I-Need-To-Buy-A-New-Camera Syndrome

Whenever there is a new camera announced by one vendor, the owners of the older cameras from this vendor or other vendors all suffer from one disease – and I call this “I-Need-To-Buy-A-New-Camera”.

For example, Canon just released the new DSLR 5D, then many Canon 10D and 20D owners all believe they need to dump the current camera and buy the new one.

Same to other camera owners, Nikon and Olympus camera forums all packed with comments like “Wow, I need to get one !!”, “Geez, my camera is now obsoleted!!” …

Come on, your current camera can still take good photos, why change ? Will you buy a new car because GM, Ford, Toyota released new cars last week ? Will you buy a new house because there is a new one next block ?

Lesson Learnt: People shoot good photos, not camera.
