From my point of view, the kind of camera is of little importance. When we look over the important photography of past years, few photographers had anything like the quality of camera's we have today. So we get caught up in the question if I just had this or that equipment I could make better pictures. Much like the piano student saying if this keyboard only had 122 keys I could create beautiful music. The first semester at ID we were told to go out and buy a cheap plastic camera and that would be it for the term. By the end of that session everyone knew how to compose. Few people take the time to learn or deal with layout and design.
