It does mine. My philosphy is: I don't take pictures, I don't create them, I find them. I never know when a cloudscape, a landscape, wildlife or something else that is interesting will pop up. I stand in awe of many of the forum members here who present lovely, saturated color compositions or crisp, high-contrast B&W that looks like it was shot at F64 by the light of a hydrogen bomb, and I have really tried to like system cameras with interchangeable lenses, but the truth is that I know that eventually I won't carry them. So I stuff my old D-550 in a pocket or dangle the G12 from my neck. Because the best camera is the one I have with me when I "discover" a photograph. What's your philosophy, and how does it affect your gear choice?
