17 Sep The Difference is Clear between a Point and Shoot Camera/Phone vs a DSLR
The majority of agents shoot their own listings with point and shoot camera technology. Generally speaking the image quality is great but the major fall back is the narrow angle of view captured by a point and shoot. This is a limitation which forces the focus on objects in the home vs layout of the home.
A Wide angle lens is an expensive investment. You also have to make the decision of whether you want a zoom or prime. A Prime will give you the sharpest images with the least chromatic abrasion but they are the most expensive. I shoot with a Carl Zeiss 25 MM F. 2.0 and the clarity is stunning. The lens is worth more than the actual camera body but the best quality comes at a price.
Even the entry level SLRs kits typically come with a lens which is less than wide due to a crop factor so you may have a solid camera back but you still may need to dish out an additional $ 700-1500 for an additional 10-14 mm lens
