Macro shot I took with a Prosumer level Canon Powershot Pro1:

Macro shot I took with a consumer (point and shoot) Olympus D 540 Zoom:

The difference is that the former costs about P35,000.00 more. Some people are willing to pay that much more to deliver great photos. If I had the money, then why not. Right now I just have to be satisfied with my good ol’ point and shoot. As the saying goes, it’s all about the photographer, not the camera. Err .. right?

I also have really steady hands. Or compensate with a tripod. On a very related note, Happy Thanksgiving!
