    that said, there are also many rich kids who are spoilt and snobbish.

    You have answered your own question.

    Sucks isn't it. But that is life.

    You can't insult poor people. Because poor people are always to be pitied and are never bad.
    Poor people are never poor due to their own faults. Always blame life
    Rich people are always bad. Rich people are disgusting. Rich people seem to get money magically without doing a hard day's work.

    Don't see a problem with it. If the boy has a talent, why not cultivate it from young?
    Some of the most professional photographers probably started even younger!

    There's a fine line between shock and jealousy

    (As for my reaction, it'd fall under both )

    Why are you shocked? If you see an 8 year old using a D3,will you get a heart attack?

    Anyway this 13 yr old might have asked his dad for a D90 or a 2nd hand D40 but his dad chose a D300 for him as in the long run it makes better sense? I have a friend who drove a Ferrari to school and he did not ask for it. His dad chose and bought it to him. Nowadays seeing kids with expensive stuff is nothing so you have to get used to being shocked.

    I once saw a probably primary school kid holding a D300, together with his dad @ Botanic Gardens. They were shooting together. Keep the dad company.

    My parents always tell me...

    "You are so lucky to have such good parents. Photography is an expensive hobby. But better than mixing around with bad company."



    Isn't the people here bad company? Spreading the BBB virus.

    actually, I do think kids are pretty spoilt these days.

    Seriously, I just have a baby girl and I think I will not give her many gifts when she grow up. If I want to splurge on her, maybe bring her overseas for tours and experience. My sister's boy has soooo many toys that he longer treasure any of them. Quite sad actually.

    I think material gifts should be few and far between so that the kid learn how to treasure them and not take for granted.
