Is it the Camera or Photographer?

Photographic Passion, Travel

As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one that is always with you. Remember, it is not the tool, it is the skill. A skillful photographer will make the best out of a simple point to shoot camera. Never invest in an expensive camera until you felt your skill will further improve with a better camera.

Sam Haskin once said – A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said “I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.” He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: “That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.”

On the first day of my Vietnam trip in December 2017 my Nikon DSLR camera “packed up”, or so I thought. I only learned afterwards that it was the humidity of Hanoi City that caused the breakdown. It’s working fine now after a good hairdryer blow:)

The reason I share this is because my iPhone 7 Plus and Canon Powershot SX420 IS were absolutely super back ups during my ordeal. Despite this challenge, I could still manage to capture some great photos (See below). You can also visit my  website to for more on my Vietnam Photo Gallery
