    Will expensive running shoes turn a couch potato into a world champion marathon runner?

    Will an expensive Rolex watch make the wearer a pro at telling the time?

    Owning expensive equipment:

    A good way to tell the owner he has no excuses for the lousy photos he takes.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    Expensive Equipment + Expensive model + Expensive exotic location = Expensive photos.

    Maybe an expensive watch runs faster than a cheap one?

    I think both equipment and person play impt role in the photo making.
    cameras are not made of tofu

    80% = No -- the person behind it is most important!!!

    20% = yes -- a good camera with better CCD tends to be more sensitive in reading details
    eg. colour, metering, etc

    the lousy chef cuts himself deeper with an expensive and sharp knife, at least with a cheap and blunt knife, the cut is less painful

    expensive equipment = good photo, ....................partially truth,

    but one thing for sure, we all will laugh even louder when we see some "suck" photos come out from expensive equipment.

    Expensive Equipment = More options to create a better photo + Skill + talent = Award Winning Photo (provided photographer submits for competition)

    Expensive Equipment = More options to create a better photo - Skill + talent = Could be good photo

    Expensive Equipment = More options to create a better photo + Skill - talent = Good Photo

    Expensive Equipment = More options to create a better photo - Skill - talent = Lousy Photo

    Expensive Equipment = More options to create a better photo - Skill - talent = Good Photo (must be lucky day)
