    While I do appreciate quiet cameras, I was thinking the other day about the times people have said something to me while doing street photography (which I'm quite bad at ). Anyway, it was never because of the sound of the camera and always because they saw me raise a camera to my eye. Your mileage may vary of course.

    A classic remedy for that is to use a camera with a waist level finder.

    A Rolleiflex TLR, Exakta, Nikon F(x) and other interchangeable prism cameras can do that for you.

    Absolutely. Was just pointing out that it's not always (or even usually) the sound.

    I've always wanted to try out a 3003.

    I know my else 50d is loud compared to most cameras. Once I got my Elan IIe I was so surprised how quiet it was. It felt like shooting with a Nikon dslr. Id say go with the Elan. It's a great camera.

    Someday I'd like to have a Contax G2 system (Or rather ideally a Leica, but that's way down the road)

    So the true answer is: Technique > Gear

    That last line is very true. Knowledge, technique/skill comes first, absolutely. Armed with that, you can do anything with any gear you come across. It all boils down to knowledge and technique. I can do with much lesser cameras what I have been doing for years with the EOS 1N!

    There's nothing like the feeling of being happy with what you already have .

    Amen.

    Though I'm never unhappy with my gear, I'm always on the hunt for something new. Sometimes I just have to force myself to knock it off and just shoot lol.

    G.A.S.... It's an affliction.

    I know Abram, I've been there and have the T shirt, but have eventually arrived at the realization that what prevents me from being a wonderful photographer isn't my lack of equipment, but ability
