    Talking How many cameras have you bought before you settled on this one?

    My first cam is Canon A40 and just changed to Minolta A1 about half a year ago. I don't think I'll be settled with this cam, maybe upgrade next year or so. What about you?

    For me, I doubt I'll ever be settled. The newest gadgets always fascinate me!

    On the same note, sometimes I question myself: Am I more interested in owning the latest equipment than improving my skills ...

    think, even your skills reach the peak, the equipments will still evolve, so if u dun improve on equipments, you are still slacking... same goes for the skills...

    Should improve skill first before you upgrade anything!
