    boy...... I now fully realize what my philosophy teacher has been talking about....

    We do live in a materialistic world!

    I'm just flat broke (right now)= current college student. so GAS has left my body for the time being . I had to sell a camera the other day to fund film and paper for my darkroom courses .

    I didn't use it all that much (Fuji GW670III r/f) but it was a nice camera none the less.

    Oh, boy! So there REALLY IS a 12 Step Program! And it includes "selling a camera." To quote a real estate marketing advertisment; "I'm not familiar with that concept." How is that done? And, even with a Brownie? Although, I thought that you ate a Brownie, especially the ones with the thick chocolate fudge.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    The main problem I have with GAS is that it usually produces adverse side affects...
    such as my better half screaming intelligably for 10 minutes before finishing with "ANY MORE CAMERAS AND I'M LEAVING!" or "EITHER IT GOES OR I GO!!!"

    Obviously, this is a bit of a dilema.

    Equally difficult to cope with is the "IF IT COMES OUT OF THE LOFT, IT ISN'T GOING BACK IN!" gambit - which means cameras I have used recently are clogging up my car boot and the garage :rolleyes:

    Just tell me one thing, why does a woman need 15 pairs of shoes?

    Your nephew's attitude towards printing is part of what scares me about digital. People in the future won't have any idea how we live today except for those of us who do make prints (and keep our negatives).

    Hmm Maybe you should remind her that your cameras will hit harder than her shoes

    I obviously don't get the whole GAS thing... But I like the idea of keeping a spare camera around in case I need to defend myself against flying shoes. Can you actually use that as an excuse to buy cameras?

    GAS is like diabetes; there are treatments, but there is no cure. Sooner or later you will have to have another treatment/camera.
