I've been a lurker of CS forums for a while now so I know this is just the place where I can find reliable answers and different opinions.
I fell in love with photography when I was in secondary school. My father bought me a PnS camera, a Canon Ixus 50. A year ago, I decided to get a DSLR. After some reading up, I decided on the Canon 40D.
A year later now, I'm still struggling a lot with it. Maybe I'm just a moron at photography. I'm never getting what I want out of my DSLR. Everything is a little too intimidating and confusing.
I would peruse through CS forums and read field guides and it helps a little but I still haven't been able to feel comfortable with the 40D.
So... Should I downgrade to a prosumer before my frustration completely kills my interest?
It's just that, as a beginner, I want to be able to shoot without worrying about any technical aspects other than my eye. Do you know what I mean?
In short, I think my camera's bigger than I am. I feel like I need to hold on to something my own size, so to speak.
So what do you guys think?
