    - Be very focused about what you really want/need. Don't buy less than what you need.

    - Buy 3rd party stuff. Some are really good.

    - Buy used stuff. Learn to recognise good deals.

    - If you really want to earn serious money from photography, get out of Singapore.

    - SELLSELLSELL. Sell the car, sell the house, sell the kids, sell the wife, whatever.

    Pay for every good picture you take, you fund the hobby
    by yourself .

    If you're happy with what you do, you have to pay for it.

    Default Worker harder

    Work harder in your full time job, to earn an extra month's bonus - good enough for that wonderful lens or that brand new dSLR and more.

    Or, the student to do some vacation work like tuition.

    In other words, work harder than you need to - good for your career too. Sounds familiar?

    Excellent Articles on making money with yr camera on June and July issues of Photography Monthly. Best photo mag around. For those who are familiar with British photo magazines, Will Cheung of Practical Photography has moved over to rival PM. PM is now totally revamped. Go buy or borrow from library.

    Cheers

    You forgot a branch instruction (insert branch before "Until"):

    Branch
    If there is new DSLRs
    Work More
    Save more
    Buy new DSLRs
    End *return to main loop*.
