prosumer

(PROfessional conSUMER) A person who is very knowledgeable about a subject and likes to purchase high-quality equipment. For example, many digital cameras fall into the prosumer category (see viewfinder). They offer higher quality and more advanced features than the lower-end consumer variety, but still do not possess all the features of the most professional units on the market. See consumer.
