    The best cure for G.A.S that I know is the realization that when you own the World's best, biggest, most hi tech and expensive equipment and your work is still crap you have nowhere to go, or have anything to blame.

    DO NOT (I repeat), DO NOT substitute for photography either boats or airplanes. The last time I filled both tanks, 100/LL avgas was $6.00 per gallon.

    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."

    Yep. See my reply in another thread to a pilot friend asking about G.A.S. - online we have an acronym, AMU, Aviation Monetary Unit. One AMU = $1000.

    It's amazing how downright cheap photography and all my other hobbies seem now after getting into flying, and I don't even own a plane, just rent (which can cost more per hour depending on how much you fly, but at least has no potential five figure maintenance surprises.)

    Right now in Spain they're holding the Running of the Bulls,
    followed by the Soiling of the Pants, and the Burying of the Idiots.

    Apart from that, my next purchase will likely be an EOS 1V to replace a 1N. Or maybe a Contax RTS II + winder. Perhaps a Contax ST + battery pack. Or maybe an EF 200mm f/2.8. But money's been very tight for the last few years. I find myself perusing the KEH catalog during down-times in the reading room, looking for inspiration. ...
    I make rules and excuses to keep myself from buying things I don't need. Doesn't the 1V have plastic spools? Contax SLRs are nice, but good luck getting one repaired if it breaks. And so on Or you can just walk away - that's kept me from buying lots of things I didn't need
    Those who know, shoot film
