Re: a bit confused: practicality of DSLR vs non DSLR cameras

If you go for out of box snapshots, you will be very happy with some advanced pro compact cam, and you mostly won´t be able to tell the difference between compact and big sensor cam up to full screen image size. There is so little difference these days in results. Ultill you step into very difficult scene with poor light, when some superior properties of that cam (DSLR or any big sensor cam) really kick in, you won´t see much difference. Sometimes It feels even worse for beginner, as he for example LOOSES sharpness across the whole scene, because bigger sensor makes depth of (in-focus) field so thin, that you will have for example one person in focus, and another person step away blurred, out of focus. So until you really want to step in the photography, you stay with better compact cams.
