i can't help but notice that there is an increased sighting of people (of adolescent age)
lugging their DSLRs over their necks in town. They are usually in groups, hanging around, walking around, socialising, "partying", window shopping, people watching, chatting etc, doing everything except shooting. They are usually spotted with the entry line DSLRs such as 1000D, 450D, D40, D60. This could be due to the lower cost of owning a DSLR, greater awareness on photography, increased support from educational institution, or even clubsnap. It just reminds me of the good old marina/centrepoint kids days (w/o the fancy DSLR of course) but with a new gadget.
No pun intended in this msg, just like to voice out something which i noticed.
