Do you remember the one moment you made the choice to go from SLR to DSLR?

Do you remember the one moment you made the choice to go from SLR to DSLR?  I couldn't tell you the exact date (without a lot of effort) but I can tell you what I was doing  when I finally made my decision.

It was during the early evening break at a conference I was attending.  I had brought along my camera and was photographing the birds at the lake behind the conference center.  As the light was starting to fade an eagle appeared and perched in a tree along the shore.  By then the light had faded beyond the ability of my low ISO film.  It was then I decided to go digital, so I could change my ISO on the fly if needed.

That's my story.  What's yours?
