Maybe it comes from belonging to a Photo Historical Society, but for me,
Gear Acquisition Syndrome has nothing to do with digital equipment used
to, you know, actually take pictures, but with museum pieces that get
used rarely if at all.
The entry cost is lower than for digital gear, unless you develop a
liking for Leicas, Rolleis, and the like.
As a bonus quiz, how many cameras can you identify? Extra points for
cameras in the rear on the lower shelf. I will spot you the Perfex
(bottom row, center), an American camera from the 1940s that loaded, but
had a hard time exposing 35mm film.
