We encounter many photographers new to the craft on our workshops. Many of these new clients that are caught up in the technology. With so many options to capture a picture these days, it’s a wonder anyone can choose the road that’s good for them. It’s so important for newcomers to focus on their photography, and not the brand of camera they’re using.
There are some other factors to keep in mind as well, like lens selection.
I often mention when I’m instructing that digital cameras have reached a point that most all moderately priced cameras have the capability to capture clean sharp images. The playing field has been leveled for all to enjoy.
I’ve been in this business before digital photography slowly came to life in the 1990s. I’ve tested many 5 megapixel early models in the back-country (photo below) and have seen improvements in equipment first hand. Now, I’ve come to the conclusion that almost all digital cameras within the last 10 years are all capable of resolving great images.
I’m referring to equipment beyond kit lens units that many get started with and eventually graduate to more purposeful camera bodies and lenses.
