Image speaks, gear doesn't. Photography has never been about the gears. Simply having the best cameras and lenses doesn't ensure the best images.
Digital imaging has grown dramatically and now everything seems digital. But, all gears have advantages as well as disadvantages. For me, along with digital, traditional films still remain alive. I simply love and appreciate the millions of grey from tradition B&W negatives and wet prints; the brilliant and vivid colors from transparencies; the astonishing image quality and total and perspective and DOF controlling from large format cameras; the silk smoothing feelings from manual focusing lenses, etc. For years, I've owned or played a wide variety of gears, from 35 mm, medium formats, to 4x5 large format; from point and shot, rangefinder, to SLRs; from Seagull, Panasonic, Yashica, Mamiya, Canon, Nikon, Contax, Hasselbland, Wista, Linhof, Carl Zeiss to ...
All media are effective, no matter it is digital or film; no matter it is 35 mm, medium, or large format.
