    Not a camera snob: I do appreciate the fine skills that went into making cameras, like watches, and I find it sad that digital cameras/telephones are destroying silver based photography, so I have taken it upon myself, as people rescue dogs from the pound, I will rescue cameras... I tried to explain this to my wife but she was, somehow, unreceptive...

    Some would call me a gear snob for wanting to use the best cameras that I can afford. I just want cameras that are compatible with the way I work, and that get out of the way of the process of making pictures so it's more about making pictures than it is about using a camera.

    I know this are generally digital cameras, but take a look. It's not the camera, but the skill of the photographer.

    I once lusted after a disc camera. I wouldn't dare consider myself a gear snob.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    I try not to be an equipment snob and look down on others, for my own personal equipment I like reliable professional workmanlike gear that you can come home with pictures with not excuses, and would rather spend my money on having my gear serviced than buying more and more equipment which makes more sense to me.

    No, your GAS is everywhere, all the time...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    This doesn't float my boat, I'm not a collector of vintage photographic equipment.
