    Default Teens with DSLR

    Saw a video by RazorTV on Teens who own DSLRs bought by their parents or from working part-time jobs.

    Entry-level DSLR has make it more affordable to purchase one for personal use, but it is still a hefty sum of money, especially for students.

    actually its a sony + panasonic setup when i saw them last. Saw their team roving around a couple of my gigs.

    imo their onsite team more or less can be mistaken for those poly media students...

    could be a media thing tied up with Canon. I think this year is one of the most aggressive marketing campaigns by Canon ever.

    Next topic: "Teens with motorcycles"? Then followed by "Teens with cars" or "Teens with [insert expensive consumer stuff that is currently in fashion]"? What is the point of this reportage? Lots of talking, nothing really to say. What are the results of "splurging into Speedlite 570"? Razor TV? Blunt.

    I'm a teenager! And I worked during the holidays to save up for my dslr. It isn't fair to label those who got theirs through their parents as "rich kids". Have you considered the word "lucky'? Or fortunate

    Hiaz why this topic is back again.... photography shouldn't have age barrier.

    I had seen countless of working adults spending tens of thousands of dollars for pro rate equipement and shoot like crap. So why are we criticizing those teens.

    Good, make Canon/Nikon other camera companies richer so can put R&D and make cheaper gear

    yea, i think Razor TV takes this subject out of CS. Doesn't matter teen or not, I think the more people interested in photography, the merrier.

    Maybe bcoz it's about teen trying to look like a working adult?

    Carrying expensive stuffs makes them look good among their peers I guess.

    Any working adult want to look like a teen here ? To those teens out there, enjoy these times b4 it's all gone. But don't break any law ya.
