A friend of mine is considering upgrading to a DSLR.  My opinion is that a point and shoot is just fine, especially when it makes the difference between getting the shot or not.  To illustrate my point, here are a number of my favorite photos.  All of these were shot with Casio Exilm cameras; 6 or 10 megapixels.  Not that I wouldn’t love to have a DSLR but I wouldn’t have it in my pocket when I wanted to take a picture.

At a housefire in Weathersfield, Vermont.  This photo was shot after my camera was dropped in the mud and stepped on; try that with your DSLR.  (EX-Z300, 10 MP)
