    Here is the comment I often hear about DSLRs.

    If someone with a P&S shoots better photos then your DSLR, they will comment that DSLR is not necessary for great picture. But if however, your DSLR produces better pictures than their P&S, then they will be quick to point out that you have a DSLR.

    And I’m hearing this same comment from the same group of people around me over and over again. I wonder is this due to ego issue, b’cos if they capture good pictures, they will credit to their superior skills, else for their lousy pictures, they just conveniently put the blame on your “expensive” DSLR.

    Interesting isn’t it??

    I thought wedding photographer should be using semi-pro or pro camera such as D2H, D2X or 20D, 1Ds kinda cameras.

    I didn't ask him why he is using a consumer dSLR as I dunno much about SLR yet, dun want to embarrase myself.

    Any comments???????
    not long ago, the nikon D1 was considered a pro DSLR. now the D70 is superior to the D1 in many ways, but is labelled a "consumer" camera, just for the sake of nikon's marketing strategy. make no mistake, the D70 is a perfectly capable "pro" camera, and of giving "pro" quality results. the rest is up to the photographer. if you are looking to buy a DSLR, you can't go far wrong with the D70.

    Of course! The camera doesn't matter. Use a F601 also can. It's the person which counts. Good photographers don't have to specifically use "pro" expensive cameras.

    U can use a D100 or something and be terrible at photography.

    Just wanted to share something. I once use a Sony F828 to take a wedding dinner. The client was satisfied and never complaint. I was paid on time and with a tip as bonus.

    So this is the one with T* lens,

    I don't look down anyone with whatever camera the use, is the pictures that count.

    Anyway, why should your client complaint?

    I only can't stand people keep boasting about how good is their camera or lens.

    Iknow of a photographer who uses a Canon 300D to take fotos for SM Goh and the ministers. Are you implying that the D70 is not as good as the Canon 300D?

    In this meritocratic and materialistic society, most people are caught up with what money can buy, even to the extend of what appears to be 'professionalism' and 'respect'. In photography, most people are too caught with the equipment, the theoretical aspects of it; than the art itself.

    I just like to let people know that using D70 can charge $1K+, why use top of the range DSLR and charge lower?

    His works good or no good, leave it up to others, I also hear many people tell me that they can shoot better than compass photographers, I just listen and smile.

    A few of my couples tell me that they like my works more than the studio works, some even is works of independent studio, so what? I just said thanks for their compliment, and life goes on.

    yea well the impression I got was that you're saying he's good and I was just posting my experience with him from a consumer POV.

    nevertheless, your other points are noted
