Most who come to this Blog are not interested in becoming better photographers. Most do not want to know what it takes to craft great images. Most don't want to hear that equipment doesn't matter.

Captured using an old Canon T70 SLR that was a free gift from someone who didn't want it anymore. The film was Ilford Delta 400 that I found on sale for $2. Equipment isn't important.
These people believe that having the latest Nikon or Canon (or whatever) will improve their images. You see, it is not the photographer creating the images, but the camera. And the more expensive the camera, the better. It's not about understanding what a great image is. It's about having the best auto-focus, or high-ISO noise control, or most megapixels, or sharpest lens.

In other words, if you cannot create a great image now, you will not be able to do so no matter what camera you buy. You must learn first how to be an artist.

Captured using a $20 Holga 120N.
Do not worry about what cameras or lenses you have or don't have. Use whatever it is that you do have. Push yourself to be more creative. Push your own unique voice into your images. Be an artist.
