What Kind Of Camera Do I Need?
All you need is a camera, a computer, and an internet connection! It's just that simple. IPS is camera agnostic.

The problem with that approach is that photography is always evolving and current tools will be obsolete in a few years. You will learn how to take great photographs and that skill will last a lifetime.
