I have started a set of new pages on the PhotoActive website with my recommendations for camera kit within certain set price limits.
The pages will be extended to cover my recommendations for £1000 – and upwards. Each time I will give my personal recommendation for photographers looking to buy. I daresay there will be lots of photographers who may disagree with my recommendations – particularly some Canon DSLR users – but I can only speak from my own personal experience.
While it is important for any photographer to buy the best camera equipment he or she can afford, it is vital to understand that it’s not how much money you spend on kit that will help you produce great photographs.
It is the way you use that camera that really matters.
I have been teaching photographers this for 10 years now. If you have loads of dosh, fine, spent it on camera gear – but it will NOT make you into a photographer until you learn how to use it properly.
