Frankly I am amazed Henri Cartier Bresson managed to take any situational photographs at all.

Expectations and standards were very different then.

Many of Cartier Bresson's photographs, wonderful as they were, would not be considered up to the technical standards of today.

What held Bresson back was not the speed of his autofocus (he used zone focus which any half-sensible street photographer would do) but the quality of film.

If people stopped obsessing about their overkill cameras and looked at how he did it, they would achieve a lot more and spend a lot less.
