that is a interesting request, unless you know the people around here very well, i doubt people would wanna part with their $$$$ DSLR to someone they whom barely know with no $ as deposit, even if using an IC as identification.
Good luck anyway.

Strange if you have a SLR already, then why not just use your SLR? Two weeks is quite a long time you know, are you sure you want to bring a DSLR, and a hard-disk with you? Use film lah, then can don't worry about charging batteries and uploading CF card. And you will be more discriminate during shooting, makes you a better photographer.

i m not testing market or wat....
i m really serious abt it..cos i m going there for a student exchange programme...i m covering the trip as a photographer...ya..i will b bringing along my film slr for the trip..but it is offical photographer..n i dun get any $$ for doing so..even to cover my cost..so i wan to look for a dslr at least i can cover the exchange programme without worrying abt the cost after tat..
of course for my own stuff....n for my own enjoyment...i dun use digital..i will use my own slides...
for migrating there...last thing on earth....
ya...i just hoping tat there would b somebody who really believe in trust...
yes a dslr is not cheap...if it is cheap..i would hav invested in one earlier on...
yes...trust is very hard to gain in this world who is full of cheaters n things like tat....
but i still hope tat some kind soul would lend me for the trip...
i m a photographer...i take care of my stuff...n further more if the stuff is borrowed...y wouldn't u take special care for it....
as i say i do hope tat people will keep a open mind abt it...
when i first started this thread...i knw some people will say things both gd n bad...but i just went ahead...not to test water...but out of a need..n a desire..
with this...i still hope tat some one will still lend one to me...

I think you will have better luck borrowing it from your close friends rather posting here.
Or you can try to get a used compact digicam instead. Do you really need a DSLR?

i hav ask my friends liao...n further more they r using mostly film slrs...then....

I make you a deal.
NYAA will get a DSLR on the trip.
But I replace you to go as covering photographer. Deal?

If you are the official photographer, then they shld pay for yr film. I think it is more realistic fighting for that. If not, they just have to make do with whatever you can afford for your films.
