    • I used to shoot a lot of weddings. A pro looking camera was essential for getting respect from the wedding party. They took me most seriously when I was shooting with the 1DX.

      Now I shoot video on larger projects. I establish credibility and rapport with clients through a creative treatment and my portfolio before ever pulling out the camera. So it doesn't matter if I'm shooting with a Sony A7SII or a RED Raven. It's all about the shot. If anything, the pro-looking aspect of a camera is more a nuisance for me. I get crowds of strangers distracting me when I shoot with a MOVI + RED Raven on the street, but no attention if I'm shooting Sony mirrorless. And with pro looking equipment, I worry more about safety. The likelihood of getting mugged goes way up.
