    according to my wie, the best way to hide it is to put it into your coat sleeves and yhen putting it into the closet. now, i have to go up and see what she is hiding from me.

    I never hide a camera, usually tell her than I'm going to buy one (or one lens, or whatever). She usually disagrees, as she thinks I should be able to do everything with one camera and one lens.

    On the long term, I'm not sure she's wrong, but she would not agree on the camera I'd keep : my most essential one is the Rolleiflex, while she thinks the EOS3 "she" bought me (the one we bought while agreeing about buying it) is the only one I should need...

    Of course, I usually get the "silent treatment" when she strongly disagrees (she kept "not knowing" about the Yashica Mat 124 for one year :-D )

    My girlfriend (no wife but we have been together for 14 years, so practically a wife) photographs herself and I have brought her stuff. But once I brought a LPL/Saunders 4x5 enlarger and did not tell her. I would not say I really hide stuff from her, not in the real sence of hiding, but we men do like to go discussions out iof the way. That is just the way we usually are. That is the thing which women tend not to understand. I hope I am allowed to write this without someone cutting my head off. Anyway my girlfriend has never mentioned a word about the enlarger, and it is stored right next to our bed.
    Mmm... it makes me wonder?!?

    If you think you can hide something from your wife, you must be newly married.

    They like sleeping on the sofa too. It's just like going camping!

    I tried that once, the results were not very pretty!

    Seriously, do not hide it - discuss it. My wife wants to buy a new television, so we discussed it. She knows I would not have been thrilled to come home and find a new TV in the living room. Big surprises are not usually welcome, and even little surprises can cause disagreements. For example, we had one artificial Christmas tree, it's perfectly fine if you like that sort of thing. I mentioned getting a real tree this year. I come home the next day and there's a NEW artificial tree in the room. We now have TWO artificial trees. I would have preferred talking about that in advance. What are we going to do with the other artificial tree? We also live in a one-bedroom apartment so space is limited.

    When there are other more important things to think about (like raising a child or just paying bills on time), items which are basically luxuries must be put on hold. I mean, if this purchase wasn't going to be an issue, you would not be thinking about how to hide it, would you?

    :scratches head: are the new artificial trees made of real wood now? LOL

    Suggest not comparing her purchases to yours, trust me, unless you like sleeping on the couch. The problem isn't trying to hide it, the problem is covering the financial record of the purchase. Hey, 10 bucks, 20 bucks here and there, after 6-8 months, there you go. Then
    you can safely buy and tell your wife you bought it from a guy for pennies on the dollar cause its broke and your going to fix it. Then sit at the table with some micro screw drivers and play around a bit. There you go "it's fixed!"
    You have a baby coming however and you need to think of that. Responsible suggestion, sell everything you have not used in last 8 months. Your baby is going to need it. Besides I feel hassie's really are over rated. It's not all in the camera, it's mostly the person behind it.

    Mostly the person behind it can afford one because they are talented and successful and the ones who aren't don't have money to sell and print their hassy images especially after buying the camera at 3 times the price, haha I consider Leica as Hassleblad owners the same, they may be good photographers but it isn't because of the camera, they just think it is and are willing to pay out the a$$ for that delusion haha...

    Gee, she not only decides that you only need one camera and one lens, but also decides which one camera and which one lens. And then they talk about parity! Try to tell her she only needs one dress, and which one
