Absolutely, the camera only reproduces what you see with your eyes or what you envisage in your head!

well as inspiring as that article was i believe it is not entirly true

a photo is a single frame that has been captured by a photographer through a camera

so photography is the process in which a photographer captures a single image through a camera.

therefore withought the camera photography cannot take place...
this proves photography has SOMETHING to do with cameras.

yes i agree that having a fancy camera does not make you a better photographer...it just gives you resources to create better products.

i agree too, although i don't think they were trying to say it literally has NOTHING to do with the camera, but you definately dont need to dump countless amounts of $k's into your camera bag to produce good pictures, although it has it's perks im sure

defintly. i notice a big difference in having a slr to a point and shoot. more options leads to more creativity. more creativity leads to more options to produce better photographs. everyone loves better photographs! having nice photography equipment makes things easier and nicer, but doesn't make you a better photographer.

One thing's for sure... the manual focus on my dSLR is one feature I really really love! I didn't have that feature with my Kodak before. I always had to focus on something, lock focus and pan a little bit.

It worked sometimes, but I gave up almost all the time.

I think what it boils down to is that some people (if not most) think
that if they buy a $xxxxK camera it will make them a great photographer.
Even Better, that the camera will magically produce awesome shots,
maybe even take the pictures for them

Even the more experienced photographers often think, man if I just
had that uber lens, ooooh the shots I could take... etc etc.

I say utilize what you have. Master the basics before going to
more advanced techniques. I think shooting for almost five years
with my point and shoot 3.1 MP canon tested that theory out. Sure
I could've gotten a DSLR now, but I don't think I'm quite ready for
it yet, and the camera I got (FZ7) is more than enough for my
current needs.
