    Point-&-shoot Characteristics
    Generally associated with tourists or noobies. Vouyers are associated with P&S. No one wants to smile for u and smile at u when u point a P&S at them. They will turn their faces aside or make an effort to cover their faces.

    (D)SLR Characteristics
    Generally associated with professional photographers. Arts photographers as well as artistic people with an eye for things. People have a higher tendency to flash their smiles at you or come up to talk to u (yes, it earned me a free Tram ride in Sydney!). You can be shooting in green box or [P]rofessional mode and ur pix are all underexposed or overexposed to the point of white out and ppl will praise ur shots as 'very good'. The subject in question can be blurred and the shot will be praised as 'artistic'.

    Ur composition can be the most medicore ever, ur lighting can be absolutely off. U can bring a woman back to ur hotel room for some steamy shoot session and she will equally praise ur shots.

    P&Sers will have the advantage of multi-tasking though.

    Prosumer Characteristics
    The most overlooked and ignored group. These guys have all the friggin' advantage of taking great street-shots and candids and will trash us all to hell if their cams do not suffer shutter lag and deliver exactly the same picture quality like a (D)SLR with top end lens.

    Or that's what I'd noticed.

    good observation and that's what i noticed too.

    Aiyah, big lens or not, as long as you lug/shoot a (D)SLR, u WILL get attention wan, either from security guard, passer-by or potential snatch thief.. Even more so when your lens is some big momma.. Admit it lah, u also check out others' cams when u walk pass rt?

    then i went to mr teh tarik for a drink, service was especially nice. the staff smiled at me. and when i was sitting down, resting and drinking, the cleaning staff asked if i needed a clean on my table. the table had some stains and it didn't bother me. on normal days, such things don't happen because i drink at mr teh tarik quite often.

    encountered such incident? big lens, big camera= good service?

    btw, anyone kana suaned or scolded for having big lens and camera before? :P
    So logically if you carry a small camera with a small lens, you will have to sit on the floor to drink and wash the cup too?
