So I shoot with the 350D as a hobby, nothing serious, I just like what I see and try to capture the moment. Through the years, I've accumulated a number of lenses which I find suitable for my needs. And as much as I would love to have higher end lenses, it's just not in the works right now.
And because of this, I try to pick out the most practial stuff to buy. One of them happens to be the BG-E3 Hand grip. It was great at first. I felt a balance with the camera with heavier lenses.
But something was always nagging me about it in the back of my head. Something was off, and I couldnt point my finger at it. Maybe the fact that it made the camera feel heavier, or the fact that my hands are just slightly smaller to feel comfortable, or the fact that it made the camera feel cumbersome and made it less portable.
So I decided this weekend to take off the Hand grip and try once again and go back to basics. I felt like I just grew up too fast and miss things along the way.
I'm surprised to find out that I love the feeling again, like getting a renewed vigor for photography. And to be honest, having the Pancake on a Full-Size-esque housing of a body feels odd to me lol.
Has anyone else had to bring it in and take a step back to rediscover their love for photography, or just make life easier? Thanks for reading.
