Camera Gear – Large and Small

This last week travelling around Suffolk, I took photographs with my Leica M10, M4 and Hasselblad V.

It made me think about equipment size.

The whole reason 35mm camera became so popular starting with the Leica, then the Nikon F SLR and on to the Canon F1, T90 and EOS 1, was there small light size.

With digital we got a huge jump in size; the current Nikon D5 and Canon EOS 1D are very heavy and much more difficult to handle then my old Hasselblad V. ¬†Even my large format camera the Ebony is lighter and easier to carry then my Nikon D800’s.

Its easy to see why MicroFourThirds is so popular, small and light has a lot going for it.
