I suppose Eric know what this syndrome means and look like, but he never dare to write about it, because he use it as a cure for GAS. Although BAS is not so dangerous as GAS, photo books can be quite expensive, more of them are above $50. Also, you can start reading them and don’t go out to shoot photos (which is side effect).
However, I think that is good to study the photography/masters/styles… and then you will shoot more quality photos. As a cure to BAS I swore that I will order new book after 1000 photos.
p.s. I shoot with Fuji X70 (28mm) and really I don’t have heeds for another camera. On the other side I’m too happy with my books and the ability to see all these printed photos.
