Hahaha and so i'mHi stranger, welcome to PSG. I can't believe no one has your user ID already. Cool.
I don't have the answer for you, but hang out, someone will come online. We have a lot of photographers who can give you a knowledgeable response.
Thank u so much for this great informationyou shouldnt worry about resolution, that image is pretty small anyways
you should worry about three things: physical dimensions of sensor, quality of optics, and lighting
the size of the sensor determines the size of the pixels, which in turn determines the dynamic range of the image, or the contrast per pixel
the quality of optics determines the sharpness, and contrast
the lighting is really the key in any picture though. you can take amazing pictures with an iphone if you have perfect lighting
so dont worry about resolution, the whole thing is really just an advertising gimmick for cheap cameras.
to answer your root question, about what camera you should get, you would need a professional full frame camera, with a professional glass lens. but none of that matters if you dont have the skill and knowledge of lighting, and composition.
in the end it's not really the camera that makes a picture, it's the perso behind it.
yeah i saw it after i finished minesee my previous post, i guess we replied at the same time
Thank u very much I'll read it again and again to understand every wordIt is not the resolution of the camera that counts it is how you use it and knowing how it works.
Admittedly this has used a DSLR camera with a good lens hence you get more depth in a picture rather than a point and shoot.
The thing that make this picture and any other pro picture is the lighting they use an off camera lighting system and judging by the hot spots in this image they have used a couple of flashes with light mdifiers on ie a brolley or softbox.
The resolution effects picture size but you could take photos like this on a set up for less than $1000 with lights and lenses
But the key is education and knowing how to take these pics I could babble off lots of camera settings but when it comes to recreating it yourself it will be different unless you have exact same camera exact same ambient lighting and exact same off camera lighting and modifiers.
