What about equipment? How important is it?

Equipment is obviously very important. If you don’t have it you can’t take pictures.

There are a couple of other things, as well.

You need to be in tune with the equipment you use. The brand does not matter, but there are, however, different looks with each.

As long as you are aware of that.

I use a small Leica X, and a larger Canon D. Contax G, as last reserve if going with film, which I hardly do any more.

Shooting in colour I clearly see the difference. The Leica has a much cooler look. The Canon is warm.

The Contax goes with the film and is sharp beyond reason.

This may, of course be objectively wrong, but science says is not that important. Your perception of it is.

Feeling good makes better pictures. Easy as that.

Your decision. Only.
