OBTW - the two pros in black suits and white shirts clicked thrice per graduate, used wireless triggers to flash stands 1700 times 3x and stood on a spot for 162 minutes. Their lenses were black.
In that case, I can never be a pro. I can not keep standing on a single spot for 162 minutes

People like to think that they will be rock-star photographers shooting playboy centerfolds and end-zone touchdowns for SI with occasional safari to Africa for Nat Geo in the mix. But the reality is that if you can't stand in a single spot for 162 minutes snapping 1600 frames of graduates... then it is true that you will probably never be a professional photographer.

How about an M9 to chase kids around with? I'm not positive.. maybe one of you all can identify it, its definitely a Digital Leica product. He drove out of the parking lot in a Range Rove... I think that is the demographic you're speaking of.

I love all this speculation, its better than cable

D-Lux of some sort?

One of my photo-class teachers says the 'pro' photogs are the ones who get paid, but that does not mean that they are producing 'professional' grade photos.... You can still be a 'pro' if you get a small gig and get paid for what you do, no matter how little.

I wonder whether on the Olympus E-series forums there's a bloke calling himself 25.1X16.7NOW who demands that Olympus make an APS-C DSLR.
Heh doubtful, since Olympus abandoned their legacy mount when they put all their chips on Four Thirds.

It's crushing all my hope. This makes me feel like I have to become a human photobooth shooting from one angle the entire time with the same setting to become a "professional" *languishes in agony*

So far I'm happy with the small paid gigs I get invited to occasionally... I don't dream of becoming a celebrity photographer anyway. Not a true pro, but hoping the pay increases =))

As for the FF to be released at Photokina? Bring it on!! I'll look at it.. then get the APS-C K-5 successor instead

big dSLRs levering white zooms sporting 77mm filter rings that mounted those three steps, one after another, in alphabetical order, popping their on-board flashes
*facepalm*

I think it's so great that Pentax built in flashes don't pop up automatically (or did I miss something - it doesn't do that even in scene modes on the beginners models, does it?).

flash does pop up automatically, in auto mode, and when flash is set to auto. (atleast on my K-x it does)

Then might abandon Four Thirds for Micro Four Thirds. With Olympus's history one can not really trust them when it comes to camera mounts.

Will they call it Two Thirds format instead?

If that's all there is to being a professional, then I could easily be one!!! Seriously, 162 minutes is not that bad.

Wow, my horizons have just expanded!!! Can I now tell people that I'm professional?? just kidding...

Sometimes after running around crouching, reaching, standing on toes, jumping etc I would kill for standing still in 162min.

We all know this is a bunch of bull.. they would never use a inferior sensor like the sony 24 over the new 16.
And if the do use it on the new camera release I'll get another K-5 instead of the K-3 or whatever.

This is the D3200 sensor? Perhaps there's more than one sensor?
