Sometimes it's Just Really Sad to Watch People with P&S Cameras

    Tonight I was at an orchestra performance at my daughter's high school.
    I took a bunch of photographs of the orchestra, including some close ups
    of my daughter with the 300mm telephoto. Sitting in front of me was a
    man with a small Canon P&S camera. He was zooming in as close as he
    could holding the camera far out in front of him because it had no
    viewfinder. I could see every photo he took on the LCD, and it was just
    a bunch of dark, with the faces unrecognizable. We were far too far back
    for his tiny flash to have any effect at all, but the stage was well lit.

    I found that I got better results using manual focus, something that's
    rarely necessary. I also found another good feature of the SLR, it makes
    a very good monocular!

    I'm guessing this might be a good thread to mark as ignored.
