I am wondering, of the people who buy a DSLR for the first time, about what percent do you think apply themselves to learning and growing as a photographer and about how many keep it on auto until it ends up collecting dust somewhere? I ask because I took the kids to the zoo yesterday. It was a beautiful day but not many people were there. However I saw about 10 moms with dslrs. I don't bring mine to the zoo. Been there, done that. But it made me think "wow! they are going to put the portrait business OUT of business" until I realized everyone I know with a dsrl (which is quite a few people now), with the exception of one, hardly touch it. So what do you think? 90%? More? Less? And why?
