    Understand the tradeoffs of each system and you will better appreciate the situation.

    It is a balance of what you value more. If you are perfectly satisfied with what you are getting from PnS then that is really what you just need.

    He/she already bought a D3100. But apparently thinks that shooting with a compact camera makes more sense than spending time preparing DSLR gear before a shoot.

    You can buy camera bags from most shops like challenger, TK foto, MS Color, Alan Photo, Cathay photo etc... Most shops that sells cameras also sells bags and most camera accessories shops. Can try sgcamera store, redotphoto and also artworkfoto.... There is also crumpler... Can try lowepro, think-tank, domkey or other brands of bags...

    (sorry if i am not suppose to name the shops) pls delete post or notify me so that i can edit if i violated the rules

    What's the point of listing all these bags in an unrelated thread?

    Actually hor... I think it depends on what you are into photography for...

    To be honest, when i started the hobby many years ago, I had secret dream of turning pro... Then I realised I too lazy to do it as a job.
    After that i thought i could just be an artist and shoot in my own lazy style... Then i realised I'm neither creative nor thick-skinned enough to pretend to be. So i sold off everything. That was about 5 years ago.

    Now I am back with a newly purchased 600D. Reason? Bored. Just want to shoot and make friends again.

    IMHO... best is to have something to shoot. Doesn't matter what you shoot with.

    Bro, my 1 body + 1 lense is really very heavy.

    if you only bring a camera and 1 lens it will not be that heavy.
    if you are passionate about making images then it would not bother you.

    if you are bothered about it then maybe you should take it a step at a time
    P&S > mirrorless > DSLR > MF > LF

    i myself use the camera that is best suited for the shoot.
    i use iphone/P&S/DSLR no money for MF and LF and RF

    Yes a DSLR can shoot sharper/colorful/contrasty imagines as compared to a PNS.
    But many newbie or perhaps gear head dont seems to realize this..

    There is a fine line between A good photo and A good imagine quality/sharp photo. The latter sometimes does not mean its a good photo..

    I carry cheap plastic lens (my whole set costs less than $1000..all 2nd hand). Shoots ok photos. Cannot go competition. but feel satisfied.

    Generally cheap plastic lens are lighter, too. They don't hurt your heart so much when accidentally hitting objects when moving (i am a clumsy person), or your wallet if you ever drop them. Hope that helps. Using Canon 50mm F1.8, Canon 28-55mm EF (this is a really cheap plastic lens which I don't know how much it costs). all very light. no flash, no spare batts, etc. so not much "extra" weight.

    Winning in photography competitions doesn't always mean you're good. It means you've got the shot that the organizer of the competition wants. In most competitions, the organizers are not looking for the best photos in terms of technical ability, composition, etc. They are looking for a way to get cheap photos to use, and they will state that they reserve all the rights to all the photos that get submitted and can use them without permission from the photographer (in some cases where they are not so greedy, they only reserve the rights of the winning photos, and if they are greedy, use the photos without crediting the photographer).

    So, if you don't win competitions, it doesn't mean you're not good.
