Why do people feel like the camera they use defines them or others?

"DSLR folks"

"Mirrorless guys"

Us

Them

What does that even mean?

I have all kinds of cameras. I use the one that is appropriate to the photograph. Sometimes, I even use one that is not just for fun.

I have a handheld 4x5 camera that I made with a Schneider 47mm lens. Does that make me a "Film guy"?

Hardly.

I just finished bleaching a Cyanotype contact print from Angkor Wat that I will try coffee toning this afternoon. Does that make me an "Alternative process guy"

Ha.

I have $20,000+ in FF Nikon cameras, lenses, flashes. I am still interested in whether it will be viable in the future.

Try a Buddhist idea, "all things will pass, including the DSLR". Oh, wait, maybe that isn't right.

Why anyone would feel threatened by a discussion as to the possible future of a camera technology is beyond me.

To those who have contributed, thank you for some great ideas.
