Dirt cheap! Not a bad idea at all. I picked up the S95 as a P&S for my bike rides. Carrying around the Dslr rig doesnt help when riding long distance. The S95 fits right in the back pocked of my jersey. Coupled with great image quality and its a win win situation:

Do it. I think its the best P&S on the market. Great image IQ in a sleek slim body. It has an F/2.0 lens on the wide end (no need to zoom in this baby, just foot zoom it :)) which produces some bokeh as best as a P&S can :)

Here is a close up shot to show the bokeh:

Yup that was a quick shot in my office of the case i purchased for it. Better bokeh than the Canon 50 1.4 ;) (let the bashing begin :lol: )

It does a very good job of producing decent shots. I think this would be a good replacement for your sold s5is :)

JD with your high disposable income, I will wait for the camera you are buying the group, and nice income selling those 25x$530 large prints, thst is enough loose change to fund your putchases, including the new zeiss lens.
Omar...nice that ypu are enjoying summer, hamburger and bacon is called sin city at smash hamburger joint..did you get the gitzo, not sure between you and Esteban's day trading if yougt one from B & H.
Aren, you are one big Hulk, look at new mirror less and interchageable lens PS.

Harm...you lucky guy should be posting more photos of your pretty wife.

Esteban, per Philippine law as an employee you should pay withholding based on gross, 30% I believe. The BIR will be after you, so before they garnsh your wages buy the Gitzo and 16-35.

that's when you have to talk to your work about splitting up those OT hours, either defer some ,bank some or get days off in lieu

you end up burning yourself out for free, one OT shift is the best after that it's a sliding scale downhill and not worth it ;)

My brother-in-law has that problem. Works for a restoration company that deals with insurance claims and private contracts. When we get bad weather, like all the rain we had this spring, he has tons of overtime dealing with stuff like flooded basements and leaking roofs. I don't know the numbers, but at some point he starts making a lot less pay for the hours. If possible, he takes a couple of days off in the same pay cycle so the hours aren't quite as high.

About the taxes, i work ALOT of overtime, when i'm between 0-11 hours they take 20-23% when i make 11-18 hours OT they take 27% when i get over 18 hours OT i keep more it drops to like 17-19% for some reason. thats why i average 24 hours OT a check. I keep more. plus everyhting over 9 hours is double time.

she told me yesterday not to disturb her quality time with the watch

she told me to buy the tripod already too last night

Monk3y method works! :shock:

I would put it in less OT just so you don't feel the hit in taxes.

I used to do a lot of OT in a previous job... then the taxman cometh. :mad:

I pay taxes on everything I purchase so I don't want to get taxed when I am getting paid

That doesn't sound right? You don't file/pay taxes at your business? :confused:

that's when you have to talk to your work about splitting up those OT hours, either defer some ,bank some or get days off in lieu

you end up burning yourself out for free, one OT shift is the best after that it's a sliding scale downhill and not worth it ;)Sadly, it's just not an option.. :(

Okay so you gross up then subtract the gross tax...you can, and I amsure, Famous is a major customer who you entertain regularly and reimbursed by the company...you can also make Famous as a consultant so you deduct only 10 % withholding...i used to receive small income from my xxxPhilippines, Inc company and get larger consunting fees from sister company xxxx Asa Inc.

In the USA, when you earn from your photography business you can expense the equipment cost for that year, so for JD's $13,500 income he can subtract the cost of the prints and frames and his camera purchase say his Canon 1D, plus lenses etc, so net he pays zero taxes. He can charge the whole Leica purchase, but must declare the resale as income.

Btw, JD's business is an ideal model to emulate...you need good lenses to be able to get good landscape images, his expensive filters likewise are musts for this business.

It still hot, but in a month we should be cooler and time to enjoy the outdoor. Will shoot, targets ths weekend with the wife to make sure she can still shoot bullseye with the pistols and rifles.

As for the disappointment part, clean it all up etc. without the thought of even making 1.00 out of it. That way if & when you do start to sell, it is just a nice bonus (to start off with at least)
