I think that the tide has turned....

    Hey all,

    I popped along to Floriade yesterday, to grab some piccies of the flowers,
    as did quite a few thousand other Canberrans and tourists. There were two
    things that really grabbed me:

    1) As I was walking around with my fairly large camera gear (compared to
    the average Joe), which comprises D30 with grip, -055 tripod, 70-200L,
    50/1.8 and 24-85, people would look at what I was doing. When I then picked
    up the tripod, people would go to the same spot I was, and look for the same
    image. My girlfriend noticed this phenomenon too. I find it particularly
    strange as I don't think I took a single decent image all day. The light
    sucked, the displays weren't great, and I am better at action photography
    than being creative.

    2) ...and this is where the tide has turned. I believe that at least 70% of
    the cameras that people were using, were digital. Only a few DSLRs
    (including a few 300D's, which isn't bad considering they were available
    from Fri), and an amazing number of other P&S digis. This is a mammoth
    change from last year, when most of the cameras were film P&S's. (it is
    probably a good thing that people aren't paying for processing after they
    see how poor their photos are from copying my bad shooting day :)
