People who buy expensive gears and then rarely use those
5

I know quite a few people (fewer than 10) who bought expensive camera gears and then rarely use them.

When I asked them the reason, this is the trend I discovered (in no particular order)

  1. Not visiting interesting places, so not bothered to carry better cameras.
  2. Smarphones take same quality images (!)
  3. Overstimated interest in photography.
  4. Did not need expensive gears, but brainwashed by sales persons/online forums etc. buying it.
  5. Carrying big heavy camera is a faff.
  6. Can't instantly share photos in social media (for older cameras) - so phone camera is better.
