Makes for some very interesting changes, for instance. The first time I took the A350 out was to the VS2k8 launch and as I was happily snapping away at the registration line..
One of the attendants approached me and said "Sir? Are you media? There's another line you register at." Someone needs to tell her that just because someone is holding an SLR doesn't mean they're with the media!
Second interesting point was how more frequently I was snapping pics as I mentioned in a previous post, a high performance camera that allows for more picture control means that a person simply wants to snap more shots to practice in getting the best picture possible.
Another interesting example of how people react to a SLR came when I was walking around PC Fair trying out how well my bounce card works in redirecting my flash. And the obvious target are the salesgirls handing out the leaflets. Imagine my surprise as I pointed my camera at one and...
Interesting.. I didn't even say anything yet. I just pointed my cam at her and she posed for the shot. Afterwards from the forums I read that this was the standard operational procedure when you walkabout the exhibitions. Point cam at girl, smile, wait for girl to pose, snap, smile thank you.
Unfortunately I didn't get too many chances to take a lot of pics, my kit lens doesn't work too well in small enclosed places. Just means I have to wait till my close range lens gets here.
