    Woah!

    That sounds utterly badass!

    Whilst I have point and shooter -- it's only because I can't justify the cost of an SLR -- I'd loooove to have one.

    Ryan the photo is of the Naracoorte Caves near Mt Gambier SA. I sped the ISO up to 3600 then propped myself against the cave wall. The thing that amazed me most is the small amount of noise.

    SOme interesting post in this thread.

    I use a power shot myself and I love it. It is not very compact but it takes very quality pictures inside and out. I have no complaints!!!!!

    I use an Olympus E-410, with 9-18mm wide angle, 50mm macro, 70-300mm telephoto, 14-42mm kit lens, EC-20 2x teleconverter and FL-36R flash.

    Shooting with a SLR is not about the camera. I just picked any light camera that suits me for travel. Shooting with an SLR is all about the lenses you have.

    There is just no way to take photos like I do with a P&S. 9mm wide angle gets me shots of buildings and incredible sky that you never even thought were possible to get in a single frame. 300mm telephoto gets me animals far away up close. The 50mm macro gets you so close to objects, you can reveal details that are invisible to the naked eye. With a SLR the sensor size is also larger allowing for sharper images with better contrast.

    P&S has its uses. When I go out to party with friends, I'm not going to whip out my dSLR and start taking pictures. But its pretty much limited to that.

    I have a G10, very happy with it:



    It doesn't have the big sensor like an SLR, but gets close to having the same capabilities. You can even attach lenses to it. The portability of it is the only thing that stops me from getting an SLR, and the G10 fits in a smallish Lowepro case, which is great for going mountaineering and whatnot. The pictures are amazing quality, and that's good enough for me.

    I recently got a bridge and I'm very satisfied with it. Sure I've seen what an SLR can do but for my purposes I find this camera takes excellent pictures (the 15x optical zoom is very nice) and it cost me way less than an SLR.

    Aside I agree with whoever said the fake shutter sounds are really annoying, I turn off all sounds on mine.

    Just thought I'd spam you guys with Sitepoint's photography showcase thread for this month. The topic is Fire!

    We had lots of great shots, SLR or no, last month in our Flowers thread.

    Really good stuff everyone
