    you will be surprised. Some people show up to shoot XMM with PnS... It is not about the gear.. but the XMM.

    same goes for car photography. A lot of pros as well.
    And as daredevil123 stated, the 'magnetic pull' towards XMM is quite strong, equipment be damned....

    So when you bought the camera, what were you planning to do with it?

    Did you use to take pics with a point-and-shoot compact camera also?

    im so sorry. i must have missed out.

    actually the DSLR belongs to my dad who is also new in photography. he havent have the time to shoot ever since his company assigned his dept with some major project.

    as for me, i "took over" to utilise it , as well as learn it since i have the time. didnt really plan on what to shoot. however most of the time when i do shooting, i shoot gatherings, outings

    oh no, when i use DSLR to shoot, i dont bring along PNS(hope i catch what your qn meant)

    Okay, that would explain why you're confused. As ZCA said, the question was meant to make you think what you used to use cameras for, so that you can answer your own question. From what you've mentioned, I think I can assume you've used your PnS like what the majority of people do - take pictures when travelling, take pictures at family events, that kind.

    Based on the pics you've taken so far with your PnS, you may want to expand on what you have been taking, or move outwards. I found my love for photography when travelling with my PnS and at cycling events. So that's why I got a simple G1 (which emulates a PnS closely, more than viewfinder of DSLR which I don't quite like/couldn't get used to). Over time, I found that I took more and more pics of other things. One day, I picked up a D5000 from BnS section and joined some outings and that's where my hobby really picked up.

    You gotta find your own way

    @rebelriot - here's my $0.02 ..

    i am a newbie as well, but i'll share with you a little tip i got from one of those fantastic websites on the internet...and it really helps me

    when you are walking around, close one eye and create a frame with the thumb & index finger of your hands... look through this frame and that'll give you an idea what your camera "sees"

    maybe people might stare at me doing this, but it really helps me to see what could look interesting when clicked with the camera

    i havent found what i like to shoot too
    next step is to shoot more. shoot until you find something you like shooting. pointless to buy more and more gear when you will hardly use it .... :P
    I probably collect lenses more than I take pictures

    OK! First things first! Go get a decent tripod. You will rely on it lots.
    Also, if you are planning to go for newbies outings, one of the "requirements" is to bring one as well.
