I receive several emails each week asking what type of camera I use, and each time I am always a bit surprised. I guess that is because I really don't care that much about cameras, and to me they all do the same job: recording images. I would much rather discuss shoes, or jewelry.
We have at least 10 cameras around here, and I think great art and images I would love forever can be made from any of them.
The only photograph that I have hanging in my house that isn't mine, was taken by an artist who used a camera phone. I loved the photo before I knew about the camera, but then it made me even happier to buy it because it is right in line with my belief that, it doesn't matter.
That said, it is important to find a camera that you feel comfortable using, and DPReview is a great resource filled with people who love to talk cameras, and techniques. Me, I am going to go play with my camera phone.
***The photograph above was taken by my 4 year old. Who when I asked what camera she like using best said, "I really don't want to talk about cameras."
I guess that makes two of us.
