You have never tried to shoot birds in flight, fast indoor sports, these things take DSLRs, m43 cannot handle it let a lone a point and shoot.

What is this serious photography that requires a DSLR, is it paid work, or something that their life depends on, will they lose face?

No, it is no fun to try to take pictures of say birds in flight with gear that was not made to do it. You choose the right tool for the job, that isn't going to be a point and shoot in some cases.

Can anyone please explain what has happened to people these days that everything has become so serious, where is the fun gone?  Is it only over on the Connect site?

They have all gone to instagram where they can take their snapshots, over cook them and complement each other on their over processed images. I think they think that is fun so that is where they have gone.

The fun is still here but the cheese has been moved. Depends on what type of cheese you like.

I think your right, the less obsessed are having fun over at Instagram, I think you have identified what is wrong here for me.

I think looking at others over processed images and learning nothing may be good for you. I know a lot of people that don't even take pictures that just like to follow others. That may be good for you. Or you may be one of those that feels the need to have others follow you so you can feel good about yourself that others complement you on your point and shoot snapshots.

Everyone had their own definition of fun. Learning and discussing things is fun for me so I come here.
