Absurdism

The camera always matters. Here's a quick test to prove my hypothesis. Go out and compose the perfect image, set up your camera on your tripod, and just before you press the shutter release button I kick you camera over onto the ground smashing it into a thousand pieces.

Now in the same scenario, instead of smashing the camera, replace the 70d camera with a 60d camera.  Does which camera matter in this scenario?  If not, how can you says "always"?

We already know that the camera can make zero to infinite difference.  Comparing to no camera or comparing a QVGA CMOS fixed focus cheapie (320x240 w/no controls except the shutter) to a PhaseOne P80 is not very interesting to any photographer. So why waste our time with the obvious answers?
