Do you spend more time researching next upgrade or actually take photos and editing ?

Mostly taking...

When I'm ready to purchase a new camera, I spend a couple hours a day for a few days reading up, comparing specs, hunting down samples, etc., then make my decision and buy. I give reviews a small amount of weight, user comments a smaller amount of weight, message boards a very small amount of weight, feature content and tech specs a sizeable weight, ergonomics and personal handling a sizeable weight, and price a small consideration to wrap it all up.

Of my remaining time related to photography, I spend virtually all of it taking the photos, and as little time as possible processing the photos. I get my enjoyment out of taking photos, being out in nature or scenery, and capturing it. I download to the computer and spend a few hours sorting, cropping a few, and resizing to post or share, making prints, and sign off. I get very little enjoyment out of time spent in front of a computer, so given a weekend or free time, I'd rather spend it taking photos than processing or editing photos.
