today i went outing shooting with a wide angle w/hood. i realised i had alot of attention.. it didn't happen when i was shooting with my 85mm. ppl were looking at me, looking at the camera. (u know such looks.)
then i went to mr teh tarik for a drink, service was especially nice. the staff smiled at me. and when i was sitting down, resting and drinking, the cleaning staff asked if i needed a clean on my table. the table had some stains and it didn't bother me. on normal days, such things don't happen because i drink at mr teh tarik quite often.

encountered such incident? big lens, big camera= good service?

btw, anyone kana suaned or scolded for having big lens and camera before? :p

I noticed a general trend having hopped from P&S to SLR.

Point-&-shoot Characteristics
Generally associated with tourists or noobies. Vouyers are associated with P&S. No one wants to smile for u and smile at u when u point a P&S at them. They will turn their faces aside or make an effort to cover their faces.

(D)SLR Characteristics
Generally associated with professional photographers. Arts photographers as well as artistic people with an eye for things. People have a higher tendency to flash their smiles at you or come up to talk to u (yes, it earned me a free Tram ride in Sydney!). You can be shooting in green box or [P]rofessional mode and ur pix are all underexposed or overexposed to the point of white out and ppl will praise ur shots as 'very good'. The subject in question can be blurred and the shot will be praised as 'artistic'.

Ur composition can be the most medicore ever, ur lighting can be absolutely off. U can bring a woman back to ur hotel room for some steamy shoot session and she will equally praise ur shots.

P&Sers will have the advantage of multi-tasking though. :bsmilie:

Prosumer Characteristics
The most overlooked and ignored group. These guys have all the friggin' advantage of taking great street-shots and candids and will trash us all to hell if their cams do not suffer shutter lag and deliver exactly the same picture quality like a (D)SLR with top end lens. :bsmilie:

Or that's what I'd noticed.

When I bring my big camera and big lens out, women seem to want to drop their dresses for me to take their photos.

So I dare not bring it out any more.

1st roll was so badly developed dat my fren took one look and told me to save the effort of printing... so, going to try again. :embrass:

throw the F5 at the bloke? cannot lah.. my fren's relative... tho i was trying my best not to laugh too hard in front of him when he said 'wah.. still got film camera?' after i told him dat the F5 is an SLR.

Chill my friend.... The Force is not with the one. He say obsolete? Put 2 tea cups of him, tell him to shoot with Manual mode wif ya F5 since film is 'obsolete', it must be a no-brainer for him then. ;)
