    I've a friend who wins the Sentosa Flowers photo competition for 2 consecutive years using just a compact PnS.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    or if your camera has signs of nosebleed after the shoot

    or if you obviously try to squat down, not to get a better angle, but to hide the tent in your pants
    best reply I've seen in a long time. Pure wit and humour.

    I don't see anything to laugh at, whether it's handphone cam, PnS or whatever. More likely it would seem odd to me, but since you make the decision what to use, so whether it turns out good or bad doesn't really affect anyone but yourself. Personally, I'll probably be more worried what if shots using my DSLR turns out to be worse than those using PnS.

    I wouldn't laugh at this. With auto face detect and the depth of field you get from compacts, the guy's technique must be light years ahead of everyone

    Some compacts have "beauty mode". A smart brand would release a compact with a "XMM mode" just for the GWC's in SG... Focus on boobs, auto-enlarge the iris and kill the expression in the eyes and auto-erase eyebags from partying all night.

    Canon S90 is still a camera isnt it. However, i got experience that the people being shot prefer to look at DSLR camera than PnS.

    if they laugh at you, they are laughing at your camera. if they laugh at your camera, then they are a lowlife band of ken rockwell-hating measurebating GWCs who can't bear to have their photos trumped by a humble p&s. you go, girl, and show them who's boss!!!!!

    Only thing abt using compact for portrait photography is that harder to get shallow dof and isolate subject
    Photography is about seeing without a camera.
