I'm an amateur photographer and I bought my first dslr. I'm trying to learn the nuances of photography but I often find myself to be too afraid to take out my more expensive dslr when I go out because I'm mostly afraid I'll get it stolen. I live close to a city and love it there, so I see so many photo opportunities for the capturing, but there is also opportunity for my camera to get jacked and/or me to get held up.
How do you know when to bring/use a point and shoot rather than a dslr?
