People think that photography is based on equipment, 'if I get a a 'Pro' camera I'll be able to take images like the Pro's', unfortunately it's not true, you can't buy being a good photographer, no more than you can buy being a good musician or chef.
Any camera is just an image recording device, it records what you point it at.
Getting what you point it at is the hard thing to learn, lighting, an interesting subject, camera angles, composition, lighting angles, the 'moment' etc. etc.. Getting them together within a frame is what makes great photographs.
A 'pro' camera can make getting the shot in difficult conditions easier, it can have all the functions, e.g. auto bracketing for HDR, it will be better built, but that's about the extent of it IMHO.

indeed - owning a £70,000 steinway grand does not make you a pianist
had a go on one once actually, found the keys a bit on the heavy side
My wife played the piano on the QE II, which came from the Queen Mary, and it didn't sound as good as her own little piano.
...interesting, any thoughts on why it didn't sound as good?
damp would be my suggestion too
when I was a kid the piano got moved into the kitchen/dining room and it was never really the same
not really an issue any more, can't have an acoustic in these modern houses, walls too thin... so it's all digital and consistent... love my tritons and the Nord I play in the blues brothers band has an amazing Steinway, fender rhodes and wurlitzer - not to mention the Hammond B3 which screams Green Onions out when you add a bit of distortion and hit the fast Leslie speaker pedal...
do miss the acoustic though
when mum and dad went out, I'd take all the panels off it and play with the hammers showing - the sound uninhibited... amazing..
Liberace used to play the Grand when it was on the Queen Mary. All I remember is it was white.
My wife has had her Rolands KR500 for about 30 years. I had it reconditioned when we moved to the wild west 19 years ago, still going strong.
