    Wrong answer.... The correct reply should be "Laser gun!", then point your finger and shout "Pew! Pew!"

    I'll feel inferior in such case as I'm only carrying a Prosumer.. But noticed a lot of youngster (17-20) carrying D-SLR everywhere nowadays.. Makes me wonder is it really passion or is it more like a trend to them..

    But anyway, back to topic, I'll smile at the fellow photographer..

    Nothing wrong with carrying a smaller camera wat. Why feel inferior?

    I always thought that the youngsters I see in town with DSLRs are design students, most of them look like the art school type to me.

    And to answer the threadstarter's original question, I silently acknowledge the presence of the photographer. No point smiling or being overly friendly, people might get the wrong impression

    haha will feel weird ma, like kinda out of place like that..

    As for the case abt youngster carrying D-SLR, I'm not talking about those NAFA or Laselle's student, but never mind the issue cos' the terms/names might not be very nice, as I really cant find a more diplomatic term for it..

    Haha, on the otherhand, I feel more out of place carrying a big camera. When I was using a consumer level DSLR, I used to joke with my friends that those hobbists you see around with excessive gear, are overcompensating the size of their lens for something else. (Don't flame me for this comment, we made this joke amongst ourselves based on actual people we know who are insecure about their photography gear and treat the hobby like an arms race )

    Now that I have upgraded my camera, I don't bring it out as often, if not sure kanna suan by my friends

    Ask that person how much he/she paid for it. If cheaper, say I got mine cheaper and you kenna chop carrot head. If mine costs more, just 'tiam tiam' walk away, cursing and swearing.

    By the way, all my camera bags are ENORMOUSLY BIG, how big is the TS's definition of 'big'. My biggest looks more like a chest, but can be carried around like a bag. My smallest bag is a Domke J-1.

    Agree, what's the deal with carrying a DSLR.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    i rarely do smile at them unless they look at my direction too .

    dslrs are nothing new. its like replaced PnS nowadays. isee even lil kids using it.. lil kids i mean primary school aged.. 10yrs or so..

    i saw this girls using it too... i dont think they were serious about photography..

    also.. DSLRS are something that is part of learning today. I have a cousin in NAFA and my sis in LaSelle SIA college of the arts, both taking arts but their foundation year requires them to learn about photography which is compulsory and they get one . in my case, both my sis and cousin borrowed mine...

    More like a trend... They think they'll look more pro and take pictures that look pro.

    Emphasis on the "think".

    I'd be more interested in the guy walking around with a 30-year-old Leica.

    If i saw a fellow photographer (with big telephotos), I'd go up to him and ask:

    'Can I touch your lens? '
