Absolutely true. It has long been my opinion that it matters not in the slightest what camera you use.

Hmmm ... I dont know David.

Those old good photographers did carry around large cameras after all. They did that for a reason. You could find much smaller and convenient cameras back then.

So - I assume they cared very much about what camera they used.

the masters I have seen on interviews and read about cared insofar as picking the tool but none of the stupid brand bickering or tool bickering because in the end, it's the photographer who creates the photograph and not the camera.

just look at what Andreas said as a good example:

Andreas Feininger (1906-1999) 'Photographers — idiots, of which there are 
so many — say, “Oh, if only I had a Nikon or a Leica, I could make great 
photographs.” That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard in my life. It’s 
nothing but a matter of seeing, and thinking, and interest. That’s what 
makes a good photograph.'

replace Nikon or Leica with whatever camera

look who he was
