Save up lor, inbetween meals snacks can be saved, for me it's about $2-$3 per snack.

Walk home if possible, I do that after alighting from MRT, healthy & enjoy 'scenary' :bsmilie:

I save $1.26c like that in the morning & evening alone.

Alternatively, work OT until very late, claim cab fare, best, the $$ comes back next month & you save lor. And don't have to pay for transport back home :)

Btw, I still saving also $3.06 saved for my DSLR :)

if u could not get enough money to own it, get yourself enough reasons not to own it.

life will be much easier.

as the price of camera drops and as u save, i am sure u will have enough to own a DSLR one day but until then, focus on what your existing cam can achieve now rather than what it cannot do compard to D70, con't to take picture,
u will live a happier life :)

got cam...but want to upgrade mah

ask yourself what is your current finiacial status, and do you need a DSLR? if you are shooting short of a handful of rolls/ week, there is little reason for a DSLR (IMHO) as by the time you wish to upgrade again, it might not have serve your 2.1k worth.

jus my 2.1 cents worth...

Remember this is a never ending game, after D70 than what more lens and D80 ??. Buy within your means and always remember the eye behind the lens is the most important and not the equipment. It can be little camera big picture leh.
