    3) Indecisive
    4) Hot-Air Balloon
    5) Show Off
    6) Noe nuts about photography (maybe can rattle away abt the technical specs but do not have any inkling of what those terms really mean)

    Yep, I guess dat pretty much sums up abt it frm my analysis. Unless u've got too much time to spare amusing urself, maybe u shld juz get back to work or wad XXX_Boy.

    Don't think there is nothing wrong with that. If he has some serious equipment that is compatible, you can even borrow for a while!

    I have a relative on my in-law's side who has a whole darn room of photographic equipment. Note - it's a room and not a dry cabinet. Last time i heard of it is that the room is probably bigger than a whole HDB flat here.

    As far I am concerned, I'd rather spend more time conjuring new ideas and processes for my photos then worry about that guy and calling him indecisive and stupid. There are such things called collectors you know.

    After all, I'd love this guy cause if he keeps buying brand new stuff, it means more stuff for us 2nd hand. Of course behind my back, I'll be chuckling away as I cringe my frozen fingers in winter on the cocking lever, as he'll never know the true essence of photography.

    My camera maybe peeling paint, have scratches on its base plate, but each mark to me has a story to tell from the owner's past, and I will not hesitate to put mine on if it means getting that photo I want.

    Cheers.

    He told me that he actually traded in his M6 classic (which he bought 2nd hand less than 2 weeks ago) for his new MP becoz he feels that MP is better built and also much smooth than M6.
    Now the best part, after another 1 week, he told us that he had traded in his MP for a used collector's Leica M6 Classic 0.85 (coz it is rare item).
    Now even better part, after 1 more week, he exchange back his MP from the same shop (paid the shop $200 for nothing) coz he still find that his MP is much more better in all way than a M6 - more smooth, better and brighter viewfinder and etc crap....
    What you guys think about this guy?
    useless, like tits on a bull.

    Agree with catchlights. Jack has his own reasons for collecting cameras, while we have our own for our penchant for photography, nothing to compare.

    i find it nothing wrong. I mean there are people who fondle with rare timepieces, diamond pieces, antique statues, rare collectibles, stamps etc... each of those items can easily cost more than a leica mp. and they can't take pictures lol... so what's wrong with fondling with a expensive camera and using it?

    I thought this thread was about a guy who can change camera lenses damn fast and was all eager to see a video of it.

    hhmm... like that y not you tell him in his face?
    or simply mention his name so we can all avoid him in case he asks us to **** his leica too...
    perhaps u are not familiar with him... if so, who are u to judge him?

    changing lenses damn fast is a good idea for a modern day "gunfight". both photogs (gunmen) will stand 30m apart facing each other, with a SLR camera body in one hand and 50mm lens in the other. when the sign is given, attach the lens as quickly as possible, aim and shoot.

    for some of us photograhy about capturing memories. for others it is the quest for that ideal shot. for yet others it could be just a way to express themselves thru photo art. for jack the leica is art in itself - no need for film. just the cocking of the shutter and the pressing of the shutter release is enough to send a rush thru him that the rest of us may not understand.

    damn..am i starting to sound like a shrink?

    Every scratch, every mark on ur camera's body, tell a tale.
