Sakura by Roberto Campos
My camera is not the best out there, it's not even considered to be that good in the mirrorless department, but I love it deeply. Also my decrepit old lens that I somehow got to perfectly mount on it. I love how quickly I got used to manual focus when before I was so afraid of it and how retarded I feel when I use a normal camera now. My camera is not perfect, I sometimes feel like I've outgrown it and that I could use a better one now, to keep on learning, but that doesn't make my set up bad. When I see images like this photo, I am still surprised about this little camera that could and until I don't get "wow" moments like this about my camera I don't think about changing it. Because now it is a part of me, an extension of my ability as a photographer. I know it in and out and it lends itself to me and my petty demands. I don't think buying the state of the art leica would make me any better, if anything at first I would be producing even worse images. Why change what ain't broken? some people say. I don't think like this, believe me, I've tried a lot of things with this poor camera, I've taken it to hell and back and I know now it's strengths and it's limits. I am grateful I found this by luck, I found my lens by luck and I've found myself a lovely hobby I enjoy.
