"The size of your thing!"

No, not that 'thing'!
This thing (his words, not mine).

Re: "The size of your thing!"

I quite agree, a good photo is just that, a good photo. There will always be 'pixel snobs'. How many of us have had people say 'You must have a good camera' without knowing what it was taken on? As we know, it's not the camera, it's the 'eye' behind it. So, size DOESN'T matter!!

A good camera is one that focuses on the thing I am pointing the lens at (rather than something to the side of it, in front of it, or behind it) in time for me to press the shutter and take a picture. Everything else I can control - more or less.

Re: "The size of your thing!"

To reiterate a well-known truism, the best camera is the one you have with you.
