    Alamak...can things depreciate to $0? Intrinsically don't all things have a "scrape value"? If scrape value = $0, even the karung guni man also don't want liao...take up space only...

    My one and only digicam was a Kodak DC260. It was pathetically slow, takes 15 minutes to start up and 2 hours to take a picture. Bought it second hand for $500 (owner paid $1500 for it), and after a year, sold it for $100 with 8 rechargeables and 2 CF cards. What a loss. Given the rate at which digicams get obsolete (few months), it's a waste getting a new one. Second hand makes a lot more sense.

    hahaha...

    But the other side of equation is economics "supply vs demand". No demand... supply also no value.

    Follow the instructions below for how to resist the upgarde temptation.


    Do the following steps in the listed order:

    1. Hold up your camera in your left hand.
    2. Stand in front of the mirror and concentrate on the image of your camera.
    3. Giving your camera 20 gentle pats with your right hand.
    4. Repeat "Myy Preciouusss" in your most tender and affectionate tone.

    Repeat step 1-4 three times a day or whenever you feel the urge to upgrade. Also repeat step 3-4 until you feel the urge subside and once again your deeply committed to your camera.


    ps. you can also use the following steps on your gf/wife if you ever feel tempted to stray.
