Maxed Out My Credit Card for a New Camera

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and pull the trigger. For months, no years, I have been researching my next camera. I bought my last one in 2008 with some prize money I got from a random competition. It came all the way from Hong Kong, arrived ready to go, and worked tirelessly for me for 8 years. I loved it, and it’s still a great camera, even today.

But I wanted something a bit more professional. Something that I could take amazing pictures with and great video while I traveled. Enter the Sony A7Rii. It was way out of my price range, and the amount I had saved was less than half of the full price. But after researching for another few months, I knew it was the only one that was going to keep me happy, and prove an investment that will hopefully last many years, like my last camera did.

I now have a beautiful camera, and a very hurt bank account, but I’m loving it already. The quality is phenomenal, and hopefully I can get some work with it so that it pays for itself.

Here’s what’s in my kit bag:

Sony 55mm F1.8 SONNAR T ZA LENS
Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff
Spare batteries
Sony 64GB UHS-I SDXC Memory Cards
Manfrotto REDBEE 210 Prolight Reverse Backpack

Some say I'm the most handsome man in the world (my mom), others tend to disagree, but one thing is certain - I love to entertain. Whether it be through music, writing, or film, seeing people respond with a smile is worth more than a bag of gold. Figuratively obviously, because smiles are free and gold is very expensive.
