    We profess to make professional cameras. I'd love to hear your take on what exactly professional means to you.

    "The camera is arguably one of the most important of all inventions… it is the single tool that has the ability to stop time, record history, generate art, tell stories, and communicate messages that transcend language like nothing else ever conceived."

    "Everything in life changes... including our camera specs and delivery dates..."

    We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone with a bad attitude.

    For me professional means:
    "Getting paid to produce something that someone else will pay for..."


    *however in applying this thinking to professional equipment the black gaffa tape i use is proffessional equipment* hmmm... need to rethink that one.

    When you turn professional, you become an entertainer, and like every other entertainer, you don't want to get a bad review

    When it comes to equipment, I think professional means that something is built for the task. It will do the job that it's required to do and do it day in, day out, without whining.

    Actually gaffer tape does do it's job!

    Professional is having a set of skills and earning your living from applying them properly.

    Unfortunately in our industry there are too many people who don't know what professional skills are, let alone how to apply them!

    Professionals demand professional tools. A professional tool is one used by a professional to do specific job to the requirement of that professional for the maximum length of time - as opposed to an amateur tool which will only do the minimum required to do a specific job for the minimum amount of time...

    Does professional necessarily mean higher prices?

    Yes, it does.

    Probably the new RED camera prices will go higher…????!!!!

    I'm sure Sanjin would agree. After old, this old-timer Jap punk had absolutely no idea how to shoot gorgeous home plants, or distant, mysterious smoke chimneys, not to mention bold, ground-breaking "quick-and-dirty" tests!

    Madadayo!!!!! (in Japanese means "Not Yet")

    It is the thirtieth and final film to be completed by Akira Kurosawa. ...

    Plot Summary for Madadayo: They ask the professor: "-Mahda-kai?" ("Are you ready?"), and the professor responds "-Madadayo!" ("Not yet?") and drinks a large glass of beer.

    No excuses, ready for the intended tasks and also ready for all the unintended tasks involved. Professional means performance under pressure and performance that is far greater than what normal is capable of.

    That the camera relies as much on your skill as you rely upon the camera.
