    my mum saved for me !

    a DSLR kit is just the beginning of your purchase..after that usually will follow up with a flash,faster card,battery grip,fast lenses,camera bag,tripod,bounce card etc...

    Never ending !

    The real pleasure comes when you saved the $ yourself and buy your own stuff, you'll treasure it more.

    For me? I'm happy with a Coolpix 4600

    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    I work during 3 school holidays, sec 2 to sec 4, to buy my first SLR, a yashica FX-3 with 50mm lens. I'm still using the camera occasionally.
