It’s not all about the gear or how much it costs
There is a lot of expensive, top of the line gear out there. You know all about it because it’s pretty much the only gear you see posted about on film accounts. Leica, Hasselblad, Contax, even point-n-shoots are getting pricey these days. But we’re here to tell you, it’s not all about the gear or how much it costs.
For example, more than half of the content posted on our social media is taken with a Canon EOS film body that costs less than $100. We often shoot with a Canon Rebel that costs roughly $15 paired with either a Canon 50mm f/1.8 or 40mm f/2.8–both of which cost around $100.

This camera looks cheap and is cheap BUT it doesn’t mean it’s incapable of amazing results.
I often find that I not only enjoy the experience of shooting with a Canon Rebel over a Leica, but I also like the results better. And not only that–for less than $150 you get a 2000th max shutter, a smart matrix meter, multiple exposure mode, a variety of other modes, exposure compensation, a flash, and so much more. Yes, cameras like these aren’t nearly as durable and may feel cheap, but that’s the beauty of them. You don’t have to worry about the possibility of breaking it because it’s easily replaced. That makes these great everyday cameras for travel, adventure, hiking, rainy days, etc. One downside is that they’re not mechanical like a Canon F-1, Nikon FM2, Leica m6, etc. But the Canon Rebel batteries are tiny and last forever, so all you need to do is keep a pair of batteries in your bag in case you need them!
