    Hi,

    When I started free-lancing, prior before that, every mth save S$100, for the 300D.

    After that, I save up from every assignments for flash light...etc

    For S$550, you can get a D30 now. Someone in the BnS forum selling at S$550.

    Now I am trying to save for a 10D secondhand.

    Regards

    no point trying to get a old dslr now, the shutter mus be beaten up already. start saving for a brand new set already. why save so hard jus to buy something that someone has used it ?

    save up for a brand new dslr.

    haha. same here. seen some with big toys, but their pics turn out crap.. anyway. theres nothing we can do about them really. but what i do is to outcast them. unless the "buy" me into their group with the biggest lens. but i will still encourage pple to work for their thiings they want.

    at the end of the day, when u pay for ur goods, u will feel that its money well spent. but after getting the dslr, dun get discouraged by the image it first produces. the camera and the photographer need to have time together working together and exercise together to produce wonderful pics..

    be humble and u will learn the way of the Force...
