I know that photography may be a hobby, just like collecting stamps, and at times it can be very expensive (just like collecting stamps). Of course there are the professional photographers who click to pay for food and their investment in the equipment is pretty much a write off as a business expense.

Considering the insane order load for the D800, I was wondering who are you, the people who converse on this forum? It looks like the same people create and reply to posts, so I'm guessing these people really like their D800, or really hate it, but the investment was made and for a minimum of $3,000 in the body of the D800 alone, there must be a great interest.

Are you doing this as a hobby? What do you do with the monstrous files created by the D800? Do you sell the images?

I'm an IT professional who's doing this as a hobby that pays back when people purchase images from my website. I would have done it without selling the images as well... Maybe the next career if I'll ever retire.

The image above is what you get when you squeeze an orange peel to a candle flame. An experiment with the kids. Someone paid a lot to have this printed large on metallic paper... don't know why. A Hobby.
