But I do wonder if people that put too much focus on the trivial technicalities of camera equipment lose sight of the bigger picture and don't spend as much thought on the more important aspects to creating great imagery.

I do not find the technical side of photography trivial.

No, it is not tirval - but for this reason it is better done on your computer where you have more time than in the field and where you have the option to try out different ways without destroying your original photo.That's the idea of RAW shooting and for RAW shooters a lot of workload that is not important for the composition of the photo is shifted towards the computer and frees their capacity for work on the level of the core of photography.

It is the constant, the foundation. More so now with sensor based photography than ever before , seeing as unlimited replication is just a press of a button away.

That aside, people "don't spend as much thought" on the content because while basic math is teachable "creating great imagery" ...not so much.
