Professional photography gear has become good enough to handle almost any situation you can throw at it. But how about budget gear? This great video takes a look at how far you can push a basic DSLR and kit lens and if it can stand up to the demands of a professional photographer.
Coming to you from DP Review and featuring Nigel Danson, this awesome video follows Danson as he works with a Canon SL3 DSLR and kit lens. The SL3 is a barebones DSLR, but it still houses a modern sensor and features that one would never dream of even just 20 years ago. Personally, I think the lens is much more important. Any modern camera will have a sensor with enough dynamic range to create decent photos, but it's up to the lens to render those images with enough sharpness to take advantage of the sensor's resolution. Of course, there are certain limitations that make some genres more difficult than others to shoot without more specialized equipment, but you might be surprised by just how much you can do with budget equipment as long as your technique is sound. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
