To each his own, that still doesn't explain how the guy I quoted can relate
a) a person who prefers the extra heft as well as the other benefits of adding a grip to their DSLR
b) some unknown, unquoted source touting the "superiority" of mirrorless cameras because they have less weight
I have big hands, I prefer a big DSLR, perhaps he has small hands more suitable for a powershot, I just don't know but I don't want to assume that he likes smaller cameras for some superficial reason. Unlike what he's done to the rest of us who don't share his point of view. Having said that, he's not really giving us much to go on. If you understood what he was trying to say, then please elaborate because I simply don't get it and looking back at this thread, I'm not the only one.....
It's quite simple-most people who buy grips are newbs with a desire to make their gear look like a 1d. If a grip makes ur camera more comfortable good luck to you, but when you move to a full frame a think you will find the size difference is considerable.
As for my example-again its quite simple. Technology moves and trends change. Many schools of though believe mirror less is the future, hence big bulky dslrs will be old school and things of the past. People already boast of mirror less for being so compact and light-so what are people such as yourself going to do when these cameras become the status quo?
And has already been stated-your left hand should be supporting the weight of the camera-sounds like you are doing it wrong.
