    I guess it shld b safe to blame the BBB virus on equipment envy. Inevitable since we r human afterall. As many had pointed out, it's e end product dat counts.

    Small prints the blur should not be noticeable.

    Then it's your fault... you were shy... dun be... getting that shot of your CO is most important. Dun care abt the others with DSLR, really, must be thick skin. You need to just put that thought away, go to the front, quickly snap the photo of your CO shaking hand with the prize giver & then go back to your place. tat shot is most important to you.

    Yup, it would be more difficult for a PnS without external flash to handle the issue.

    more important is the resulting image instead of the size of the gear

    if your image is good and you only use a P&S, you should be proud of yourself
    especially if you compare with images from pro gear.

    I always carry a P&S and a DSLR.

    P&S to take photos.

    DSLR to show off.

    i strongly agree with this!!! have you checked out the post from a bro here using a 3.2 megapixel cellphone cam? shots and compositions are very good... i bet your p n s have more pixels and modes to use than a cellphone cam... in the end, it's the person behind the cam that matters, not the cam... i still have my sony sdhc h3... just want to share a shot, it might not be very good (not a pro here), but the point is, this is from a p n s.



    am stil using my p n s til now, side by side with my lomofisheye and D5000.
    Why so serious... Son?

    No the problem is not about how good one skills are. This thread has nothing to proof but a man's bravado hurt.

    Both the cam and the person matters in the final output of a photograph. However, if you are talking about composition ALONE, then yes, the cam makes no difference, because the camera cannot compose for you.

    Lenses MAY make some difference in composition

    Was speaking to my boss in the office today and yesterday's event came up. Apparently he was expecting my to bring a DSLR to the event when i told him that i was bringing my own camera. When he saw my cam, he stunned and din say anything else.

    P&S cameras are designed for certain usage, so are DSLR... There are also many well known photographers using P&S to gain fame because of their works. Pointless to say P&S is inferior and I think some image quality is just as good as DSLR. Need to know what is needed, your own preference and which equipment to use in specific environment. Just like some cameras produce more vibrant colours but never come close to reality,some people will simply not like it or even condemn the color as fake. There are 5 scenarios and is applicable in everything, including photography or passing judgement on others :
    1) Don't know that we don't know - hopeless
    2) Don't know that we know - surprises, excitement or talent ???
    3) Know that we don't know - read up, ask,search google,take more pics to improve
    4) know that we know - damn boring in life and can become arrogant
    5) lastly pretend that we know when we don't know - highest form of self deception
    Just bought a P&S, even though I have DSLR and definitley need it for the kind of environment that I need to take pics of. Why bother about other's opinions ? One lesson learn,avoid judgemental characters, you'll be alot happier.

    First of all, do you even know y your photos got blurred? If you do, then you'll understand why DSLR/PNS doesn't matter alot.
