I, personally, wouldn't charge him to use it. He's not getting any profit out of it, that's usually what I decide on.

Cheers,

Well, would it be a good idea to get one of those birthday cards then? After all, it wasn't too long ago  Big grin.

Hope to hear more advices.

On Topic: I would do it as long as he does not profit from this.

Off Topic: I notice you also use the F717, would it be ok to contact you via email to discuss this camera? I am still trying to figure mine out.
Yay Pudding!

I would ask him to send you a copy of the card, and have your name credited under the photo. No charge for stuff like that, in my opinion. I agree with Scott: No profit for him, none for you!  Big grin

I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

I got that email too... I'm thinking about not charging as it's not really commercial use... What do you guys think?
