The photographer has been a slave to the camera for a long time. Good camera, good lens, Leica, etc – these were the masters of the photographers. But in a way, Daido Moriyama is a photographer who started to make the camera his slave. Photography is not about the camera. Of course we need the camera. If you want to write a romantic love letter, we need some tool to write it with. But anything – a pencil or ballpoint pen – is fine.

The ideal travelling camera – there is nothing comparable. Some see the  ALPA 12 TC as the digital successor of the defunct Hasselblad SWC but in  any case, it is the smallest and lightest 6x9 roll-film camera for  professionals. At the same time it is also the smallest and lightest  digital camera with more than 60 MP. The 12 TC is fully integrated into  the ALPA platform and all lenses, from the extreme 23-mm wide-angle to  250‑mm focal length can be used (of course only if the image circle is  sufficient for the chosen format). Accessories can be attached on all  four sides of the frame: for example a viewfinder, a small fingergrip, a  massive handgrip, a flashlight, a spirit level, a small exposure meter  or whatever else is required. The entire ALPA range of accessories is  available together with many accessories from other manufacturers. ALPA  is and remains an open system.
