    I love iPhone camera for the fun apps and auto-focus close-ups it gives. But I will never look to replace my 500D with it. So, no to wedding pics taken by iPhone only even if they have all the most professional lighting in the world.

    Finding the Right Tool to Tell a War Story
    By JAMES ESTRIN

    Does it really matter what camera Damon Winter used to make these beautifully composed images? I don’t think so. It’s the images that are important.

    Whenever possible, I avoid writing about camera gear. The photographer takes the picture, not the equipment. Few people care what kind of typewriter Hemingway used.

    But it happens that Mr. Winter quickly realized — after trying a few shots — that his iPhone would be an effective way to capture the day-to-day trials of the First Battalion, 87th Infantry of the 10th Mountain Division in northern Afghanistan.

    “Composing with the iPhone is more casual and less deliberate,” Mr. Winter said. “And the soldiers often take photos of each other with their phones, so they were more comfortable than if I had my regular camera.”

    Mr. Winter even found himself taking a few iPhone pictures during firefights while he was shooting video with his single-lens reflex (a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, as long as we’re on the subject). The Hipstamatic app forced him to wait about 10 seconds between photos, so each one had to count.

    Of course, Mr. Winter’s focus was not on equipment. It was on the tedium faced by the battalion’s men and women, occasionally punctuated by intense fighting. He said, “These are long grueling days that are not pretty, not sexy, that the soldiers get through as best as they can.”

    For my wife's brother's wedding shots last year, the guy had a D70 with a 18-55mm kit lens. When I made noise on CS, many immediately scolded me with the "it's the skill not the equipment" thingy.

    I remember you commented the package they took is very cheap right?

    and I think your memory is failing, you said is D80, how come now downgrade to D70?

    anyway, you kena whack in the thread, is because you look down at the photographer because of what equipment he use on that day, more than his working attitude.


    FYI, when I shoot weddings on film, I bring two bodies, 30 rolls of film, but most of the time only used up 10-12 rolls,

    when I shoot with D70, I also bring two bodies.

    My point is, whatever you use, you need to know your gears well, and well prepare.

    D80 was my initial guess. Recently, he asked me to upload the photos to his new iPad and for the first time I saw the EXIF. (Or D60 - whatever, can't remember, pre-D90 for sure.)

    Let's just say his attitude pissed everyone in the family off - photographer or not.

    You can have a pre-discussion with the prospective pro before agreeing to accept their services.
    If brand and model of equipment is important to you, then you can specify beforehand.
    If the pro agrees to the specifications and terms of agreement, then he will use equipment not less than what both of you had agreed.

    You of course have to agree to pay more, if you specified a very high end brand camera model and lens.

    Whether the pro can actually take better photos with the very high end brand camera model or whether he could take equally good photos with a very low end digislr and cheap lens; is not the point here.

    There is nothing wrong with specifying high end equipment. It is just a contract that two parties agreed to, beforehand.

    Sure. But as I said in my original posting, the whole package was confirmed by my brother-in-law. I said nothing - even till this day. Whatever noise I made about this guy, strictly on CS

    And yes, I saw his output. And no, I do not consider it anything "pro".

    The main thing is that most people don't really get to pick a wedding photographer. Like my brother-in-law, they just signed on a package that included x growns, y suites, and z indoor and outdoor shots.

    And the point I was trying to make in my original post was that: we all know, one cent money, one level of quality. That's fine but that doesn't mean that the "pro" can do shoddy work and have that "hey, you paying cheap, I doing you a favour, ok?" attitude, right?

    Make noise here is even more despicable than making noise to the photographer directly. Why? Because if you feel strongly about the quality or lack of, why didn't you stand up for your brother-in-law? Oh wait, it's actually easier to make noise online where you can hope to remain anonymous.

    And mess up his wedding? Nah...

    And like others say, haven't seen the output (at that point), justifiable to make noise? In fact, after the photos were delivered, the couple themselves made noise about the output.

    The iPad will take over DSLR not iPhone

    In fact, those guests at weddings already blocking the view of pro-photographer with iPad

    The only pictures that DSLR will get at wedding are hundreds of iPad up in the air
    I eats, shoots & leaves
