    Who cares what you use? Let your photos do the talking.

    Oh btw I have seen a "pro-looking" photographer who doesn't know how to hold his D3 and 24-70.

    I totally agree with you. Why does anyone bother whether "xyz" 's son / daughter is driving a Porsche, using Canon D1s Mark 17, living in a bungalow, what is it to them and how does it affect their life?

    For me, even if their photos suck, is also a non-issue.

    Why this topic is back again and again......?

    High end gear???? Please take a walk around NUS carpark and see how many Posche own by those students.

    I really don't understand why ppls are bothered about this??? If you are bothered, then you should asked yourself why you took up this hobby.....

    would ya'll count a 19 year old with 7D + bg + 17-40 high end ??
    if yes, i dont wana go out anymore =)
    if no, i'll upgrade

    just kidding....

    well, for me, i fund my own hobby..only my 1st camera was sponsered..since then, lens, flash and the new 7D was all work part time assistant till now continuing and pay it off.
    i have to admit i raelly envy those who open their mouth 1st camera 5dmk2 or so on..

    but then again, i just take it as everyones different.

    indeed some are really totting bigger guns with lesser brains but then , hard to say.
    for me , come across, just laugh it off then..
    not that im trying to say myself pro or wat, im not i admit.

    but sometimes i feel those lucky ones, really needa know, how much we put in , to get our gear and stuff, not just ask and get

    in my small group of friends, there are indeed some who just thinks, dslr gives better IQ so gettit, but really small handful are intrested to learn and thats where i can see the big difference

    just my 2c worth or lesser =)

    XMM = Xiao Mei Mei, a term in Mandarin.

    It refers to basically young females (anything from a toddler to even someone in their 20s). However the term these days carry a little hint of perversion in the same way you'll think of "Co-eds" and as such is used to describe females in their teens or early 20s. Inference can be easily made as to which usage is intended from the context of the conversation.

    Traditionally, "Mei Mei" is an informal term for a younger sister, much just like mummy being an informal term for mother. It is also used outside of the family and can be used to refer to any younger girl, with a hint of warmness and informality. "Xiao" means small / young in general and is added as emphasis and used sometimes together with "Mei Mei" to refer to a young (likely pre-teen) female.

    Sure it matters who's got the biggest stick, but it matters a helluva lot more who's swinging it.

    come on people - get some perspective !
    True.

    Not really fair to judge as some of these kids may have purchased their gear with their own money earned through jobs or from saving up for a heck long time.

    What about young kids who play music on instruments like pianos that cost a few grand?

    By snapshots you meant abstract art taken by some child prodigy and future Picasso of the digital age?

    This photo is taken by a young lady using DSLR for the 2nd time (D300 + 18-200mm).

    So don't judge a book by it cover.

    Initially, I thought it refers to Xtreme Makeover Models... And I thought wow, what a bunch of perverts we have here!?
