The Best Camera

BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
@ VOL 132 ON JAN 27, 2016

"It's a bit embarrassing to talk about the tools like this, but this comes back to, after using 1000's of cameras, what I think the best camera is. I think the best camera is...."

What's the best camera ever made? Notorious photography hack and noted local yokel, Brian Scott Peterson ought to know. After all, in the course of 20 years of making photos, nearly 1000 cameras and lenses, have passed through his possession. In "The Best Camera" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 132, he shares some musings on the most treasured of his arguably modest collection, focussing in on the very best one.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, May 23rd, 2016.
