Re: The role of ISO

Okay, sorry about the misunderstanding, but perhaps you can see why I might have read it another way?

I think you can take photographs with the majority of decent or semi-decent cameras that you can shove up on a wall at a pretty fair size and they will look great. My sister has one of the Panasonic TZ models (it was the top one a generation ago) and has a 30" wide pic (maybe 12" high) she took up on her wall that look stunning and most people assume it's a professional print she bought. It's the composition in a large part, but actually it's also sharp and low noise (gotta love a bright sunny day). Where the better kit helps is as the conditions become trickier.

Oh, and when deciding which camera to take weight and lens availability (I have some very nice Canon glass) is probably more of an effect than equivalence. So is noise for low-light work, but let's leave that discussion for another day...
