What would you do if suddenly had nearly all of your limitations removed? You'd probably do as I did and stretch into completely new areas. That's what I did, along with others. And that's why quality photographers today are producing such DIFFERENT work than they did back when they shot medium format on 160 Vericolor with just a few primes.


Very good point. IMO the most important technological advances in photography are those that free up creativity -- from dry plates to roll film, to 35mm and now digital. Hope I live long enough to see where it takes us next -- and have enough creativity left in me to do something with it.

BTW, I still have a Canon 100/2.8 FD somewhere in the back room. It was a sweet lens.

After 40 years of Canon and Nikon I'm now using a camera named after my toaster.
