POLL: Why do you buy camera gear?
Jul 14, 2010

It seems clear to me that there are 2 broad camps of camera buyers:

1. Buy cameras to use as tools to take photos. Photography is the primary interest.

2. Buy cameras because they are cool, interesting devices. Photography is not the primary interest or maybe even of no interest.

IMO, nothing wrong with either one. Anyone who pays their money to buy something has every right to do it for whatever reason they wish. It would be interesting to know what the answer is for many of the posters and readers of this forum though. It helps explain, I think, some of the different points of view that are sometimes almost opposite of each other. And, of course, most of us have some of #1 and #2 in us, but which are you primarily?

Thanks!
