No, as no photographer ever took a picture without a camera, it's a camera first.

Sure they have, I've done it! In the darkroom you place objects right onto the print and expose the paper to light. It's called a photogram, I did my first one when I was 11:...

Of course, one could say the tarnish on a silverware is a kind of photogram and also can make a case that a painting is a direct deposition of color pigments.

On one hand, the modern marvel that is a camera can take a photo almost by itself but if a photographer did not take a photo, what would be the point? If everyone was blind, would it matter who or what took a photo?

But a photographer is a photographer because he/she carries camera; other than that he/she may just be an accountant.

Now, if the question is who is a better photographer, the one who carries FF or the one who carries FZ1000? This would be like asking who is a better shot, one who carries AK-47 or Saturday night special?
