    It's interesting to to speculate that H.C.B became a legend in his own lifetime with a small amount of basic equipment that most newbie SLR owners these days would scoff at because it was technically inadequate.

    Truly.

    When I go out with my RB or my 4x5 it is almost always with just a single fixed normal lens.

    I'm amazed that that almost never hampers my work.

    It's about making the pictures you shoot fit the equipment you have with you Mark

    How true, as I have students who say they have found an old camera and will it be any good? Perhaps I should say no, scrap it and buy an ipod.

    Knowing which lens he used, won't help you or I one iota to emulate his work, because we don't have his genius.
