    may not be a member of the church.

    honestly, he is just trying to show off his equipment.

    i know of some ppl who shoot with P&S, yet their shots turn out better than those with DSLR or probodies.
    so wat gives? its the person not the equipment.

    the equipment provides the specs to perform, but still requires skill to make it happen.

    power is nothing w/o control.
    i know a guy who shoot with a DSLR & yet cannot fight with a newbie with P&S...

    <--- the guy...

    shooting event and this guy was using a S1 pro (looks bigger than the D70), while I was using my D70. He came up to me and said "is that the D70? How can use such a small cam to shoot for people when they're paying you to do a job?" I just show him my S1 pro in my cam bag and replied "because the S1 pro can only be my back up camera" Felt really good after that.
    reminded me of the SPH guy with a 1DsMkII...

    My understanding:

    The D2X is king (no doubt), but that handler is more like a donkey.

    He's loves sour grapes, coz he did'nt get the job.

    He mocks others coz he's got inferioty complex, Big Gun, no job....tsk tsk tsk....

    He loves to tsk tsk tsk, coz his only friends are lizards and now they speak the same language.

    HE so poor thing also, please give him a chance to redeem himself, everyone deserves a second chance....come forward and we will embrace you back into our community......
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...

    I heard comments that the D70 is more advance than the D2X b'cos it has a built-in flash. I fell down on the floor and laughed

    personal opinion is that you should have told your MC fren, and ask him to arrange for the security to escort the bugger out.

    Since you are the designated photographer for the event, you have the right to remove anyone who's obstructing your work.

    You should have taken a photo of him as proof, i would have. Muahahahaa

    its true leh.

    the built-in flash of the D70 built-in flash can trigger the remote SB-800 for CLS.

    D2 bodies needs a SB-800 to be mounted.

    erm... its actually VERY common to hear this lor... and the best thing was i heard it being loudly declared in a cam shop by a rich-wannabe.

    mebbe we oughta tell the bugger dat the coolpix can take movies too - and d2x cannot?
