In this case, I think the term "serious" is being misused. A better term would be "passionate," in that many of us who are not professionals but are nevertheless obsessed with photography, and want to create images with the maximum level of craft we are capable of. The vast majority of pictures are taken in a far more casual manner - not a damn thing wrong with that either.

Maybe seeing the word 'serious' and that you need a DSLR to do this thing is what bothers me, this saying only came into use in recent times and now everyone uses it, passionate in a more suitable word. I would say that I am a keen photographer as it takes second place with me, if I am out and about then I will photograph what I am seeing and doing, I seldom go on an outting where photography is the prime objective.
