Mistakes

December 18, 2014

As you will all come to learn at some point, we sometimes make irrational purchases. We buy products based on wants rather than needs, we don’t consider how future-proof that product might be, we simply fall into a trap of unnecessary purchases in a moment of ecstasy.

It’s true, as when I look back at all those products I mentioned on the previous post, perhaps the 50mm (nifty fifty) is the only one I still use to date.

Let me better explain:

Even though the Manfrotto compact tripod was a device that managed to carry the weight of my 1000D, it was in no way capable of handling the combined weight of the cam with a flash gun on top & the 70-300. After all, it was designed for ‘point & click’s!

The Metz flash gun was completely useless; it lacked all sorts of features & was a joke of a flash!

The kit lenses I got were only suitable for entry level, they were nowhere close to the quality of L lenses’ glass, build, speed or sharpness.

The battery grip, along with shutter release cables & lens filters that I bought were also only usable for as long as I was using the 1000D, rendering them useless when I upgraded the camera body.

The worst purchase of the lot was the Sigma ultra-wide lens; it did the job, it captured decent photos when it was called upon, however, it was not a future-proof investment (as it doesn’t work with a full-frame sensor body ‘due to vignetting’) & well, turned out I wasn’t much into landscapes & cityscapes either!  :)
