Oh, sure. Look...here's this great photo of the Western Greebe's courtship ritual taken with the A1400. The birds are those two tiny, dark specks there. What a great photo.
A great shot is a great shot. Weither its from an a1400 or a 1Dx. It's more convienent to get the shot with a 1Dx but If you got it with a a1400, both would be great shots. That's the principle and has nothing to do with equipment.
A great photo is a great photo. It's irrelevant what equipment was used.
Basic failure of logic. A great photo can be taken with any camera, but it does not follow that every great photo can be taken with any camera.
No one is contesting the former, the latter assumption is where you're incorrect.
But just because the great photo would be different from the a1400 than the 1Dx makes it no less great.
IE: great wide angle shot of a landscape is no less great than a tele-compressed photo landscape, which could also be just as good.
The photographer chooses the shot. For some shots, 'any camera' just won't do.
It's obvious you're practicing reductio ad absurdum - and you're doing a great job of sounding absurd in the process. Feel free to keep on baiting, I've fed you enough troll food in this thread.
More like look, a close up wide shot of the western gebes courtship and here's another of them tele compressed.
Which one is better? Neither, they're both good. That's were I disagree, one shot was easier to get and the other was extremely difficult but the end product is the same.
The end product is not
the same. Simple FACT of the matter is...you could NEVER get that close to a courting Grebe couple in the first place! You would scare them off LONG before you ever got close enough to photograph them as more than two black and white specks with the A1400. That all assumes you aren't arrested first for encroaching upon the habitat of a protected bird.
Your hypothesis only works in a dream world where there are no environmental and wildlife protection laws, and in which birds are completely unafraid of idiotic human activity. You CAN NOT get that close to a Grebe, especially a courting couple. There are matters of respect that must be addressed. If I saw a photographer like you out in the wild at some protected migrating bird stopover, sloshing through the water so get a snapshot of a couple grebes, I'd happily nark on him and get his ass arrested for being a disrespectful jackass.
You can wish and hope all you want, but it's still absurd to think you can literally "get the shot", hell "get any shot" with a $100 P&S wide angle camera, in any situation. You can't.
At this point, it's obvious your just trolling. Your making absurd arguments just for the sake of making absurd arguments. That's fine...it only really hurts you. I think it's clear no one here believes a word you are spouting anymore, so I'm quite happily done with the conversation.
