For me, using a DSLR is far more challenging than a digital compact.
Nevertheless I persist, because of the more immersive experience, more control over the final image, and the ability to use different lenses.
Sometimes though I do wonder why it’s so fiddly to get a decent exposure (especially with my Pentax K-30), why I’m squinting to focus a slow 50 or 60 year old manual lens through the viewfinder of a modern(ish) DSLR only ever intended for fast modern AutoFocus lenses, and why I’m holding a chunky camera four or five times the weight of size of something like the cracking little Lumix XS1, that disappears in the palm of my hand.
How about you? Where does that balance between ease of use and rewarding experience lie?
How much do you feel your photography should be challenging, to keep it interesting?
Or do you just want it to be as easy as possible?
