How important is your Gear?
#1

Recently I watched the DigitalRev Series "Cheap camera Challenge" where is given a cheap camera and a challenge to a professional photographer.

One of my favorites photographers, Chase Jarvis, completly rocked!
For me is more evident than ever that Gear doesn't make the photographer.
Do you have any great photos taken with any cheap cameras?

The artistic and emotional qualities of a good photograph are dependent not only on the ability, skills, and experience of the photographer, but also on opportunity, timing, and luck. However, even if all of those were available in equal measure, then the result from using better gear would be a better photograph, and not necessarily only because it would be technically superior. I would guess that is one reason why professional photographers always take their high quality gear to use on professional assignments, not cheap compact cameras.

Cheers.
