Of Course Camera Gear Matters

7/02/2021 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

When Cartier-Bresson caught that ‘decisive moment’, his gear mattered. And it’s not because of high-resolution images or great dynamic range or super sharp motion capture. It’s because he was comfortable with his camera. And this is why gear matters.




By far the biggest determining factor in making either good and bad images is the photographer. You will take your best images with the camera you enjoy using the most. The idea that the ergonomics and aesthetics of a camera don’t matter, and it’s just for hipsters etc. is shortsighted and untrue.


A camera that makes you want to pick it up and use it, is a camera that will make you take more photos with it. And a camera that makes you take more photos is a camera that gives you more practise both using the camera and making images. There’s no better way to learn that actually practising something.
