Some camera companies offer loans so you can try a camera before buying. Not sure about availability or makes in your area, but it might be an option somewhere around town for you.

By the way, it isn't the human race that is root of all evil, it is the love of money that is the root of all evil. The human race is not a cancer and I am not a disease. So there.

A bowl of shark fin soup can cost upwards of 100 per bowl. 10 basking sharks are probably worth around $1 million just for their fins. The key to solving this problem could be quite simple....

Mind you, its back fin and tail do seem to be missing. The last one had its tail cut cleanly off. Are basking shark tails valuable? If so, then yes, possible farming going on.

This is the 2nd basking shark washed up around here in the last couple of years. The last one had its tail cleanly cut off. I don't think this is a stranding, I think someone is killing them.
