...I reckon they also got a bit of help with lighting, which is fair I guess, a bit daunting if you've never used them before (I remember my first time using a studio setup, I coldn't get the protectors off the heads!). There's a real difference in lighting from before and after the judges first visit, and in one scene someone is moving lights around in the background while they're interviewing the contestant.

On one hand, as my partner pointed out, it did reinforce that it's not just a matter of buying a fancy camera, there's a lot more to know too. But then, as Gary said, a lot of that 'background information' (lighting ratios, posing techniques, hiking safety, more 'involved' composition etc) aren't looked into, which almost does say 'fancy cameras take good photos', 'expensive pots make a nicer stew' etc...
