    Once the pretend-photographer virtual-life role-playing trolls realize that
    it's not the camera that makes the award-winning photo, but the
    photographer, whatever will they do to get attention for themselves?

    'Tis a newsgroup disaster of catastrophic proportions. Their eventual
    education and advancement in intellect (is that even possible?) will surely
    bring this newsgroup to a standstill.

    Truly indeed.

    I should be careful of what I wish for. If it weren't for having to
    continuously correct the pretend-photographer trolls there'd be no reason
    to even type for this newsgroup.

    What was the reason you types this for again??

    Like the sound of your our ramblings I guess.

    LOL, sad.

    Generally true, but that _doesn't_ mean that equipment, or technical
    quality, is irrelevant. There are many facets that go into making a
    great photograph, and while composition, subject, etc are very
    important, in many cases, technical quality is _also_ one of those
    facets. It isn't _sufficient_ for great photography, but neither is it
    irrelevant to it.

    It's like a great chef. He can probably make something decent out of
    sub-standard ingredients in a poorly equipped kitchen, but it won't be
    his best work. To do his best work he needs the proper tools and
    ingredients.

  5. Well stated; perhaps the best ever. Now I wish this would put an end to
    the ridiculous assertions every few months, but I doubt it.

    The flaw in that argument is that a master-chef can produce a master-chef's
    meal on a heated rock any time he wants to, and s/he knows it. Your problem
    is that you don't know this. Such are the minds of a relentless
    snapshooters. There's no getting them beyond this level of inadequacy.

    Me too. A master chef that's in charge of a hotel or restaurant is very
    dependent on equipment to turn out meals for hundreds or thousands of
    patrons a day. Knowing which equipment to buy and how to use it is an
    integral part of the job. The wrong equipment can cause the restaurant
    to fail or can even cause patrons to become ill.

    There are so many relevant analogies where equipment is a key factor in
    the difference between success or failure it's hard to know where to
    begin. Photography is no different. The best equipment won't teach
    composition skills, and the worst equipment won't let those skills be
    maximized.

  8. Probably. Still the question remains: why would you want to if you have
    a choice?

    Using good tools (not necessarily the absolut top of the line most
    expensive) makes _ANY_ task easier, more enjoyable, and because of that
    the result probably better than using inferiour, bottom-of-line
    crutches.
    And this applies to cooking, photography, gardening, carpentry, driving,
    or any task I can possibly think of.

    LOL, yeah and plenty of TV shows that prove that doctors can cure
    incurable diseases.

    "TV shows that prove..." That's a classic.
