Buying a Gibson Les Paul Custom isn't going to make you a great guitarist right away, however, it's going to help you get there a lot quicker. That's been my experience in every hobby I've ever had.

Mountain biking, photography, guitars, BMX, hillwalking, running. Buy the best you can afford and it'll make it a lot more enjoyable, and you'll likely progress quicker.

Coupled with a desire to learn very fast from your mistakes and there's no stopping you.

IMHO, not at all. Higher price typically means it's easier to get a better quality photo, by putting more controls at your fingertips. Until you know how to use those controls, your photos will improve very little from buying a top of the line camera.

In the simplest terms, about the only thing money straight-up buys you is better low light capability and higher shooting rate (FPS). For all practical purposes, everything else depends on the photographer.

I came from the old film canon cameras to the digital world
and I started with FF and expensive lenses and failed at the end
now I'm returning back to the cheapest cameras and cheapest lenses
my photos good with the easy bodies

I wish my camera was my limitation of making good photographs... That would be solvable overnight.. But as a matter of fact the limitation is me.. Not solvable overnight..

A photographer (Constant) shooting image with same settings on a tripod with a T3i kit lens and then with a 5D Mark III with a 24-70 f/2.8 L (Variable) will definitely see the difference.
However there is nothing better in photography, sports or music in learning the basic foundation.

Well said Paul.
I always sound better behind a kit with high end drums and cymbals. Playing a junker does not inspire me in the long run.

Heya,

Gear helps get a shot. But it doesn't make a better photograph.

The simple answer to your question is: probably yes. But the level of significance is what you should really be asking about. As in, how much better.

And we have a few fun threads that show people's efforts with differing cameras.

Compare for yourself and see what you think:

1DX - $6.5k
6D - $1.5k
70D - $1k
60D - $450
650D - $400

Very best,


Interesting!


Just a beginner learning the ways of model photography.

Not necessarily. If you compare Canon products maybe but a lot depends on how you view the photos. Look at the various camera threads and you will find some excellent shots on the EOS-M thread and many people would not be able to tell the difference between them and some of the best shots on the 1Dx thread. If all you are going to do is view the photos on the internet then is the 1Dx really worth $6K more than the lowly EOS-M?

If you go to the dpreview site and view their test results of various cameras they will tell you that the Nikon D810 resolved more lines per picture height than any other 35mm camera they have tested. From that test you can assume that the D810 is sharper than the 1Dx and it costs about half as much as the 1Dx. So cost does not necessarily correlate to the sharpness of the camera.

Master knowing and understanding lighting, then with higher end equipment the results will be better. End result of a photograph depends on the one holding the camera, not the camera alone.

So I ask you all giving out this great advice, you that own a camera more capable than an entry rebel...you are all masters of photography. Your work is really accomplished and can hang in the best of galleries. You are masters of the light, capable of capturing emotion in every one of your shots. You've all been published in prestigious magazines like National Geographic?

If NOT...why are you not still using an entry level rebel with kit lens?

I'm none of those things, and don't use a rebel because:
1) for long shooting, I find them too small and tedious to use
2) they don't have the AF necessary for what I shoot
3) I want my equipment to always be more capable than me, it gives me a goal to strive for
4) I am never satisfied with good enough, I always like to have bells and whistles

How are those answers? :)
