Re: The Camera Matters.

Well it was rather a long post and I have to confess I nodded off a couple of times.

But of course you are right, the camera does matter. However to some the camera actually matters more than the final result. It is certainly well known in the camera industry that there are a high percentage of camera users who are certainly more interested in the camera as a desirable item in itself than in the results produced with it (other than test shots perhaps, which are just a kind of certification of performance rather than art). We can all probably cite examples of people who could bore for their country on the detail of how to use a particular piece of equipment but still not produce anything meaningful with it. And perhaps some of us are lucky enough to know someone who can produce something fantastic with whatever piece of equipment they happen to have, however humble.

But at the end of the day does that really matter? If 'specification man' gets pleasure from owning stuff that he doesn't really use, why should we care? Ultimately through his purchases he is making equipment more affordable, and possibly also more advanced, for those that might consider themselves 'artists'.
