Gear Salad - doing more with less

Vincent Laforet, the ultimate HDSLR gear head, has a new gear page.  Which is awesome if you are really into gear.

I have worked for years to get rid of gear -- to simplify in any way possible.  I find that the more I shoot, the less gear I need, which is nice.  I don't want to rely too much on circuit boards and batteries, because they inevitably die or break.  

The idea of owning all this gear to shoot video just makes me anxious.  I don't want to own it.  I want someone else to own it, so that I can rent it.

The most important piece of gear I own is my head.  And until that breaks, I'll rely on it more than anything else.
