Very factual... I started years ago with equipment equivalent to a Potato and worked my way up over the years. Sometimes I look back on old stuff and get amazed by what I was able to do back then.I have expensive gear now, but I started and still use inexpensive gear. It doesn't matter the price tag of the gear it's how you use it. We all have phones that have better cameras then oscar winning films, so it's REALLY what you do with it.
