<<<The camera for you is the camera that your psyche feels best with. That your
subconscious can operate. And your creativity flows through. Don't buy it
because of its techno-wizardry or for its status. Neither one makes images. That
comes from you.>>>>>>

Hi Jim, Truer words were never spoken!

In so many cases cameras are bought because the person believes "it will make
great pictures!" and then they become disappointed when they don't get what they
thought they would. Then blame the camera, it " must have a fault" or problem.

We almost see that in here on occaision.

Ralph Morse an old time LIFE photographer was one the people responsible for me
learning about the value of equipment "Only if you know how to use it!" and any
guy with the money can buy every lens and camera in the world and can still have
his ass shot off by somewone with a simple camera if the guy with all the gear
and cameras doesn't know how to use it.

And no single camera is going to make you a great photographer, the "camera is
only as good as you the photographer!"
