Re: Pros don't use amateur gear?

So my take away from this whole misguided thread is that if you are a pro and you are not shooting with a medium format 80 megapixel system you are just fooling yourself about being a professional? Right? All lesser cameras are for amateurs? Got it. I think I'll blog about that to warn wannabes, right?

What about lights? Can I be a pro without buying Broncolor lights? If I have Profoto lights does that make me a poseur? If I have Einsteins I can presume I'm in high wimp territory, right?
