    Default Prosumer vs DSLR

    I am currently holding on to S6500FD, looking forward to upgrade to DSLR (D80 kit)

    1. Speed - faster reaction wit DSLR.
    2. Optic - better optical quality and flexibility to use different lens for DSLR.
    3. weight - heavier (in most cases) for DSLR
    4. cost - DSLR more costly

    This is a very typical question. When you are asking it, IMO you are not ready for this step.
    Main question: are you ready to invest money in new gear? You will need at least US$300-400 for new bag, lenses, filters etc. to reach approximately same zoom range.

    Here is a wonderful guide, it is a MUST in your case: http://forums.clubsnap.com/showthread.php?t=245883

    difference = buybuybuy....

    can't upgrade much on a prosumer :P

    hee hee... the 6500 is a pretty decent prosumer... it has one of the largest sensor on a prosumer camera

    Difference...? Alot...

    DSLR has:

    1) No live view
    2) No chance of squeezing inside small bags
    3) No option to switch off "shutter" sound
    4) No chance of saying "I'm really just a beginner...really..."
    5) No movie mode
    6) No retractable lenses (into the body)

    and the list goes on...
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:

    There are DSLRs with live view now. But normally on the higher end models.
    Small bags? Some prosumers are as large as a small DSLR, so not much diff there.
    Beginner? There's a beginner everywhere, you need to learn right?
    Movie? Get a video cam, they are better.

    And actually the most important thing. With a DSLR, expect to work on it to get a better image. You need to PP it.
