    Well...ever since my shrewd purchase of a Casio EX-Z850 (absolutely tiny but produces dSLR-quality photos!) i take it every where (sometimes instead of my mobile phone!) and take zillions of snaps. I think i am on my 2500th picture and i have had the camera under 20 days!

    First it was a passing phase. Then it was an interest. Then it became an obsession. And now it is an addiction. I now can't imagine not photographing every moment. Is this bad/strange/familiar?

    As long as you don't start talking into your Casio this is normal. ;)

    As long as you keep it under control, it's enjoyable. Certainly not a harmful habit (unless you get beat up by the police for photographing them). In the two months of owning my camera I've gone through at least 5,000 shots. It's part of the beauty of digital - you can just keep shooting without extra cost.

    I think when you start sleeping with it you could say you might have a problem.

    Also, when you start getting the shakes after being seperated from your camera anymore than an hour, you're pretty much screwed.

    The only way to wein you off the digi cam is to insert film capsules into your anus for around 3 months. It's really uncomfortable. Trust.

    yeah i got prescribed some film capsules but they were the wrong ones - only APS but according to Wikipedia they need to be 35mm.

    I think my problem is impossible to cure.
