    I think having a portfolio is more impt if you wanna assure the client that his money is worth it. For those seeking a cheap deal and want good portfolio also, well.. mostly happens to friends only.

    I would be looking at his portfolio and not the camera gear he is using.

    You are looking in the wrong direction.

    would u engage a wedding photographer who uses a Nikon S1? ixus 700 maybe?

    I would think from a photographer's point of view : you can say ...its the man behind the camera...

    however, from a customer's point of view, cameras used might be a concern..
    but of cos, results will be the main concern though...and that will be shown after everything....basically, the camera u used during the event, does gives some confidence to the customers...

    actual scenario i encountered:
    a friend of mine uses a 1Dmk2 as he was asked to take for his cousin...while the main photographer was using a 300D...

    it was quite embarrasing as u can feel that the main AD photographer feels abit tensed and you should see the wondering eyes of the relatives/friends : u should know what i meant..

    hmmmm...... I wonder how many wedding couples know the diff between a D2 and a D70... I have heard countless times pple saying "D70 better than D2 series cos D70 got flash..." At my wedding, my photographer uses D2h... i heard someone asking him why not buy a pro camera with flash..... anyways, enough said.... not many pple know the product line of Nikon or Canon. More usual questions are like... "You got give CD?" "How many prints will I have" "got free album?" got free this got free that....

    If the AD feels that way... then he's probably NOT confident... big mistake. Even if ADP is using D70, a few D2X guest comes along... so be it. The job needs to get done, NOT equipment wanking at that point of time. I think the ADP is too concerned with equipment then.

    nah. as espn said, he needs a life (and mebbe spend less time in GL - see http://forum.clubsnap.org/showpost.p...&postcount=18). perhaps then he can start on his journey to learn to be a cameraman.

    since when is using a D70 for weddings a 'bad thing'? my wedding photographer did. and he's booked at least a yr in advance (thru word of mouth only, mind u). on the other hand, if using a pro-camera body equates to great wedding pics, perhaps my sister won't be complaining so much after her wedding this yr.

    It's not whether the equipment is good enough or not, it's whether YOU are good enough for the equipment.

    If the photographer is a newbie, there's 1 way to get the job, do it FOC, promise a lot of stuff and empty his pockets to get his 'portfolio'.

    If wedding photographer no portfolio, confirm newbie liao

    oh? perhaps u oughta talk to my cousin. she used a canon s50 as a 'happy-snapper' in her fren's wedding. turns out she took better pics than the pro who was hired. her fren loved her pics.

    go figure.

    why is it always the equipment?
    like asking "pls specify what cam & flash u use, must be at least 6MP cam, etc etc...."
    it is the skills that matter most. eye for details, knowledge of post processing and many more than what u can imagine.
    throw a canon system to espn and i'm sure he can do a good job as well.

    as u said.."happy snapper"...no stress..can take better u know..hahahah..

    anyway, its up to individual lah...i would say that the equipments give assurance and some confidence to the customers...if u do agree with me..
