Why buy expensive big bulky Canon?
Mar 1, 2005

A good friend of mine who is a pretty good accomplished photographer of about 30 years said that he thought its sort of crazy/nuts to buy a big bulky camera like Canon's D20 when the kind you can slip into your shirt pocket is all the camera you need these days -- given Digital and all.

He said, that only about the top 3% percent, of really the best photographers can adequately use those big lenses correctly w/ that camera. (and)

That the smaller, carry with you everwhere, pocket size cameras are fantastic! And that's all 97% of camera users need because they do such a wonderful job.

And that w/ the smaller camera we would have it w/ us when we needed it but his main point was that the smaller camera's are really very very adequate. And he uses one very often, I've seen his shots, very good too.

I am deeply thinking about his comments, and wanted to hear from the troops. Take care and thank you.
