What’s life like without hardware? All those tools and components that allow us to do the things we want to do? Without hardware we wouldn’t get much done.
For photographers hardware is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because we love taking and working on photos and obviously we can’t without equipment.
On the other hand it can be quite a burden. Life in the photo lane moves fast and our hardware quickly becomes obsolete or just starts to crap out. Anyone who has taken the photography plunge has no doubt use his credit card on more than one occasion to upgrade, repair or replace hardware.
It’s inevitable. The camera and computer companies love us.
