just some things i wanna share with you all, be it a Professional or serious amateur and also hobbiest.
I'm from KL, i've notice lately when DSLR became within an affordable reach for these group, many thought that by owning these cameras you are branding yourself as "Professional". this trend also became very seriously visible during my recent trip to some countries.
And nowadays even if you have the top of the range flim base slr like F5 or EOS 1v, you are been look down by the DSLR newbies whom might own D100, 10D, etc whom think their DSLR are much superior than the SLR's.
I'm not sure what is point here.......basicly what i want to stress out is not matter what camera you use, be it a Point and Shoot, Range finder, SLR, DSLR we are all a family. Professional is not what type of camera we use, but what you can produce, thats important.
And one more thing is these DSLR newbie by try to cover the cost of hobby they would try to become a wedding photographer, this is a good way to recover your investment, but.......
Wedding Photographer- this is a very important role, because you just can't skrew up as this is like once in a lifetime for the couples.
