Just started on an DSLR and I found that my F31FD was getting under use. :(
Do you still use them for other situation?

I put my compact in my bag or pouch for "ad-hoc" purpose. :)

My compact was originally for sch project, but now, just for the ad-hoc purposes. :)

you can always bring it out as a small backup if you are lazy to bring your dslr along.

My Coolipix P5100 is always in my laptop bag and accompanies me and my family on weekends. With 2 youngs kids, it is usually very cumbersome to bring along my DSLR on when I go out on weekends.

and I often use it to take food shots when eating out.

I got my L14 for times when I cannot carry my D50 and gear. I still do bring them both out for trips and walk around. My 3 yr old daughter uses the L14 quite alot...;) Its really the ocassion and situation which warrants their use.

wait until you get married, have kids, and you have to carry your kids around. No chance or even strength then to carry heavy gear. No time also to whip them out for a shot...;p
:think:

good point

*starts making a list of excuses and arguments on why it is not good to have kids*

I carry a compact when it is not convenient to bring DSLR. That way, I will always have a camera with me ... :)

Yup, compact cam is indeed very useful especially those that have raw function. I seldom bring out my dslr already and often compact whenever i go.;)

I sold my Canon S3 for my DSLR... now I wish I never did! I didn't sell it for much so hindsight I think it's better for me to keep it.

HAving a compact sure is useful when you need to be really really FAST and inconspicuous ... and LIGHT ! It wasn'y long after I got my first DSLR that I miss my compact :cry:

It's really a lot easier to carry around a compact/prosumer rather than a DSLR, especially with all those accessories.
