But she said:

949 that edited out the glitch that I really liked. So I'm stuck with
using antique electronics because this work was literally composed
with that machine".

Certainly not an endorsement of better equipment.

Not an endorsement of "better" [read "newer"] equipment, but her statements seem a little contradictory... i.e. I shouldn't need "a certain piece of equipment" so I can "really do something", and yet she needs "a certain piece of equipment" to make use of its glitch...

I'd be surprised if someone further down hasn't linked to Ken Rockwell's site, and his essay on "Your camera doesn't matter". Of course, Ken might not be so (in)famous outside of the Nikon forums.
