    Spent less than 1k on camera on equipment.. And i mean this equipment i'm holding..

    Camera bought 2nd hand from cs.. Lenses are from shops, cathay photo and all, and cost me less than 1k..

    And all are in serious working condition..

    Before the canon system, i was on oly system, and earn $$ and cca points through my sch.. lol.. and that costs a lot, the camera and equipment.. around $4k?

    so if i were to add, oly and canon system, it will be around $5k.. considered less than the average users around here liao.. Since i adding the 2 system $$ together..
    EOS 30D+50mm MKII+18-55mm IS.. What I use do not define me.. Its the photos that I take that will..

    I spent between 10K +++. But I think its a good investment. Not really doing business but its a nice outlet and stress reliever (in some ways )

    After spending some at the IT show, perhaps total amount is $2k?
    Not planning to spend much anyway, perhaps after i improve more and master some techniques.
    But it's true that you need certain equipment to learn some techniques.

    In the twilight now of whatever years that is left for me and especially where my body can no longer "cash in" all these mental cheques that my mind writes photography is one of the very few avenues left.

    Since changing over from a DSC to DSLR, I have spent heaps. In five short months, I have purchased:

    • D300.
    • MB D10.
    • AFS-DX VR 18-200
    • AF 85mm f/1.8
    • AF-S Micro 60mm f/2.8 ED
    • Sigma 30mm f/1.4
    • Extension tubes
    • Filters
    • Batteries
    • Compact Flash cards


    ......and now for a R1C1.....I think I will kick the bucket before I master to use all of them

    The choice is yours. A Suzuki Swift Sport with a small camera bag in the boot. OR a Toyota Liteace with photo process lab for a boot and a few Tele primes mounted on the roof (Hee hee Just dreaming).

    I still think it is the Swift. I still able to live with a desktop and my trusty laptop for image processing. I am still alone (T_T, intro me gals pls ) so surely my equipments all can fit in my car with a spare sit for passenger incase. I dun think mounting Tele primes on the roof is a good idea if anything like a branch hits the glass. It will be very painful OUCH!!!!
