People certainly have a right spend large sums of money on equipment and use it however they want. But I find it inappropriate for people with little understanding of the creative aspects of photography to buy expensive, top flight equipment. Some people buy gear and just keep testing it, without taking any real photos. What's the point? Just collecting high-tech toys? One needn't be a "great artist" to start learning about the principles of composition, and what makes a good photograph.

IMO people should "earn" the quality of equipment they use by putting in the time and effort needed to achieve some level of skill and understanding.

That's a pretty envious statement to make, about people having to ''earn'' the quality of their equipment.

So what if they have a fancy camera and take crap pictures. Hopefully these twits will sell their gear later on and we will be about to bag a bargain.

And if only the 'superior' photographers ever purchased this equipment the volumes manufactured would then be considerably less and very few would be able to afford it in any case. The 'twits' actually do us all a favour.

Good point!

The prices would still be outrageously stupid as the manufacturers tap into whatever is deemed exotic and price their products accordingly.  Its the twits that keep the prices high. If whoever could not sell their products at exaggerated prices then the prices would have to fall to make 'camera ''A'' a viable item. So long as twits with fat wallets and limited IQ keep buying, the prices will always be massaged to reflect their ''must have'' status.
