    All the money in the world won't make you a better photographer. Use vast resources to travel to places where you have the opportunities to use your existing equipment in ways that you cannot at home.

    Big budgets can buy kit that'll get the pix that nothing else is capable of getting.

    A wealthy Arab commissioned Zeiss to design and build a 1700mm f4 lens, in Hasselblad fitting, because he's keen on wildlife photography. Will the results ever be published so we can see them?

    Big budgets allow amateurs to do the sort of photography that's normally limited to the fast-shrinking number of television stations or magazines that can afford it.

    Looking at your portfolio, you are getting much better results than many with deep pockets get Smile Smile
    To help answer your question what do you use for your macro shots, and what do you want to photograph with a bridge camera?

    Yeh there not bad are they, that x-s1 I linked focuses as close as 1cm, its pretty good for macro.

    Here one from my x10, same sensor, same macro facility.

    To answer a few questions:

    Basically my kit for the shots on my portfolio is canon dslr and a sigma 105mm macro lens. I just lately find it so hard to take all my kit out for the day and so wanted to purchase a bridge to make things easier and much, much lighter to carry around . The bridge would of course have to have a manual setting so I could set the aperture and shutter speed and have a remote release facility and a lens quality to match the sigma.
    Regards

    I spent the yesterday with about 3.5k around my neck at a protest - the image I sold for publication was taken on my iPhone - buy an iPhone.
