It's still a rarity to see people with dSLRs who don't use a kit lens, at least, most of the people I see with dSLRs are still using kit lenses and on camera flash. Not that the kit lens isn't capable, but I want to say probably only 10-20% of the people I see on the street with them are using something other than the kits.

Funny thing about this thread is, we probably are the wankers we're talking about. I could be the douchebag you saw, you could be the douchebag I saw, etc.

Meh, I saw plenty slrs back in the film days, then digital point and shoots because popular, now slrs are making a come back, in digital form =)

You have described me. I bought a 35mm SLR in the 70's. It was fully manual so I learned a lot about camera settings. Purchased compact digital early 2000's then a superzoom. I got my first DSLR last summer, a 50D. The purchase was for medical reasons - either get a DSLR or have a stroke caused by shutter lag frustration. Most of my photos involve action.

An increasing number of young parents have gone DSLR to photograph their fast moving children . Since models like the Rebel XS are $500ish, why not?

We should be happy for the DSLR user even if it stays on the "P" setting. I would much rather look at photos from a DSLR used like a P and S than something out of a camera phone.

I wonder if the development of better compacts (like Micro 4/3 or APS-C models) will kill this trend like good film compacts killed the original late 70's-early 80's film SLR craze?

For outdoor shots with kit lens or indoors with on-camera flash there's very little reason to prefer DSLR over something like a G11.

Everyone makes fun of people who buy DSLRs and leave them in green box, but a DSLR in green box still takes better pictures than a point and shoot in green box.

nah, i do believe thats its because you are "aware" now. kinda like what pilsburypie said.

that and they sell some DSLR at costco and walmart! consumer grade DSLR (rebels) will be more popular than that of prosumer grade (xxD and Xd). like everyone mentioned, most of them have the kit lens on the idiot mode/ green box.

now, when youre seeing people with DSLRs with the red ring/L lens or another lens thats comparable without the camera on idiot mode, then you can actually say that more and more people are using DSLRs.

You mean to tell me that one is or is not using a digital SLR depending on the mode it's in and what lens is attached? :rolleyes:

This thread kinda reminds me of a Sam Haskins quote:

"So now almost everyone owns a camera. Yet, of all the commonplace tools available to us, the SLR camera is probably the least understood and certainly the most under-exploited. All too frequently the average amateur will purchase a fine modern camera and proceed to use it for making the most elementary simple snapshots. This surely is like playing 'Chopsticks' on a concert grand piano."

Hell, if I could comfortably afford it, I'd put a concert grand in my living room. I mean... why not? :p

Umm, because unless you have a REALLY big house and living room it's a pretty big waste of space!
