    On the other hand, if you think through your shots, consider and compose your shots carefully e.g. not being trigger happy, film can be sustainable as well. Wastage will be reduced.
    Actually, my school's assignments are these like sports events, etc, so actually sometimes I have to be a bit trigger happy to get a good shot, cos sometimes the speed of the action does not allow me to think out each shot properly. I just in the proper position, quickly frame, shoot a few (if the event is significant). Else that moment will be lost forever.

    Wai: D30 is still so ex??? Thought D60 should push its price down??
    Then by all means get it. Seems like you've already made up your mind and just wanted somebody to give you the extra "push" which is evident in this thread. You won't be happy with anything less I would say. Good luck.

    Hmm...wah lao so ex....could it be because D60 is not really avaliable easily?
    I just got an offer for $2300 (thru PM), thinking about it.

    Never knew clubsnap got such high readership.

    Btw, when is this years convention? Cos sony introduced the f707 2 years ago at that meet, will they announce a new one this year? (if so better sell off asap )

    Actually, I was asking for input to see if it is worth it. Also hoping to get input from wai cos he walked the same path as I did.

    I do not have a lot of disposable income, so I will need to save money for this. Hopefully this will be a nice cool-down period to shake me off from being bankrupt before 21...

    its a paradox and a catch 22 thingie, about the prices of our beloved digicam falling and digital SLR more and more affordable to the masses.

    I agree to 'quickly' dispose of the 707 before it falls further and save for the D30 or other DSLR and lens.

    you need a macro lens, such as 100mm Macro USM, Megaweb using this lens

    cost abt $1k (correct me if i am wrong)

    i can use my 50mm + extension tube for macro, but that tube alone cos $80+ already (3rd part brand somemore)....however the focus distance will be fixed. the result should be much better if u use a delicated macro lens, if i remember correctly, i can shoot as near as 10cm with that 100mm, whereas with a 50mm + extension tube, the distance is abt <20cm

    Erm, not now, please. Maybe next time when I'm working and have no wife.

    What would be a low/reasonable/good price to sell my 707?
    Together with my B+W 58mm UV filter, 128mb memory stick, included 16mb mem stick.

    hmm...Presently the price of F707 is $1500. I agree with kamwai that you should keep your filter. You will need it one of these days.

    With the memory stick, if camera is still under warranty, a good price to sell would be $1100. What do the rest think?

    TCW S1 Pro at $2.2k.... so if buy direct from seller, looking at under $2k already.

    Hey, its under warrenty, and in very good condition also.

    Only worth $1100? Sure or not?

    You can't expect a 2nd hand f707 to be sold at 1300 or 1400 when a brand new set can be bought at 1500 right?
