<AA Voice> Hello, my name's Matt and I have the gear sickness. It's been two weeks since I last purchased a piece of gear (a couple of SmallRig parts if you must know). Seriously though, great article. I'm always conflicted on when and what to buy since I'm extremely fortunate not to have to rely on my freelance film work to put food on the table. What has been helpful for me is to resolve to not buy things until I have X amount in the bank or until such-and-such a date. Obviously if something is needed for a project that wouldn't make sense to rent, then that purchase takes precedence.
