I am in a dilemma in choosing between DSLR and PnS. I have used both of them. What I am saying it that due to the bulkiness of DSLR it makes me feel:
1) insecured because I need to guard the camera most of the time especially when I am travelling in 3rd world countries alone
2) attract more attention
3) quite tiring in travelling especially during backpacking
4) extra care, as we need to take care of so many accessories
5) most people have misconception that those holding DSLR are pro and pns are tourist
*And sometime I do think that because of the influence of the advertisements, I think we can categorize some photographers into 2:
i) those superb in equipment
ii) those superb in taking photos
For a compact PnS, I just put it in my pocket and I have more movability.
I do see some photographers using DSLR producing exactly what a PnS can produce. And I do see some photographers using PnS producing some very amazing photos. What do you think?
