    ok, lesson learnt. next time, be bold and more thick-skinned lah. when i attended zpop concert and new paper new face years ago with a p&s, i make sure i go as close to the stage as possible to get decent shots! go as close as u can, avoid blocking other photogs, and use ur flash.

    Ya, agree with lesson learnt. normally, p&s can hoot such. IIRC stage normally lighted during award presentation, unless someone forgot to switch on the lights

    Dee-toe!

    Learn the limitations of the equipment and work within those parameters.

    Since you're assigned, be focused and get the job done. Dun care what cameras others using, or even if they burst out laughing. Just ignore and I'm sure you'll get better results next time.

    Actually P&S can do very good shots even in such enviroment, which is why these cameras are known as P&S mah .

    I was using my Lumixs to SSS before I got my DSLR, not because the Lumixs are no good, just that I want to be more versatile to explore more shooting styles. P&S are 1 camera stuck with that fix lens to do all but with capability till a certain extend only.

    no, because i know that there are really good photographers out there who use p&s

    the problem lies with me, if i cannot take good pictures, unless my camera is limited by the circumstance.

    i get what you mean. But when does it become the camera's limitations and not my own skills?

    e.g.
    when u have to shoot at very high iso's in low available lighting only to shoot moving objects. then u would be better off shooting with a D3 (or equivalent) and a fast prime lens instead of a p&s.

    if you could not have done better, and you know your equipment inside out

    to be fair, a p&s is much easier to know inside out, it has fixed lens, fixed range of settings to a certain extent.

    but that is another matter altogether, being intimidated or feeling inferior should never be an issue. there are people out there who have nikon d3, trinity lenses, they produce nonsensical shots. there are people out there using lx3 or similar p&s, they produce photos worthy of applause.

    that other day, i came across a photographer from amsterdam who uses an lx3 to take sunset shots.

    link2

    i'd wager that there are dslr users that cannot produce such results and composition, even given the same scene and timing.

    emphasize the correct things, equipment is important, but not that important, when you get that clear, and you know that fact.... life becomes a lot easier.

    Don't feel bad about DSLR next to you when you shoot. I went through something similar about 4 years back.
    Imagine being asked by a friend to cover a wedding party in Bintang and you only have some old equipment from 20 years ago. I covered the wedding with a Minolta film 505SI super with a single 24 85 lens, an old Sunpak 622 handle mount flash and about 20 rolls of film. As I was preparing to shoot, a few other friends of the groom came over with a plethora of Nikon and Canon single digit bodies and lenses with front elements bigger than my palm. Looking at my equipment, some of them looked shocked at the lack of "Pro" equipment and lenses and even said it out loud. I just kept my cool and shot and shot the standard set of pics expected of me as well as some more artistic ones of the settings. End of the day, still got some of the better pics that day and my friend was pleased with the results. Most important point right?
    Equipment doesn't make the photographer, just remember that next time.
