With rapid advancement in technology and ever busy "BUY AND SELL" thread in this forum, I am curious to know what is yr longest record of holding on TO the same digicam. And perhaps also why? Just a thread to show off your good "buddy. :D

Canon G1 bought it may 2002,been using it everyday except my off days.
Been thru 1 major operation and 1 minor ones,now looks really worn out and used with some a corner of the Lcd broken,zooming lever jammed and wordings on it faded..
Still going strong though..

Well.. I'm still holding on to my Kodak DC280 (2mp, 2x optical zoom, no manual controls at all). Had it since around 1999 so that's 5 years already.. Upgraded to a DSLR but still kept it around as a handy backup.

In fact, i'm going to bring it with me to Thailand later tonight. Bringing a DSLR on a 6 day SAF trip is abit overkill.. :D
