G12 vs DSLR for learning photography
Jun 28, 2012

Currently I have the Canon G12 and considering buying the D5100.
Am i missing something by using the G12?

Some people are saying i should get a dslr so i will have more options and ways to experiment, while others tell me not to upgrade unless i feel i have to.

I cant think of a specific reason to get a DSLR, but this might be because i got used to the limitations of a P&S\compact camera.

What bothers me the most about getting a DSLR is that i dont want to get into an upgrade frenzy of buying new lenses and gear i don't need, like a lot of people seem to do.

On the other hand i am quite curious on how, if at all, a DSLR will affect my photography.

So... should i get a DSLR or keep using the G12?
