Some people believe that an expensive camera will help to take better photographs. Is that right?
Here’s a test to find out. Look at the three photos below. They were taken with three very different cameras … a very basic (and old) ‘point and shoot’ … a middle-of-the-range digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera … and a hugely expensive, top-notch professional camera.
Can you tell which camera took which photograph?
Those three photographs – of the little wine-producing village of Fechy, in Switzerland – were taken from exactly the same spot, at exactly the same time, with three different cameras, each one mounted on a tripod. The three cameras I used were …
|… a 3 megapixel Pentax Optio point-and-shoot …|
|… a middle-of-the-range 6 megapixel DSLR, my Nikon D70s …|
|… and my 12 megapixel, built-like-a-brick, Nikon D3.|
But the photos are not shown in that order.
