    Default How long have you own it?

    Announcement of new DSLR models before PMA 2005 has caused a lot of discussion.

    Some happy because their preferred brand has come out with a new model.

    Some unhappy because their preferred brand has come out with a new model.

    Some unhappy because their preferred brand didn't announce a replacement YET.

    Some happy because their preferred brand didn't come out with an improved model with the same price YET.

    Some unhappy because their preferred brand come out with an improved model with the same price.

    Just curious, in view of all these. How long have you been using a particular model of DSLR?

    But I have my film camera for over 10 years already, and it is still going strong.
    If you shoot film then you have to gripe about your scanner. ha ha

    My DSLR is a SLR with a built in scanner.

    No, this is not a film vs digital war, both are good and good for different users.

    I've been using my S1pro till last Oct when I got my D70. Now the S1 is my stand-by cam. Funny thing though, the last time I took out the S1 to use half way through a shoot with the D70, my client though that it is a higher end cam!!!

    Is a 2nd hand S1 Pro a good beginner DSLR?I'm currently using a S5000.

    Why? It would be interesting to hear your reasons/experience. Just curious. Don't want to turn this into digital vs film discussion.

    Seem like majority actually hold on to a DSLR for at least 10 mths.

    Quite a number hold on for more than 1.5yrs.

    FIlm or digital is just a choice.. No one is any better than the next.
