1) It does not matter who you are or who you think you are, you are not even a fraction as capable as the camera you already hold in your hand..
Thanks for the wisdom, but frankly that's a bit harsh don't you think? No need to talk down to people. I think most of us are trying to be better photographers. Maybe not all of us...
I'm very happy with my new 6D; I have not one complaint with it. It has, I think about 3500 shutter actuations in the last 5 weeks, since I bought it (most of these were done in "one shot" mode). And I'm not exactly a person who is easy to please, or has not written critically of cameras, lenses, photographs, or photographers for that matter.
It might be the strongest link in my photo arsenal. I might be the weakest, but without me, it just sits there.Btw, does anyone have an opinion on the ridiculous apple tv ad campaign, where they state emphatically "more pictures are shot every day with an iPhone, than with any other camera"...?
Talk about a claim that is difficult to back up...especially since it can't possibly be true.
For example, there are far more smartphones from other makers in the world, than there are iPhones...Apple has what, 12% worldwide market share? It's something like that...probably less.
And...the last time I saw a press conference, every photo journalist in the room is holding down 10 or 12 fps bursts for 30 minutes at a time...I much prefer the sound of those shutters to the sound of the idiotic liar at the mic! How many photo journalists are there, and how many thousand pictures do they take a day?
