There is no such thing as a pro camera
Sep 25, 2012

Every time a new high-end DX or FX body comes out there are folks wondering if it's a pro camera!

Is it pro?
Why isn't it pro?
Can I be seen with it and say I'm a pro?

A professional photographer is usually an accomplished and experienced shooter who uses their cameras to make money. But some pro's don't. Some make no money and create free art. And some document events for their own reasons.

Some need little more than a weathered D300 or a pair of D50's and others might want the extreme resolution of a D800. Others might choose a more rugged D3 or D4 and others may stick with the small beautiful files from a D2Hs.

Cameras are tools, just like paint brushes. Buying an expensive brush doesn't make you Picaso. It doesn't even make you a house painter. When it comes to shooting that makes you money or simply makes you happy, don't waste time on trying to classify the gear you're using.
