Photography is with the mind, using a camera.... any camera.

I love this quote: a fresh version of a familiar cliche.

One can get too preoccupied with tech talk. Photography is about documentation of traces that accelerating charges leave in the universe by producing photons of varying frequencies. 
When a photon arrives at a sensor, having moved through the lens, it passes the bar to another quantum particle : the electron. 
We will see in the coming decade a better management of these electrons with better engineering. 
However, the mind only interacts with photons. Keep taking photos. With whatever camera you have. Trust your retina and your mind. That is where good photography is. It is the mind that gives any significance to these flying photons. And no technological breakthrough will ever match it.
