I know you are one of the "players" around here but that is a spectacularly uncalled for rude remark. You might at least take a second or two off from being superior to explain your reasoning. I can get all of that kind of stuff from DPR...
And if you think I'm irritated by your post, you're damn right!
Why do I think your remark is crazy?
Simply because most of the top quality professional work that is done with a single lens reflex is indeed done on a tripod. Do you imagine that photographers run around using long lenses shooting fashion, landscape, industrial, sport etc. etc. etc. without the use, at the very least, of a monopod? Do you imagine that photographers shooting architectural work don't usually have their cameras firmly attached to the strongest, most rigid tripod they can buy? Does a studio photographer shooting tethered, building up a composition and lighting arrangement, making minute adjustments for his AD or client, attempt to achieve all of that by hand-holding and thus negating the very repeatability of the process he is attempting to bring to its peak?
And if all these attributes are not of the single lens reflex camera, then of what?
That is why, and I repeat, your remark was so flawed. There is nothing whatsover 'superior' about my stance, just that I apparently know something of which you would appear to have no understanding. If that, in your mind, makes me seem 'superior' than so be it - it isn't a stance it is a relative measure in your own mind.
I never indulge in rudeness for the simple reason that I dislike it in anyone. If fact and logic fails in an argument, then I simply walk away from it. As for being a 'player' here, so is anyone else who posts. I have special dispensation from neither on high nor below; if my conduct has really displeased you then you can always refer to the folks in charge.
