Camera-comfortable: The state of wealth and personal finances in which, even if you're not rich generally, you can afford the cameras you want. Used in a sentence: "I'm not rich, but I'm camera-comfortable."
It's a nice state to aspire to. I'm not quite there yet myself. Almost, but not quite. I seem to fret a lot about sinking money into cameras, and especially lenses (I still only have two lenses for my Fuji, after two full years with it), as well as printer ink and paper expenses. Or maybe it's just my Scots heritage showing. Or maybe it's conditioning, after many lean years B.D. (before digital) in which I struggled to keep myself in film and photo paper...and occasionally couldn't.
I hope to be fully camera-comfortable one day, though.
It's a modest dream, but attainable.

John Camp: "I figured I'd made it financially when I realized I could afford hardcover books. I was book-comfortable. This camera-comfortable idea strikes me as having wide application."
Mike replies: Oh right, good example. You'll appreciate this—for me it was when I could start buying full-price hardcovers of authors I liked so I would actually be putting some money into their pockets instead of doing all my shopping at the remainder tables. I have a longish but amusing story of my career as a book collector, but I'll tell that some other day.
