What Camera gear do I really need to become a photographer

I do not suggest you walk into the first camera shop you see, nor order from the first camera online site, this is a risk and could change your personal beliefs forever in terms of being a photographer. What the box reads is not always accurate, remember the supplier as well as the manufacturer and the sales person is trying to make a sale. Google provides all the information you require to make the best choice that will fit within your budget and deliver the results you want at the end of the day. Take the time to do some research and read the reviews, the ratings, the pros and the cons.
