Fuji users cannot apply for real estate photography jobs

Recommended Posts

I thought  the battle was done and the fact that only full frame cameras are professional was a thing of the past. Unfortunately is not like this. 

I have noticed that in some ads about photographers seeking for real estate photography, the camera required was full frame.  

I am speechless for the incomptence. Doies a 12mp full frame camera give better architectural result the a fuji xt2/3? does a full frame camera of 24mp (maybe with an anti aliasing filter on) give better result then  a fuji? 

I think that, as fuji users, we need to make ourselves loud. It not fair that we cannot apply for jobs when we definitely have gear up to that, 

Cheers

I suspect that arbitrary requirements such as this are put in place by people who are not photographers and are ignorant about sensor size, ISO and image quality.  They demand cameras with 24x36mm sensors, and for what?  To print 1x1.5 inch photos in real estate promotional magazine or to put on a website?  That's just laughable.

Uninformed people who "know" they are right about something they are ignorant of are next to impossible to educate.

Are these ads from a potential client that you are interested in ? Send them a fine print from an image taken with your Fuji, with an explanation that for that kind of work your not-full-frame camera is more than fine enough and other things matter much more than the size of the sensor.

This is the same kind of twattery that we encountered back in the late 80s to early 90s during the days of film.  People who had no clue about any aspect of photography would not hire someone to shoot a job with a 35mm camera - it had to be medium format. 

 

Why stop at medium format?  Why not only hire photographers who shoot with 8x10 in cameras?  Of course, 11x14 beats 8x10 for image quality; why not demand an 11x14 inch camera?  🙄
