots". It keeps me interested, keeps my lighting abilities in practice, and sometimes produces some very interesting shots. Here is a recent one. One studio strobe with a 7" reflector and a 10 degree grid. The light on the table and lower part of the vase is just light spill that I could have flagged out or fixed in POST, but I decided that I like the shot as it is. It gives some orientation to the photo. The light is a Godox SK400 with a 7" reflector and a 10 degree grid. It is about 54" from the roses. The shot was taken with a Canon 90D on one of my camera stands. The table is just a 34" square table top that my son picked up years ago at a Flea Market. It was never actually a table. I place it on a wooden stool with a piece of the foam toolbox drawer liner between them to keep the top from slipping around. Since the stool isn't high enough I place it on top of a set of bed risers, giving me a total height to the table top surface of 34". I could use a table, but this breaks down and stores in my small studio more easily.The 54" square tablecloth came from Amazon. When I started doing this I began buying one of each color and a few at a time. This one is red. Since I now seem to have all of the available solid colors I likely will be buying plaids and check patterns now. I really enjoy doing these "still life shots" when free time is available. It gives me experience using the studio lights in ways not normal for portrait and other shoots, and lets me learn more about what each light is capable of.

There's only one thing worse than a camera related GAS attack, and that's a hardware/camping store walkabout.

One of my foreign mates here wanted to "drop into" our local yesterday, while we were out shooting pics, and OMG 😱
I had to plead with him to get me out of there.

Like you @Jon I've gone without for years. All through 2020-2023 nothing "nice" for me, just to make sure we got through the plandemic safely...
