The only "mistake" is to not be ready to take the picture when the right moment happen.

if the picture is blurred or too noisy or over/under exposed, it's still much better than not having any picture at all.

That is why it is important to know your gear and to have a camera that is easy enough to keep around. ... that is why the long and somewhat obsessive discussions about the merit of one brand or about sensor size are very much secondary. Learning your skills and having a working camera are the keys for taking ~interesting~ pictures.

Of course, there are many situations where having a camera is unsuitable or unproductive or unpractical. ... but, we are not talking about these situations here.

My photography output is inversely proportional to the number of cameras I own.

Since 2018, I have sold or given away a few of my cameras and lenses. ... my photography output has not become magically better though   .. but I feel better nonetheless.

Some of the gear that I let go was great, but, I had found out that I was not using it often enough. I stopped gradually using certain items. Even some lenses that I liked very much. Including one that I loved for more than 8 years.
