I don't care about new cameras because I can't afford them anyway

I remember days gone by when the tease of a new camera launch would fill me with excitement. When the thought of more megapixels, a faster processor, and the possibility of in-body stabilization would make me consider, is it time to upgrade? 

I’d spend ages researching how much I could get for my current system, and hoping that there was an extra-special trade-in bonus or freebie that would seal the deal. But these days, new cameras are so expensive when they first come out that it's hard to get excited about something you can’t afford.
