    I'm just a beginner in dSLR. Yet, I found my way to it pretty interesting.
    First, I want a replacement for my PowerShot A80, I looked around and see the A570 IS ( I think around 360S$ at that time). Then I found that now I got quite a bit of skills and want to advace further. Then it went up to S5 and G9 and Panasonic FZ50 (I just intended to buy). But after looking at some dSLR, I decided on Canon EOS 450D. SO my intended budget shoot up from 400 ---> 1400.

    I don't about the future, may be I'll have to get some more things. ....

    BBB virus is contagious and infectious to anyone on clubsnap... Don't even need direct physical contact. Its only a matter of time. How long can you resist?...

    You only manage when you buy. Its a virus which adapts and grows....will get through all your defences unless you buy better equipment to protect yourself against it....

    I belief more than half of these who voted had already doubled their spendings as this Poll started in 2002. Any way to update?

    GAS( Gear adquiring syndrome) attack!!!
    Haiz, I AM JUST only a NSF and i dun even dare to count how much i spent
    Started in Sec 4 and scrap and work and save for my gear, how time pass...

    Sign of GAS
    -U start surfing the net for better equipment especially camera and lens although u might not need them

    -U start buying gear which u do not find much chance to use them. U just buy it cause its a good gear

    -U start checking equipment and camera price list when you are free

    -U always daydream or just dream only of how nice it would be for some gear to be in your hand and subconsiously U discovered that you have draft saving plan to buy it ( I got that and as I am poor this is very obvious for poorer people who have not much $$)

    Wah, seems like I have this GAS too. Just got my DSLR 2 months ago, and I've started spending money on equipment & lens(es), and tempted to buy more. Worse, I'm still a student.

    Working part time to buy all those gear. Not much time to use them also.
    Worth it ?
    Perhaps only the people themselves can answer.

    I also look back sometimes to think it it is really worth it
