But in order to do so, the photog needs to have access to the gear, right? Some work for agencies and have a gear poll from which to use. Others need to buy the gear to use in their studio, in the field, etc. In the end, the gear needs to exist and to be made.

now you get it. You need the gear to be part of the club, But don’t expect that having the gear will make you stand out from the club.

This isn’t an argument about having the right gear, or not, it’s about that gear providing you with a usp which enables your business to outcompete others.

Of course. But again, to enable the business to outcompete, it requires the right gear to start with. If my competitor is using a 50 MP camera and making more business than me due to that, should I not buy a 50 MP camera?

errr... yeah.

You cant build a business on having a particular bit of gear, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need the right gear.

Of course, what am saying all along? The right gear today for many applications is 50 MP+ cameras, like it or not.

name a field in photography that the customer requires 150mb images.

When I was doing corporate work, my photographer had a client who painted fine art oil for vintners in California. The client wanted copy art for offset reproductions of his work and required the highest resolution possible. So my friend used a 4x5 scan back that produced 150Mb files. I'm not sure how that equates to the 100Mp Fuji today, but there you go - 150Mp images.

What it means is your business must be based on your art.

I can make wonderful art with my 24 MP camera, but if the customer requires 50 MP files, tough luck.

how is meeting your customers basic needs going to differentiate your offer from others?? In fact, it’s gonna be exactly the same as your competitors, unless you have another usp.

but by all means, go out and buy all the gear, then bang up your website with that listed, and see how many customers you get.

If I could make great art with 24 MP cameras, or 16 MP cameras, I will make great art with 50 MP cameras.

no ones stopping you.

1. What if my client needs are 61 MP res files? I will need to buy the camera, case closed.

2. You need to be part before being able to stand up or out.

3. I wrote 50 MP+, not 150 MP. In any case, I am sure that Fuji, Hasselblad, and Phase 1 are all wrong, making all those high res MF cameras...
