Learned this from my Mom. She worked as a newspaper journalist at a small rural paper and often photographed whatever (usually whoever) she was writing about. Toward the end of her career, she used a Pentax MG and a Canon sure shot....neither of which anybody would consider a "professional camera". She carried one or both of these with her virtually at all times and used them daily for years. I have both of them today. The canon is broken but, remarkably, the Pentax MG still works pretty well.
