Previously, ppl like to ask you. If mum and wife drop into the sea, neither can swim, who do you save first. But from what I sees, it's all goes down to the age. If you were young, your thinking/answer will be mum, cause wife can find another one. When you are older, you will think of wife, cause mum old age, after saving her, it might be a waste and furthermore, if your family got kids, wife more impt than mum.

I just think of this. What if, your wife, dropped into a river while you 2 are crossing and you are having a DSLR with you. Will you risk your DSLR, dump it aside and save your wife? The river water are fast in pace and you know your wife surviving rate is low. But the DSLR containing a lot of the photos of you and wife during the trip. Your DSLR might be pick up by someone and before you return to that spot. So, what is your choice? :D

When you bring your wife/gf out with your DSLR, your hand holds where more and more careful with which side? So, there still some comparison.

Wife of course ! Camera can still buy, wife cannot. Those pictures can still be taken again after you saved your wife, but if you don't save your wife , no more pictures can be taken. If you really don't save your wife because of your camera, wow, you're really inhumane..

If you ask this question, then are you considering that your wife is of lower value than your camera and the pictures? I don't know about you, but I also very much prefer a living wife rather than pictures of a dead wife to remind me of my foolishness.

Both can be saved. Your DSLR is inside a waterproof casing. But in the process, YOU will be caught by the underwater weeds and drown.

Actually it depend on how your wife drop into the river... accident or you delibrately pushes her in. if the latter... er... the answer is clear, save the camera and earn the insurance. If it was an accident, no matter how much you hated her, save the wife.

For me... I will save the wife... didn't care what relationship we have right now... she is a person and she must be saved to my best effort.
