camera myth

There is a myth with amateur and hobbyist photographers that good, meaning professional photographers, can make a good image with any sort of camera. Digital, film, point and shoot, a good photographer can do a good photograph.

I said a myth. It isn't true. Professional photographers, as myself, use a limited range of cameras and if we used another sort we didn't know would produce an image even worse then totally untrained. I only know how to use a small range. Same goes for film. Outside this,  make crap image.

The main three cameras below are what I use, currently. (Ignoring video, super 8 and 35mm. But that makes only six, oops, seven, forgot the ps digital.)
