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

There are different kind of people, here, there and everywhere. Both among masters and less gifted. Generalisations seldom are all that accurate IMHO.

I am not making a generalization, I am bringing a statement on what photography is in the end. Showing a photo of Ansel Adams gear hardly proves anything.

Ansel Adam´s gears.
