    I will not agree with it. Please remember that camera itself is just a gadget, it is a tool that enhance your ability. If you do not possess the skill of photography as in the sense your picture fail to express their message or the composition is alway wrong or it can be the whole pic is distracting leaving audience to wonder what are you trying to tell us.

    A normal PNS , dslr or DSLR-like affect the photographer to certain extend. When gadget fall into good hand, the outcome will be good. Yet if it fall into a wrong hand, you will understand the consequence yourself.

    So if u are equipped with DSLR like nikon D300 with 18-200mm lens but the angle of shooting, the shutter speed, the aperture, the ISO , the white balance and EV no all screw up. What the point?

    You get under exposure or over exposure shot. That alone is enough to make one frown instantly. So what make you think a DSLR made a better photographer when now pple use PNS and edit in photoshop? Just abit of information, I use dslr-like* Kodak P880 which is hard to use and not as good as current PNS in food shot for catering service. The quality match the standard in food magazine.

    It is the knowledge and practice that make one a better photographer!!! OK!!! =)

    Yes I also find it interesting, but it can also be in kopitam. I would have left it in newbie section if the topic is eg Does a DSLR takes better picture, or In what way is a PNS worst off than a DSLR etc, rather than the above title which somehow is aiming at photographers (with DSLR) and is closer to coffeeshop talk.

    Anyway, being here would have more participations too.

    Does having a Rolex make you better at telling the time?

This is a simple logical fallacy that is taught in any reading comprehension course, yet which some seem to have assumed to be the case.

    I believe the title refers to "photographer" as the same person... not 2 individuals with differing skills.

    quoting from the writing ..

    ''And, herein lies the crux of the matter. We all have different needs. A photographer walking the streets of an urban environment doing street shooting has very different needs than someone on the Serrengetti photographing wildlife. A photographer looking to create large prints of extremely high quality landscape work will of necessity need a different set of tools than a teenager wanting to record her sweet-sixteen party.''

    indeed, that article doesn't talk about 2 photographers. it talks about many types of photographers and many different needs. whether a DSLR can help a person take a better photograph is an absolutely subjective issue decided only by the person in question. first, that person needs to know what he/she needs in order to achieve what he/she wants.

    anyway.......

    camera is just a tool,
    nothing but just only a tool,
    just get the right tool to do the job right.

    does you ever see a very skillful craftsman boast around what the most expensive tools or sharpest knife he has?
    or any artist boast around his has a fine collection of sable paint bushes plus wide range oil colors?

    if you are a professionals, do you like to list all your tools you has in your namecard?

    so does a DSLR made you a better photographer.....................?
    only you have the right answer.

    Yes They all do. Good stuff commands good and $$ prices. Not necessary in namecards, but mostly photographers list out their equipment where they get pics published in mag etc. Grey Gorman did said he loves a 1Ds and 70-200 IS.



    Face it. In business, ALL clients will look at you differently if they know that you have the top tools in hands. Be it whether or not they are paying peanuts.

    Well of course you must show decent portfoilo too. Good or artistic is another question.

    well i never read it in detail

    but i remember it was in response to ken rockwall's article that the camera doesn't matter, and the photographer does.

    in fact, at the end i do recall that there was mention of a good photographer being able to produce good shots with any camera in the world.. being bullshit. which is of course, true. you give him a d3 without battery also cannot produce any shots.

    One of the hoariest of the hoary cliches is that a good photographer can take a good photograph with just about any camera. Horseshit.
    so while the bulk of the article is perhaps addressing a separate point, there is still issues of photographer skill being brought into the picture leh. maybe i misunderstood the purpose of your link to site. anyways, my remark was just a top of the head one.. cos i start a thread about this before

    True true. Mabbe I'm assuming too much but so far I felt that this thread was in the context of P&S vs DSLR.

    While both have their respective advantages (being discussed in another thread)... one can't deny that DSLRs are by far the format that covers the broadest range and/or is the most popular systems. So I'm assuming that an average Joe on the street would benefit from using a DSLR as opposed to a P&S.... they to get to capture more of what they like and want. That in my definition makes them a better photographer... but can their pics compare to those like yours...then nope.

    Better is relative

    Pretty obvious when DLSRs users flourish here in the last few years.
