Wanna get some peoples opinion on something.
Do you mind/allow your freinds to use your equipment ? I'm not talking about mates who just want to borrow an SLR to mess around with, but the ones who are interested in photography ?
Reason being, my freind needs to have a DSLR for college (photography module) thought it was odd that they didnt start with film but anyway. They asked me for advice, and spending the kind of money on even a cheaper second hand body + lens was out of the question (Cheap-ish Kit lens + camera will run around â‚¬350) for them so I told them they could borrow my gear.
Now while chatting to some of the people in my course, some say they wouldnt mind, and others have questioned my sanity.
First time I lent something out, came back covered in scratches.
2nd time, they lost the lens cap.
There won't be a third unfortunately. As much as I'd love to be charitable and lend people my things, I can't do it if it keeps getting damaged
