I shot these on the GR, but I also took a bunch of versions of this same picture on the a1000, because I thought 95mm equivalent + closer focus would compress depth more and look better for this - but ultimately I thought the GR images looked better despite having to crop way more to get the close framing with a 28mm equivalent lens...
But these versions from the a1000 had slightly different framing, so here are a couple

i will fight anyone who says you need to buy an expensive camera to do real photography

hot take we need to apply the same mentality of "you don't need to always buy the latest phone as it comes out" to professional camera equipment

get yourself a dinky DSLR from 2004

unless you want to shoot video or need real time preview on the LCD, it'll do you fine
