It doesn't take the most expensive camera to take a good nature photo. This Monarch butterfly posed for a Canon S5 IS. The photo was cropped for display. http://gallery.me.com/james.cu...g?ver=12513872570001 I like the curled proboscis.

So true! Never say "you must have a good camera" to a photographer. That's like telling a musician "you must have a good piano" or a writer "you must have a good pen".

Nice shot btw!

Nice photo! I bought a Canon S5 IS but haven't dedicated too much time to the the macro setting. I just wasn't getting the same results as I was with my Coolpix 995, which has an excellent macro. I'll need to revisit the Canon macro.

Re the statement: "It doesn't take the most expensive camera to take a good nature photo." The operative word has to be "good" here as in: "okay or pretty good, but not great". If it were not, then it would be in opposition to the statement: "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch" because we'd all be spending less money and carrying less equipment. All things being equal, a pro camera and lens will give better results than a point-n-shoot and will enable you to get shots you couldn't get otherwise. The statement that is a truism is: "If you own a camera, you are a photographer. If you own a flute, you are a flute owner."

Hey Rich. Isn't the quote "If you own a camera, you are a camera owner"? You have to know which end to point at the subject to be a photographer.
