What Camera for Street Photography

002314_2015_March(Ricoh GR)

I am with a local photography group but I haven’t really taken part in its shootouts. Recently the members had a street photography meetup and there were some nice shots. What I found interesting was how some used intimidating, at least that’s what I think, big DSLRs for shooting on the street. Those cameras are the least ideal for shooting candid images. And the zoom lens mounted on them would do nothing but make the photographers feel little need to go into where the action happens for the images, which is the gist of making street shots tick. For that reason, if you do street photography, use a compact and a prime lens.
