Does size matter?
Serious photographers seem to do their work with hefty, impressive-looking cameras and a whole host of lenses, filters and other equipment. My confession is that I take all my shots on a compact which fits snugly into my coat pocket. For night shots I use a collapsible tripod which slides into a regular rucksack.
My relatively small Lumix TZ20 does everything I want it to, with a very decent zoom and full manual capability and a myriad of settings for plenty of flexibility. I’m comfortable with it and am pleased with a lot of the results.
A photographer friend recently said to me “it’s not how big it is, it’s what you do with it”. But would my trusty compact seem inferior lined up against a bunch of bulkier models?
Does size honestly matter? Is the eye of a photographer more important than the hardware that does the work? What do you think?…
