    in fact i've seen many of them outside amongst the streets as well, can't help but notice how they use the dslr, and you just know from the way the hold etc.. that they just want to be cool. im a teenage too, and maybe to others im like them wanting to be cool. its kind of annoying no? No offence.

    TELL ME WHAT YOU GUYS THINK.
    why should you need to be bothered about this in the first place? no matter what, photography is still a hobby to most people, why can't people enjoy what they like or they can afford?

    Do they really bother you with what they have in their hands?

    i didnt read everything but this reminds me of my school's photog club

    this guy has all the top stuff including the 85L

    and what he shared with newcomers of the club was that for certain shot the colour so nice was because he shot at 1/800s

    till today, he still havent learnt how to expose for subjects. covered a prize ceremony for an IVP track n field event, all the winners had no visible face. i remembered how he shot some for SMU pageant, 90% were underexposed again, some of the faces cant even be distinguished, this is no joke. well let's just say there is really this culture of gearheadism as nightmare mentioned
