a DSLR that I really need to buy (I'm a photonut and film costs are killing me)
I totally know what you mean!
In my country we have a saying: "no money no vices"
Anyway i had that same passion for photography,i had an old russian Zenith equiped with a Telescopic Zoom, i then sold all my stuff and bought a digital camera. Not the same but... now i dont need to have lab nor film nor other expensive equipment.And i can always choose the pictures i want to print...and its better for the environment too!
