    In my working life , I did not get more than 150 dollars per month. I worked 14 hours a day , 6 sometimes 7 days a week and hitchhiked to home under heavy snow , 60 miles at 2 AM to home every night for years . Within this environment I bought 6 Leicas , 1 Rollei , 1 Kiev 88. And cheapest one was 400 dollars. I did not ask anyone whether I should buy a Leica or not. I have 2 magnum photographs from these days worth 11000 dollars today. If someone believes something , he can get any equipment.

    George;

    Try to get a group of teens together to work in the dark! You will be raided by police to check out if any funny business is going on! This is NOT an option nowdays.

    I like your attitude. Now where do you find the 400 dollars cameras?
