Who says SLR's arent fun?

The only thing not fun about DPR is the incessant bigotry against SLR users.

I am sure they could be fun, and the only reason they crept into this thread is because it is most often DSLR owners who use the phrase 'when I am on a serious shoot', as if nothing else would be suitable.  But my question is, what is a serious shoot?

Brian

A serious shoot is different for every person.  There can be no universal answer to this.

What is serious to one person might be, could be a throw away session for another person.

It seems highly illogical to ask and expect a useful answer to this question.

Each time the statement is made, it is implying that only a DSLR could be used for a serious purpose, why do we need this shoved down our throats all the time.

Brian

There are many shots that can only be made with a DSLR.  Without more information, one cannot speculate what exactly the situation you refer to is.  But there is no more versatile camera than the SLR so it is not at all unusual to need such versatility to get the shot.

I'm glad cars don't have the same limitations as ordinary cameras, otherwise we would all have to drive a racing car to do serious driving.

Brian

Cars do have limitations depending on what you want to do.  If you want to do off-roading, you're not going to do it with a Nissan Sentra.  If you just want to get from home to work and back again and use as little fuel as possible then a Mustang GT 500 isn't the right choice.

If there were one camera that could be all things to all hobbyists we would all be using it.

Are you not happy with what you use?  Are you tring to find reasons others shouldn't be happy with their own gear?

Mark

No, they can do as they like, I am bugged by the implication that if you don't use a DSLR then you can't be a serious photographer.  In your scenerio that would be like saying that if you don't use a hummer then you can't be a serious driver.
