    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.
    Why suddenly talk about me ... I only know how to operate 10D, 1D MKII only tho', not more.

    Equipment is a booster for clients, just like RAM, CPU speed, HDD space... hee.

    I did take wedding pics with s50 and D70 b4. Wouldnt say they are the best. But I'm still a newbie. Know your equipment, that is more important.

    Anyway, +1 b4 lock ...

    Agreed. The equipment is only a medium thru which photographers use to record what they see thru their view finder. With a better camera body and lens, of course the image will look better (assuming that all things are equal). But ultimately the primary deciding factor is still the 'human sensor' -- the creative part of the brain that enables the photographer to really know how to 'see' the images before recording it.

    Photography is an art, comprising of many different forms. It is an acquired skill. I suppose that to truly advance in this art, ones has to 'look beyond the equipment', to transcend one's thoughts to an artistic (yet subjective) plain, where such heightened abilities can come into full play.

    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..
    really? then, u might be those who falls for mkting hype. if the equipment used is ur source of comfort and guage of the competency of the photographer, then u might be in for some nasty surprises, like my sis.

    having a good/excellent cam might ensure great pics. the caveat is if used properly. having a good/excellent cam will also ensure u have BAD pics, esp since the cam is excellent in showing up every single flaw of the photog.

Anyway, I work xtra hard that day.

    when you see those equipment in the cabinet, it's time to check if you're underpaid (just kidding lah ... so you got paid peanuts?)

    I've noticed that bridal shop roadshows (of which photographers work with I suppose) feature portfolios of previous weddings, not a display of camera gear that photographers use.

    espn: You can shoot my wedding but only if you use a 300/350D. Nikons simply don't cut it.

    Bring both the pro body along with the D70 to the wedding, but shoot with D70.
    That should solve the "see you no up" syndrome.

    Great idea!

    Once I was shooting in an evening gala event, and one of the ladies seeing me taking out a 512 MB CF card, appoached me and said: "Huh? Everyone nowadays using 1 GB card and you are still using a 512, ah?"

    So I paused for a second, and slowly reached for my 2 GB CF card in my casing and showed it to her with my response:"Why would I need a 1GB card...when I have a 2GB one??" (gave her a blank look at the same time)

    Feeling a bit taken aback, she said:"...like that enough meh?"
    I replied: "More than enough for this type of event"
