Certain priorities have changed in my life recently. One is owning less, which for those that know me well, will say I do already. Yes, I certainly agree, I do own less now than I did before, especially after I cleared out a lot of stuff a few years back. (God, that felt good.)
But recently I had a bit more of a clear out. Not much, just a carrier bag to donate to charity, getting rid of some paperwork and selling my Nikon D3200 camera and accessories with it.
I always wanted a Nikon camera and I bought the Nikon D3200 back in 2012. I have taken some lovely photos with this camera and I loved using it. But since I have owned this camera, my priorities have changed. In the past year I have not used this camera since owing a compact zoom camera. I only used the Nikon camera to take a photo at time of putting this up for sale, so I knew what the image count was, after someone queried.
When I first had the Nikon, although on an amateur level, I wanted to get serious with it for myself, but what I learnt in regards to some of the technical basics, I soon forgotten later down the line, for not keeping up the practice was some of it. Although I could easily look it up and practice, my priorities have changed and I love my new Sony compact camera. I am happy to own less, when it comes to owning a camera, so whoever buys the Nikon, with the accessories, it will a suit beginner, or for someone who wants to own an extra camera.
Deciding to sell my Nikon D3200 has not been a decision I have made lightly. I have been deciding the past 6 months on whether this would be the right decision for me now and I feel strongly that it is.
