These days, cameras seem to be getting smaller and lighter. The body of the Canon EOS 300D for example, is made up of a lot of plastic. Some still prefer cameras to be chunky and heavy - be it for more stability or a more "quality" feel. What's your preference?
Hard and chunky = pro, I am wannabe pro =P, you can guess my poll answer, since there is only one been voted in any way =P
yes Chunky Rules ...
but yeah ..its useful to have that one u can slide up ur sleave in times of infiltration ( or mabye not~_~)
but yeah ..when shooting pro .. need something more stable .. and robust ..
generally i find that i can hold it more stable if there is a lil weight to it ...
Yes .. .especially the New cybershot u .. water proof and just the right shape to have hidden up my sleve .. for those unsuspecting victims of photography ^^
yeah ... 270 dollar battery grip ..
or a couple of third part batteries ... ? .. the choice is clear .. unless ur a compulsive verticle shooter. ..
