That tells us only about the behaviour of the Western rich part of the World, a minority population.

By perusing flickr I find that by far the most interesting photogs. are from Asia, Chinese in particular. The best still use a film camera, probably a Seagull and a 50mm, a copy of Soviet cameras, that were copies of 1930 Leicas. Of no commercial value whatsoever.

That tells me the truth about photography, far more than a poll in some Commercial Space.

Which tells me only the sad truth of late consumerism.Thankful if it doesn't contribute to pollute the environment for greedy, ultraindividual purposes. The West has lost moral superiority.

You can indeed shoot awesome material with v. simple tools a Chinese village can tell you.

Am.
