Full Frame Offensive
5 months ago

Just wanted to get some of my fellow Olympians opinions on a subject that bothers me. I do a lot of freelance work (writing/music/photos) and spend time scanning Craigslist "creative" ads for quick, local gigs.

Inevitably, a TON of the photography ads will say things such as:

"Looking for second shooter for wedding. Must use at least a Canon 5D"

or "photographer needed to shoot X,Y, and Z.. must have a full-frame DSLR, such as the Nikon D800.."

This just bugs the sh*t out of me. You can't explain to these people that the camera does not make the photographer. This seems to apply only to photography. No one says, "looking for guitarist for small wedding ceremony... MUST use at least a Martin or Taylor acoustic.."

So many people have been duped by the "Full-Frame Machine," including photographers.

Any thoughts??
