    A better camera will give you additional tools for capturing great images, but so will better lenses, or more time, or a larger travel budget, or living in san francisco, or more attractive friends and family... etc :D

    Ultimately it comes down to a combinination of 1) dedication to improving your craft daily 2) participating in a dialogue with other photographers and taking in their work and 3) developing your own personal photographic sensibility and style to stand out and make your work important.

    Sophistication of equipment comes in at a distant 4th.

    If you have some time to kill I put all my iphone photos here (99% are watch related lol)

    Here's couple from that set....








    If you can't get your shot with an iphone you're not going to be able to get it with any other camera. There's just more buttons to push.
    YESYESYES!

    For years, I've given the iPhone so much crap because of the camera is inferior to many of its competitors. You're the only person I've ever seen that has taken beautiful pictures with an iPhone. I've read that iPhone pictures are prime candidates for editing because the pictures are raw due to a lack of noise suppression (which can be a con for recreational users).

    I'm going with NO too. If your composition is bad then it's bad no matter what camera you use. It's the person behind the camera that makes the difference.

    +1...I have to say that if you understand that a camera and lenses are tools, then you understand that there is a certain level that you get to once you have those tools. To get the maximum effect, you have to learn to use them, use them properly, and use them often. Take care of your tools is a part of using them, too!

    Better picture quality? yes.
    Better photography? No.

    However sometimes better picture quality can help sub par or boring photography

    I'm sure that I'll be repeating a lot of what everyone else has already said, but....

    A better camera can help lead to better photography, but if the photographer doesn't know what they're doing, sub-par photographs will always be the result - no matter the camera you own.

    From my own experience, a nicer camera / lens allows you to do things more quickly and with less frustration than a lesser camera / lens. It'll expand possibilities of what you can get down on film (or image sensor), and it'll help you maximize what you get out of your pictures. But, it won't teach you anything about composition, exposure, timing, or patience. You have to learn and develop those over years.
