Yet again, it is also possible that the role of toolmaker is essential and fundamental to who we are as a species, both in our distant origins and our future potential. Perhaps there is something to be said for using the right tool for the right job, after all.
The lead-in photo was captured with a Fujifilm X10, hardly a state-of-the-art, high-end camera; yet in the context of an easily carried camera with image quality adequate for a snapshot aesthetic, it's more than adequate.
