I could argue the exact opposite with racing cars. No driver in the world will hit top times on any track with a 100bhp economy car. Each genre of endevors will have it's own threshold of equipment dependence, where photography is we cannot pinpoint, but i would guess it's somewhere in the middle. Is the camera as important as the car to the race car driver? Probably not. Is it more important than the brush to the painter? I think so.

One can spend $50 on a sound system or $10,000.  The electronics gearhead is analyzing the recording and delivery, but the art conscious listener is engaging the emotion of the artist.  Most of the art is delivered in the lower end of the cost/technology range.

The passion of the instant, IMHO, is captured by the photographer for the art conscious viewer with most tools in the low end of the cost range, however, the gear heads are more worried about how to improve the focus of the left ear of the dog than how the passion of the instant is delivered in the photo.

It may sable's from north east Russia are better from some types of water color brushes than those from north west Siberia, but the emotion of the painting is delivered with either.
