    trash.. the usual. my D300 owes your mini D40, that day i walked pass an uncle taking some model along raffles place evening i think.. it seems like he was increasing his shuttle count at an alarming rate more than compositing his photos.

    that's besides the point. perharps gen gap? more or less noob will feel left out in such events. isnt it so?

    Waaah, so jialat.

    I have gone to many outings, never had such problems lor. At least no one laff at my D70. Whether retiree or young 14 year old, no one really cared about what gear. All we did was shoot.
    There was once, I was the only DSLR user, 2 other prosumers and 1 compact.

    i quote one of my friends on computer games:

    "being noob is a mentality"

    i think it's pretty true, in many senses it is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    forever sarcastic. he probably be one of the reasons why i together with many others wouldn't go.

    truth to be told, i have met many nice CSers and in fact most of them never really like to go for these gatherings.. i mean its kinda weird a group of 7 crowding ard a peacock to shoot. just my 2 cents. canon photo marathon v good example of the class difference between the "L" lenses and the rest. you get what i am driving at?

    night86mare no offense but you are one tough nut.

    Agreed with that. If someone have any vehicle to bring us around, 'lagi' better.

    i find that most people in CS are pretty friendly
    i used to shoot alone too
    but after joining others for shoots,i find that its more fun to shoot together
    just try once,it wouldnt hurt

    Is this refering to the ModelShoot ?
    Find the timing bad, mostly around 9-12am.
    Lighting is harsh around this hour.
    Should have it around 1700-1930.
