I’m sick of all the rubbish talked about camera gear.

Hi folks,

Recently I’ve watched excellent videos by Olympus visionaries Robin Wong and Jimmy Cheng and also Rob Trek and I’ve found myself in complete agreement with the points that they make. I’ve been asked quite a few times about what cameras and lenses I would recommend and “what’s the best camera” as if there is such a thing as best. I’ve never owned a camera (and I’ve owned quite a few over the years) ๐Ÿ™‚ that has revolutionised my approach to photography. It’s an impossible question to answer as just about any modern camera and lenses are more than capable of producing technically great results, the camera doesn’t choose the subject or frame the shot!. What it is about is composition, taking time to master basic techniques, developing an eye for a shot and one’s imagination, that’s it, plain and simple. The only thing that I will say is that my preference for lightweight, portable gear has greatly increased my ability to get to where I’m going and walk around for longer and thus get more shots to work with , the bottom line is that the camera is only a tool, simply a means to an end.

Kind regards

Leigh
