Camera gear has become remarkably advanced, but on the other hand, it has also become rather expensive. At what point are camera bodies and lenses simply too expensive? This interesting video discussion addresses the topic and if camera gear is simply too pricey nowadays.
Coming to you from Maarten Heilbron, this great video discusses whether camera gear is becoming too expensive nowadays. No doubt, we have seen an uptick in the prices of a lot of camera bodies and lenses, but in fairness, there has also been an impressive upswing in quality and innovation. As the market continues to shrink due to smartphones, it is not surprising to see it shift toward an emphasis on higher-end gear that separates it from such equipment, but that being said, there are still a lot of high-quality cameras and lenses available at more affordable prices. In particular, the used market is absolutely full of good deals, especially now that mirrorless is taking over the industry, leaving thousands of DSLRs available at affordable prices. No doubt, a lot of new equipment has gotten quite expensive, but that does not mean you can no longer find affordable cameras and lenses out there. Check out the video above for Heilbron's full thoughts.
