We all want or are looking for something Ant and its always a surprise when it does come, that`s the magic of SP, its not like planning or portrait shoot or heading off into some other controlled environment where we set the pace.

I sometimes start off with a particular street technique in mind. Pre-selected the camera and lens to help with that. Yes, abject failure is a possibility, we cannot command our subjects. But there is a bit of planning, so not a total surprise. It is success that is the surprise. At least for this novice.


Every time i go out with preconceived plans i rarely if ever get that type of shot

As I am still down here on the toe of the learning curve I certainly will not claim much success

But as a hopeless nerd I cannot help fussing with gear selection and technique. So I may as well embrace that


Gear is not what it's about. Any camera is a light box with a lens attached pointed at a subject. Is why I just use a 100d

Got a really good deal on a brand new unused boxed M6 with kit lens I'll put up for sale on ebay.

Anyway tested it out...

guess how much difference there is in IQ between the 6 yr old 18mp digic processor 5 SL1 and the 2 year old 24mp digic 7 equiped M6...?

As you likely guessed, absolutely no discernible difference

Only real thing that matters is decent lens and decent AF if you don't MF / ZF
