JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 01.14.23
Been thinking about my Fuji X100T this week.
Something happened to it a few weeks ago, right after I shot Promised Land at The Landis Theater. I had a hard time ejecting the media card to get the images off of it. Eventually, I had to send the whole card to my phone, back it up that way.
I eventually had to basically tear the card out as it was stuck on something inside. Now I can’t get a new card it.
The camera is seven years old. If it’s truly done – which would suck – I’m debating about getting another one. Even though it’s seven years old, they are still available for about $800-$900.
That’s a lot of money for a 7 year old camera, I think.
But…I have so many photos I love from that camera. Should I put a price on it if I like the images I get from it? It’s honestly my favorite camera. Does that justify the price hit I’d take?
Do I have the money? Yes, in savings. Do I want to spend it when I know there are other things I need to get that aren’t “fun” things, for me anyway (new baseball bats for the boys, trips they kids will be taking for school, various registrations).
I guess if I want this camera, I better start working towards it – book for few photo gigs, sell some prints.
How bad do I want it….that is the question.
