Take a close look at your current favourite camera.
You know there are cameras out there with better lenses don’t you?
Digital bodies with more features and larger, higher MegaPixel sensors?
Film bodies with better build quality, greater cachet amongst collectors, and a higher resale value?
But to focus on any of what others might try to convince you is missing from your own camera, is to overlook the beautiful, magical machine that it is.
Instead, make the most of all its inherent flaws, its endearing imperfections.
Embrace how it makes pictures not quite like any other camera you have.
Enjoy the uniqueness of the experience it gives you, and the happiness its brings you.
For all cameras are imperfect in some way.
It’s up to us to find the ones with that special chemistry we find irresistible, and celebrate them by using them as often as we can.
