I have always been to starbuck, coffeebean and TCC for coffee... but I never saw XMM doing peace sign and posing for a shots
I must not have look hard enough... because my eyes is fixed on my wife... my precious... mine.... 7D...
Hahahaha... seriously... TS, you should ignored your friend or whoever who you deemed not passionate about photography but owning a DSLR. Not worth the trouble.
if passion is defined by the color red, then all photographers should buy and use this camera
Based on TS logic, if a poor guy shoot with P&S, and then win competition and get a pro DSLR , it means he has less passion than someone who never won anything and slowly slowly scrimp and save... Because suffering is needed for passion.
Sorry to cut, but my friend who is part of the SPF told me that the SPF knows what's going on.
It's NOT "real photographers" who are doing all these.
The sleaze industry are spoiling the image for some people.
Some ppl go KTV with DSLRs.
People go book those KTVs girls then... *you know what*..
You are totally drifting away from my original meaning and putting words in my mouth. 'Suffering is needed for passion?" When the hell did I say that. I said perseverance.
Plus "Based on TS logic, if a poor guy shoot with P&S, and then win competition and get a pro DSLR , it means he has less passion than someone who never won anything and slowly slowly scrimp and save." What?? When did I ever have a logic like that. I was comparing between those that save up for what they love and those that get pampered/spoilt by their parents.
Please check your own logic before claiming that that is my logic.

Erm... coming from a newbie k.
Now, if you dont try, how do you know you like it and you can do it and will have the passion for it?
You can like something but with zero passion, you wont succeed. However, how would you know if you like it unless you try?
And if you are not open to try, how do you grow and give yourself more opportunities?
Money aside, does it mean that money from parents to finance a camera for the child = the child cannot be a good photographer?
if thats the case, then since young, my parents pay for my school fee..... buy me books.... buy me storybooks to create the hobby of reading.... like that how? What am i?
At the end of the day, yes, there are people that may not have found their right path to their passion, however, they are still growing, learning... give them a chance to breath.....
The camera even if from parents, maybe they have to study and burn nights of midnight oils for them to score ACE in exams inorder to get that rewards?
So chill..... whatever is the reason for someone wanting to own a dslr or owns a dslr.... its theirs....
TS, don't so headache. Why not ask them to join you for shoots and build up their passion. You may find that you have new photo kaki, and fuel your passion and enjoyment of photography.
Coming from a teenager,
The reason for the sudden craze of DSLR is heavily influenced by fashion blogs like The Sartorialist, Fashion Toast and Jak n Jil. And if you look at their picture, they do take some really fantastic pictures.
Soon after, all the other 'non-hipster' teens start to get DSLR because of peer pressure and what not.
The difference is suffering and sacrifice, is it not? You didn't say it, but it's a fact that you implicitly mean it. Not sure if you are even aware of your own logic, judging from your unhappy response. If you can highlight other key differences beyond suffering and sacrifice, please kindly do so, don't just say "You don't understand me de" and don't explain what you really mean, I will happily point it out again.
You erroneously assume that a person who gets a camera from his parents WOULD NOT save up and scrimp if he didn't have such generous parents. Overgeneralisation is the loophole in your logic, as I've pointed out from the start, and you still persist in wallowing in it to push forth another agenda - as uncle catchlights correctly calls it, it is self-righteousness. Does putting others down haphazardly make you feel better about yourself? If so, good for you, but please don't expect everyone else to nod along and indulge you in your bad logic.
