    Anyway, I spend as much as she lets me, plus what I manage to stash away without her noticing it, which is about .25$ per year. Still, at times, even I feel I spend far too much, in spite of my, what some might call cheapo camera.

    Roughly about 70000 Baht, converted to Singaporean Dollars, slightly less than SD$5000. Basically been getting a piece of equipment for each wedding I do. Just got a ZD 14 - 54mm lens for my brother's wedding. Probably the reason why I don't have a girlfriend and am broke most of the time

    Better he spent the money on equipment and things you can quantify (see) than on some other women....

    Take the time to brush up on your skills, and also, know your equipments... know the strength and weakness of your lens, and apply accordingly.....

    spent > 5k since started digital photography few mths back . But I am not so worry becos don't intend to keep all. will die if keep everything and continue buying. there r many in my inventory which i want to sell off, normally without much losses becos I mostly buy used.

    I buy equipment to use & to experience. So I don't attach too much emotion to them such that can't daer to sell. Wait till I "huat alraedy" then and behave like collector; buy buy buy & keep keep keep!

    time to renew this poll. think most of us have either doubled or more than tripple or spendings since our 1st post. its not accurate anymore. I have trippled my spending by now. in a few more weeks, it will be double of what i have now. funds already set aside for BBB.
