Another great post by +G Servo.  My camera body is six years old and lacks many features ( auto-bracketing, more pixels, higher ISO ) that I need in order to do the photography I want to do.  I did not plan my past purchases and did not focus on what was essential.  I did not set aside money for any planned or unplanned purchases and now I need equipment I don’t have the funds for it.  Like +G Servo, I too have a family and money must be prioritized ( braces, clothes etc ).

It is about saving. If you are a photographer earning money from your work, always set aside a percentage to go into your fund. If you can, instead of buying a coffee or lunch, bring it from home and put that money to the side. Everything helps. Photography is not a cheap hobby or career. Plan, nothing lasts forever, especially photography gear.
