Problem with this photography lark is there's always something pulling at the purse strings!
Oh aye! It's remarkably similar to running a relatively rare Italian motorbike in that sense.
Longer term, I'd like to do more with photos than just taking them, hence all the queries now. For now, I'm think I'm going to settle for doing minimal editing using the raw processing built into the camera whilst connected directly to the tv. It may not be calibrated for printing them, but it's by far and away the best way to view them, and I can then just burn them onto a CD to share with others on a pc or dvd.
