cheers man! i have been thinking about saving up some cash/getting a small loan to get a whole new setup, possibly even a waterhousing if I can afford it. it's crazy how taking photos just started as a hobby - borrowing my mates DSLR to play around with and then eventually buying his old camera off him once he upgraded and now I'm giving serious thought to pursuing it a little more and dropping a decent amount of coin to get the gear to do so. I have lived outta home since I was 17 and don't have a whole lot to show for it so now that I'm back in with the 'rents for awhile and have the chance to save a bit of cash where I wouldn't normally be able to, a new camera could be just what the doctor ordered!
thanks again for the kind words dude
