Just because…

…I can.

The number of gear-related hits I’m getting are a little bit alarming. If you’re new to this site, you should probably know that I don’t write about gear much, and when I do, it’s inevitably use-based. I use good gear and there are plenty of others who can tell you, more lyrically than I, about why and how its technology amazing. With good tech as a base, I prize my gear for how well it enables me to do the kind of work I like to do, and to explore the work I’d never otherwise be doing.

I’m happy to tell you about what gear I use, but for everyone who’s been kind enough to drop me an email to ask me about gear advice, I really can’t tell you which is better. Better is entirely subjective. What’s better for me isn’t necessarily going to be better for you. Also, if you’ve read the form factor post, a better, faster camera doesn’t necessarily mean you (or I) are going to like using it more.

It’s important to like what you use. There’s no substitute for trying before you buy. So try, people, try!

    1. Hehe, no I do often get emails to do with gear advice. Some stuff I can reply to and others I can’t.

      I did actually send you a reply, btw, but the email bounced. Let me try again with this address.
