iffer: The flaw in the photographer're reply is in the first paragraph
" Wedding season only last about 4 months here, so I photograph an average of 20 weddings per year"
And then shows how they have try to survive on the money made IN THOSE 4 MONTHS. What are they doing the OTHER 8 months of the year? By Nikki's argument, sitting around watching tele... maybe go fishing...

Maybe Nikki should find other (interesting, rewarding) work for the rest of the year, and then the photography session prices would be realistic for the time, materials, equipment and skill put into them.

To turn it around - lets say you take your camera in for a service and the guy is like "well you know, these days the cameras are so reliable... only get a couple in a year for repair now.. got bills.. and rent... and all that fancy computer analysis stuff out back... so that will be $9,000 repair cost - can pick it up tomorrow if you like... "

Just saying how even the reply looks to the other side...

ok, 760 replies I should have figured someone had made this point..
I just believe Nikki sunk her case in the opening line. If she had said "it takes a skilled professional 10 days with very expensive equipment to produce your album" and maybe if she really wanted to go into detail, show annual costs for gear/infrastructure divide to get daily overhead costings then show she was just a "reasonable" wage for those 10 days (given she is an professional artist/craftsman).

Lupti: 1080p24? The old SX1 IS had 1080p30. Geez, shove 24p up your ar*e, Canon. FZ150 offers 50/60p and you come up with 24p? Fail.

Yes the manual indicates there is a hotshoe under the top cover...
