Then he said "This camera is Canon one ar ?", i said yes, then he said "Digital one ar ?", i said yes. He said, "I also have one, costs $2800".

    He was from one of the BBQ seafood stall ...

    I am under the assumption that photographers could come from all walks of life... all levels of society.

    Apparently you think otherwise and shocked to learn that a hawker could own a camera. Would it be less surprising if the hawker told you he uses a Nikon FE?

    good! This shows that photography is meant for any ppl...a very healthy(can also be luxury) hobby.

    Guess no gf or wife will stop her bf/hubby from taking pictures
