There's a philosophy, with a following, in the world of music:
For example, a guitarist whose instrument has but one pick-up and a volume control. The amp has no special effects, maybe just volume, bass and treble (like in the old days before 'prescence' was added). The amp output is clean and pure. No foot-pedals. The guitarist produces pure and simple sounds not a wall of distortion and the like.
Is there a place for such minimalism in the world of photography?
I ask because, from just one camera (a humble Kodak C643), I now have a Galaxy smartphone/8MB cam, a Canon point-and-shoot, 3 Sigma DSLRs and a Panasonic Micro Four Thirds! It just doesn't seem right somehow . . especially for an amateur who prints nothing, rarely takes any pictures of note and who, instead, spends more time getting anal about optical and photological theory.
