    Being someone who likes photography,

    I'll will bring along a Film PnS to shoot Black and White.
    No need to worry about white balance.

    And to enjoy yourself at your friend/relative wedding by sharing their joy.

    BTW, do stay out of the AD photographer way when he's working.

    What are your thoughts on bringing DLSR as a guest to a wedding dinner.

    And I think Olympus have given me the answer in the form of E-P1, no $ to buy though
    If I go and eat I don't bring camera.

    Maybe a plastic bag to take home some foods.

    A simple analogy : if you are a makeup artist, do you when you attend a wedding, volunteer to touch up the guests' makeup if they have been done up correctly ?

    Wrong analogy... I shoot for fun, as a hobby... you're talking about something else which is not done as a hobby.

    I think you should bring camera, you can take photos of the food, or whatever things to general stock images, that should keep you busy for awhile and compensate the Ang Pow being given.....

    well, to be fair, that would interfere with proceedings of wedding..

    a more fair analogy would be, if you are a chaffeur, do you bring your workcar when attending wedding and volunteer to drive guests home?

    anyways, it is YOUR CHOICE, so long you don't start being obnoxious by doing any of the following:

    1) standing in official photographer's way to show off your camera bigger than his

    2) stand opposite direction from other people (anyone, evne p&s user) and set your flash to slave mode so that they will have very cool big unidentified source of light after they shoot photo with flash

    3) declare in a loud voice how much you bought your camera for, how you are better than the official photographer and how un-photogenic the wedding couple are

    the list goes on. the idea is, anything can be done, as long as it is reasonable.
