Heheh...this is probably regular 'big boys' toys' talk. The same happens for computers and cars. So what if the latest V6XXXXTI Roller-Coaster Boogie Monster engine can go at 800 km/ hr? You'll probably be stuck at 50km/ hr even on an expressway, in most instances.Originally Posted by agentmonkey
The photographer behind the camera is certainly the most important element, but some may dive deep into the technical stuff and rant on and on about equipment without even taking a single photograph. Equipment talk is sometimes about pushing equipment to the limits, and speaking about the 'what if' situation where a certain new feature can excel and produce good results where no other gadget has done before.
In the end, everyone has his/ her own strengths. Just as we need scientists to develop and research new technology and produce more capable cameras, we need those who are artistically inclined and have a creative eye to use these cameras to produce results for the public to see. Then again, just about everything in this world is an 'art' to a certain degree. Or, put another way, it is often said that some people get so good at their job that they've got it 'down to an art'.
