Can a Professional Photographer spot the difference? $400 Camera VS $4,000.00 Camera


(Upbeat music) – Hi. I’d love to try a
little experiment today. Can you still make good
content using cheap cameras? Bottom of the line, entry level DSLRs, like we’re talking $500 or less. Can you still play the game? I think we should start with a game. Super excited. I also want to have my
friend Gabriel come in here real quick, and I want
him to look at the photos and see if he can figure
out which are which, in a real time live. Well it’s not live cause we… But you get it, so let’s go. Gabriel! Okay, he’s here, he’s here. He has no idea what we’re doing in here. And Gabriel’s a professional photographer. You make money from photography? – Yes.
– That’s how you make a living? – Yeah.
– Okay, cool. I took photos with a really entry level… This thing. Just feel it. – Whoa
– Right? – That weighs less than one of my lenses. – Yeah I know. (Gabriel laughing) And I took some photos with the R. I wanna show you a series of the photos, and I want you to then tell me what you think I shot it with. Kay? So we’ll start with this photo. So examine that. – [Gabriel] I’d say the
first one was with the R, and that one was with
the lower end camera. – Oh, nails it. Okay nails it. Photo one, photo two. – [Gabriel] Hmmmm – [Peter] What was photo number two? – [Gabriel] The higher end. – [Peter] Photo number two. – [Gabriel] Photo number
one is the lower end. – [Peter] Photo number
one is the lower end. Photo number two is actually the T100. Photo number one was the R. – [Gabriel] Wow.
– Whew. Crazy right? – Wow, yeah.
– Crazy. Okay cool. Photo number one photo number two. – [Gabriel] Okay. – [Peter] Photo number one? – [Gabriel] That’s with the higher end. – This one right here?
– Yeah. – That is the lower end.
– Really? – [Peter] Yeah. – [Gabriel] Oh, oh man.
I started off so good. – You were doing so good I
was like this might not work. – Whenever I have students
and they are complaining their gear isn’t good enough for what they’re trying to shoot, I just do a quick Google search, and I pull up photographers on D-Day, storming the beach in Normandy. And I show them and I’m like
“Are these good pictures?” And I don’t tell them what it is. But I’m like “Are these good pictures?” They’re like, “Yeah. They’re
powerful. They’re moving.” I’m like, “These were
film cameras, under fire.” – That’s actually a great point. – Don’t tell me your
equipment isn’t good enough. – I love that. Okay thanks. Let’s go eat. Oh, but I got to do the rest of the video, then we’ll go eat. – Okay.
– Okay cool. That was fun; we should do more of that. I’m gonna flash some photos on
the screen here in a second. I want you to remember
the photos that you see, and as you see the photos, I
want you to think to yourself, “Is that entry level camera
or professional camera? Entry or pro, T100 or R?” And at the end I will tell you which photos were taken with what. I’m going to flash them pretty fast. Here we go. Which photos are taken with what? (thinking music) – That’s pretty crazy right? Maybe you were surprised,
maybe you weren’t. I wasn’t surprised at all. I knew I could take good photos with this, cause I’ve got a lot of experience doing exactly what you just saw, taking photos like that. And we’re gonna get into that more when we sit down and talk about this. Which, basically, sets
up the whole episode. Cheap cameras, can you
still make a living? Can you play this game with cheap gear or do you need to spend thousands? (rock music) – What’s up, everybody? Peter McKinnon here and
welcome back to another video. It is getting colder outside. That’s why your seeing
more and more hoodies, and love hoodie season,
love winter, love the snow, but today, this topic is something… I’ve been wanting to do
this for a long time. And it all stemmed from my buddy Mike, who owns a company called Hook and Stem. He was like, “Hey, go check
out my grid on Instagram.” I went and checked it out, and was like “Dude, it looks amazing. Yeah, everything’s great,
love the style, the flow.” “Cool, shot everything
with the Digital Rebel XT.” I’m like, “Wait, you
mean the XT from 2003, the 15 year old?” He’s like, “Yeah man I bought
it on Ebay for like 50 bucks, and a knock off 50 mil
lens for another 25, so less then a hundred bucks,
and this is what I got.” Here’s two images just from his account. That’s all taken with a camera that’s 15 years old,
that’s eight megapixels. “That is a prime example”, I thought to myself when I saw those photos. I was like, “Wow this
would be a great topic to discuss with you guys. That here’s a guy making a living, doing all this product photography to sell his business to people, so people buy things from his shop, and he’s using a Rebel XT to do that with a really cheap lens.” I went and grabbed the cheapest Canon DSLR I could find. This thing is like… It’s pretty much 98% plastic. The autofocus was slower than… I could order a pizza, and it would probably be delivered before this thing focused on an image. It did eventually focus, but it’s slow. The bottom of the barrel
digital DSLR that they offer. It’s the Rebel T100, although all of these cameras have like six different names for one model. But it’s 500 bucks. 500
bucks all said and done. That’s with the extra 50
mil, one point eight lens. Now we did a video on this
lens, if you haven’t seen it, here’s like two seconds of the B roll. (soft music) They redid this lens
with like a metal mount so this is a little bit better. The mission was, okay
let’s photograph something as if I was going to sell these photos to a company or… That would feel like
I working for someone. Something that I would
then sell to make money. Is this even an option? Or is it, no, you need to
spend the money on good gear. With these things in mind,
we decided to make this easy. Product photos of a
mug, a super simple mug. Actually, it’s not even a mug. It’s a Mason jar with a leather sleeve. Fun little fact, I’ll
be releasing these soon. Shameless plug, super excited. But, I mean, at the end of
the day this is just a mug. I’m on my desk, at
home, in my home office. How can we make this look good? So, if you’ve watched my
product photography video, boop, thing right up in the corner there, if you guys have seen that before you know I love textures. I love shooting on textures. So I went back down to the basement, grabbed that old box we used for that product photography video, and started to like build a little scene that I could put this mug on so that it would made it
a little more interesting. It would give it some mood, Give it some life, give it some color, so that this camera would
have its best chance at preforming the best it possibly could. This is what the scene looks like, but if you zoom right
out, we’re on my desk. So it’s nothing special. But that just goes to show you, these things are obtainable at you home. You don’t need a studio. You don’t need a fancy
office with fancy lights. Are those things going to make everything you do look better? Obviously, that’s a whole different topic. That’s not even, that’s
not the point here. It’s just that we can set up a little mock station on our desk. We’re gonna use the lowest
end camera we can find. Can we make this look good? (Rock music) Okay so now that I’ve shot
a few of these photos, I just dumped them into Lightroom. You can see right here, they look not half bad out of camera. So if I run one of my new presets on them, like moraine, that’s gonna
give it that rustic vibe, that I already know, the
vibe I’m looking for. The color that I’m going for. We just got to bring that
exposure up a little bit. Maybe mess with the tone curve here. And just tweak little things to get it so that it’s just looking right. And it’s not a whole lot of work. As you can see this has
taken me less than 60 seconds to get to a point that I’m happy with. You know, where I can export
that photo and good to go. We started off with the kit lens, which is the 18 to 55 lens. That’s what come with this
camera when you buy the kit. And we got a photo that looks like this. Not bad right? We shot it with an aperture
of about five point six so there’s a lot in focus. You don’t got a whole lot
of depth of field with that. But it still looks good. This, you could post that on Instagram if you were a business selling this mug and it would be fine. Now let’s throw the 50 mil
on and take that same photo, just change the vantage just slightly. Get a little bit lower, which is more of a
preferred angle of mine. And now let’s take a look. It looks a lot better. You got that nice, creamy,
smooth depth of field, but I did notice upon
zooming in a little bit, you got some chromatic
aberration and fringing. Now if you don’t know what that is, it’s when a lens has
difficulty to bring all of the wave lengths of color
to the same focal plain. It’s having a little trouble and that results in color fringing, which looks like this. If we zoom in you can see some
of that around the edge here. Here’s a shot of my James Coffee Co ring. I have it set up amongst other things that are the same texture,
the same color, the same style to really pull focus into the
center where that ring is. Those things just add
that nice pop on the side. If we just had that ring on its own, and we put it on a desk, and
we shot that product photo, it would probably look fine. But you add all these extra things in that share the same texture and color and it going to make that photo
more vibrant, more lively. It’s just more rich,
there’s more to look at. I shot this same image with the Canon R and a hundred mil macro lens. Lets throw that on the screen. You can see it’s just a lot cleaner. Now we’re going from like a $500 camera to like an over $3,000 set up. The glass quality of the lens
I was using is far superior from the one I’m using
with the Canon T100, but as far as passablity that
first photo is still great. I would have no problem
sending it to a client, posting it online. And I think it would do the job just fine. Let’s take a look at a couple more photos. Here we’ve got the mug sat
up with the box on it’s end. So we can see the depth inside. This wasn’t doing it for me so
I actually grabbed my Chemex and started hanging it in front of the camera lens a little bit, just to kinda give some real
time in camera light leaks. It’s being creative, it’s
using the light that you have, using these props and textures. to pull the most out of a photo. Just like with the ring,
had I just put this mug on the table and snapped a picture, people may have been like, “Meh, it’s not the best looking picture,” and they instantly go to blame the camera. It’s a garbage camera anyway. But when you take the extra time, make sure the light looks
good, you add the textures, you add the background,
you add the environment, you throw a little bit of
light leaks into the lens, you snap that same photo and
suddenly people are saying, “That’s a great image.
How did you get that. What did you take that with?” Just like my friend Mike at
the beginning of this video, people look at his photos,
I guarantee nobody thought for one second looking at
that Instagram account, everything was taken with a
15 year old digital camera. It’s just not the case when
you have a photographer that knows what they’re
doing with the equipment. So why would you want to spend
thousands more on a camera when a camera that’s 500 bucks all in, after tax for me Canadian
here, it does the job? And I think probably usability. It was quite difficult
working with this camera. I think I took eight
images, here are a few more. All of these took a good
few hours to actually shoot, because the autofocus was really slow, trying to find where the buttons were, just working with a camera
that isn’t up to date with the technology that we have now that costs thousands more, just takes more time, takes
a little more patience. Do you have that time and patience? If you do, awesome, then
maybe that works for you. But for someone that’s trying
output a lot of content fast, that’s when higher, more expensive gear would come into play. So the question that I’m asked
all the time, all the time, anybody that does tutorials on Youtube, anybody that’s a prominent photogropher, or has any kind of following
or just takes good photos, we are all asked the same question, which is what camera should
I buy, what do you recommend, and this is my budget? And it doesn’t matter if you
shoot Pentax, Fuji, Nikon, Sony, Canon, it doesn’t matter at all. Because everyone has
different uses for a camera. Some people just want
pictures of their kids, this guy wants product
photos, you want stock photos, they want video, Youtube, it all depends on what you’re into. If all your budget can afford
is something like this, but it checks the boxes
for what you’re into, then that’s the camera you should get. If it doesn’t check any of those boxes, and you want to do things beyond that, and you think you may grow out of it, that’s not the camera for you. Maybe you need to go
with a different brand or something completely different,
and that’s totally okay. But the premise of this
video was to show you that, you can take good photographs,
you can make money, you can make this into a
career, you can have a lot of fun with it, with
cameras that are cheap. It’s mostly right here and right here that’s gonna determine
how good your photos are. Yes, you need this tool, but these tools, the knowledge that you
have, the eye that you have, how creative and how cleaver
are you going to get with it. Those are the ingredients that
make a great photographer. That’s a great title, the ingrediants of a great photogropher,
should have run with that. So that’s that. Hope you
guys enjoyed this video. Hit that like button if you
liked this video and smash it if that’s something that you’re into. Pah, pah, pah, 2018 style. Subscribe if you aren’t already. And, and, I’m just going
to go through the comments and pick one of you to give this away to, because I don’t need it, so yeah. Maybe it will be you. See you guys in the next video. Peace. (soft rock music)

    Great Video!

    I just ran across this video and chuckled because I also just saw the video from the Northrups that says otherwise and Tony can spot the difference in cameras… or so he says. I believe that equipment may matter depending on what is being shot but I think most comes from the photographer as was said in this video. Technology has come a long way and I think it's up to the individual to do their research and think about what they want in a camera. For me, I think middle of the road in bodies is the way to go for most beginning/enthusiast photographers assuming the extra $200 – $400 is not going to stop them from getting the camera. Use the kit lenses until you know what you want to shoot but it may not matter if you are shooting at f8 – f11 even if you have a f1.2 lens. I think people forget that there were film cameras and people did shoot manually with manual focus lenses AND some great photos were shot on 2 MP cameras back in the day.

    Something that was said in this video about the ability of the cheap camera to not being able to focus – if if can't achieve focus- put it into manual, if you have live view, use that and magnify the image and manually focus … a mug or a ring isn't going anywhere. In this case it shouldn't have mattered. Anything in motion – a different story. Once a person gets to where they know what's limiting them then a look at the gear is in order. Want to shoot birds in flight – get a camera with great focus ability and a long lens. Doing portraits, maybe camera is OK but need a better lens. Doing macro, don't buy a 28mm lens.

    I think the truth is gear may matter … or it may not!

    The T100 got less background blur than the EOS R. If you use the same lens with f/1.8 on both you'd get an effective f/1.8 on the EOS R and f/2.88 for the T100. That's 'cause the f/stop is multiplied by the crop factor of 1.6 (Canon APS-C). Same thing goes for the focal length by the way.

    Another thing that's instantly recognisable is that the T100 pictures don't contain sharp edges in the background. Sharp edges get a bit washed out and soft. The EOS R pictures keep those sharp edges through although it's blurred.

    Side by side I guessed correctly every time, however, shown individually it gets harder. You can still do a lot with low end camera gear.

    On a personal level, and I'm not a pro photographer by any means, I liked the shots the T100 took better. Just goes to show that what makes a photo good can be very subjective.

    A camera to a photographer is like a blank canvas to a painter. It takes hard work to make a masterpiece. Photography is a journey, enjoy the ride! Yes we would all love the best of best cameras but reality means it's not always possible. My Canon 1100D will still allow me to snap some great shots, eventually I would love to upgrade to a 80D. Peter, thank you for your videos, they are very informative without belittling us newbies

    Great video, interesting perspective. Here are my thoughts. Obviously, you buy what you can afford. However, if money were not an issue, I would opt for the most expensive professional camera over a entry level camera every time. My reasoning is, if you have an entry level camera and you are taking photos that are technically lackluster or mundane, it could be the camera or it could be you. if you have a professional camera and your photos are technically unremarkable, then most likely its you, as a photographer that needs to improve.

    Also, I find that an entry level camera with a great lens is better than a professional camera with an inferior lens. Entry level cameras are pretty good in most situation where there is ample lighting.

    Nowadays it’s all about the lens. Most sensors and in camera processing is pretty good no matter the price point. It’s all about the lens. The camera has always been limited to the quality of the glass and the alignment of the lens elements. Light is collected through the lens, so naturally if the lens is subpar, so is your image. I’m a car guy as well so a good analogy for my car people: your car is only as good as the tires on it. The tires are the only thing that touch the road, so good tires always yield good results (unless your engine or chassis is broken). Same concept with a camera. A lens is the only thing that filters/funnels the light. A good lens always yields good results (unless your sensor is dirty or processor is corrupted).

    I love your videos, Peter. You are awesome.
    I would like to start taking photos. It is very creative activity but money were a problem for me but are not anymore. 🙂 Now I know that I just have to have a passion as you have and good results will come. Thank you so much for your motivation.

    It also matters how big you’re printing or what sort of display you’re using to view your images. Even how far you’re standing from a printed image. On Instagram on your phone most camera will be impossible to tell the difference

    The only difference between professional camera and an amateur is the quality. Anyone can shoot a good photo if you understand the lighting. Do not shoot against the light. Good camera lens focus + light exposure = good photo.

    I can still photograph better images with 35mm film then I can with digital, dlsr & mirrorless. But I shoot with all and even dabbled with friends M43 cameras on loan. It really depends on the one taking the pictures and their creativity and vision to drive the images.

    I have a pretty good phone camera. But I would like to buy a dedicated camera but I don't want to pay a lot of money (sub 250). Is buying old cameras worth it?

    I got those 5 correct. The cheaper camera had a deeper orange on the leather than the more expensive lens. Not for sure if that was due to editing or not

    I'm sorry but this is the most cliche thing ever for photography. Equipment doesn't really matter if you do basic photography. It is at the point where you have a vision and an idea but the equipment you own just isn't capable of capturing what you envisioned. For me, the thing that sucks the most on entry and mid range cameras is the noise. I could tell the difference between the photos you have shown us by looking at the noise around the darker areas. In best case scenarios (studio) this doesn't matter as much, but in street photography and especially in portrait this bothers me a lot. Same with lenses. I have found out that cheaper lenses lack the focus precision for most of the stuff that is not frozen in place. Stop this myth where "camera doesn't matter, it's the skill that matters". While that is not entirely false, YES a more expensive camera WILL make your work look better.

    Skillful people in any realm tend to use the best tools they can afford, but they can do great work with modest gear. This is no secret and it's hardly surprising.

    More expensive cameras work much better in low light or with fast moving subjects or extreme photographing conditions in general than cheaper cameras, hard to notice too much of a difference with simple daytime photos though.

    I'm not a professional photographer but most of my best selling photos were taken with a 16 year old fuji s9600 (9.6mp) bridge camera that i bought off ebay for about $150.
    When it comes to photography content is king. Good content photos from my old camera will always outsell photos from my newer camera that lacks content.
    More expensive cameras will work alot better in low light or fast moving conditions however.

    Thats maybe the difference between camera and lenses. Cameras can be used by good photographers always looks good but bad lenses will always give bad results. Specialy in nightphotogaraphy im realy happy that 1.2 ti 2.8 ap lenses are existing was not able to get the northern lights the same one on to pictures with kitlenses just because of the bad timings you get.
