He posts from Road Runner in New York City or the vacinity ... so your answer
is the US I believe. Either way, if you bought the camera for personal use
and plans to use it for personal uses after his extreme adventure, then
basically a very very small portion of the camera would apply for business
use. In general, I advise not trying to dodge the IRS for a couple of extra
bucks. What is the most you can save on a 30D and accessories? At a 20% tax
rate you might save $400? Is that worth forming a company and risking the
wrath of the IRS because of its pseudo legitimate nature (if the system was
used 5% of the time for business in practice, then that is only $20!).
