    If money was no object ?

    Simple question, not always an easy answer. I often ponder this as I browse eBay and the like. What would you set yourself up with and why ?

    Photography related of course !

    For me the answer is easy. I need nothing more than I already have.

    Like Brian I'm lucky enough to have all the user gear that I need...maybe a 10x8 Deardorf... As a part time collector a nice Alpa 6C outfit would fit nicely.

    I don't feel so bad about having so many cameras now

    I'd buy some materials I've never tried, like Brovira paper just to see its qualities. I would never waste my money on materials like that now due to high prices these things often get up to and possibility of it being fogged, etc. HIE and EIR film comes to mind too. Stuff like that, nothing fancy, just more inquisitive materials to experiment and learn about. But I'm fine now not splurging on things like this...

    There's nothing I really need. If I had money to spare, I'd pay someone to help around the house and with my little one so I could have more than two days a week to do photography ('cause those two days frequently get eaten up with non-photo things that are easier to do without Nate here).
    And an 8x10 field camera (without more time to use it, there's no point in getting one now, though).

    This is the only digital camera that I would consider http://www.photographydailynews.com/...igital-camera/

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
