    nice video pal. Yes i like the D3300, great camera! I use either my digital Olympus OM-D EM10II or my film OM10 camera, both great for the street IMO. But like you said, any camera that takes photos is a street camera!

    Great video! I mainly shoot with a small Nikon point and shoot (Coolpix A300) which, because it's so light, I always have with me. Occasionally use my iPhone too and am shooting a bit of 35mm too, just for the fun of it. The best camera is the one you have in your pocket at the time.

    Excellent video. I loved where you said (paraphrased) "the camera doesn't take photos, it takes the photos I tell it to take" Exactly. With your permission I would like to use those words 😀
    Three thumbs up for your video.

    First, love your photos Sean, you got a good eye. Second, you're a wise man, all you say is true. Myself, just started with a Canon 1300 and a 50mm lens and have been very happy with the results. But, funny thing is, if you'd listen to the revues, the 1300 is shite because the sensor is too weak, it doesn't have a flip out screen, the battery is too small… Stop it! It takes pictures, period. Hahaha! Anyway, keep on taking great shots mate

    I like what you say Sean..if Richard Wagner were alive today he'd be composing music with a moog synthesiser! that would upset the classical f*&+ing purists!"

    The best camera for 'any' photography..is the one you have with you at the time, we all suffer from GAS to one degree or another, but in the end it's all about the image!

    I use a Panasonic GX80 for my street photography, I like the size and weight and for me, point to point focusing is probably the quickest I've used. I've also used my LG G5 mobile phone on times 🙂 The best street camera is the one you have on you at the time. Keep shooting 🙂

    Just what I needed today, thanks. I listened to this and thought, ah sh** he's right. "And because you haven't got the gear, you can't get the shot. That's bullshit. Get out there and take photographs. … You're the photographer. Go and get the photograph, go create photographs." Very wise, honest and true. THANKS!

    Finally an informative video worth viewing, and that should be viewed by everyone! You should retitle this video "beginner photography tips 101" so beginners are drawn to this. It's such a battle to convince people to use what they have when there's a million people all over the web saying "you need the best of the best to get results". I can't remember which film maker said it, but he said "it was never the digital quality of my films that made me successful, it was the content, the angles, and the subject. The 'high quality' recording equipment I'm now able to afford is a luxury, not a necessity".

    The ideal would be the ability to record images without a camera at all. 🙂

    Thanks for the fine video. It is all about the love of shooting not the latest gear. I like using my old manual focus Minolta film cameras on the street. Love your images.

    My favorite pictures are shot with cameras from 30 years ago so I don't give a shit about having the new and best gear. If I have 1000€ for my gear I would invest 600 € and take the rest for traveling and having a good location to shoot.

    Sensible message – thanks for the video! I have a canon 60d, which is heavier and noisier than I would like for street work, but it still takes photographs 🙂

    Been feeling sorry for myself lately that I don't have an X100T. Thanks for the wakeup call Sean!

    Sean you just made me feel good about my old advice. 'Its not the camera but the operator"! I was getting all caught in the Bullo shit ads, Thanks for getting my feet back on the ground.

    You know my photography, and my fuji camera, not the best camera for what i do, but i stuck with it, and its paid off, its still not perfect, but there is no perfect camera! And this snobbery about iphone street photographs drives me mad, i dont always carry my fuji, but i have my phone on me all the time, and now and then i do use it on the street if the opportunity arises, last time was when some polish chaps "dropped" a wedding ring down the drain. elbow deep in all kinds of nasty crap, who really didnt like their photos being taken lol them, "you cannot take my photo" … me, holding up my iphone, "yes i can, this has a camera on it" suckers =) oh, and no camera is truly weather sealed, its a fallacy! xxx
