What Is the Best Street Photography Setup?

One of the neat things about street photography is that there are so many different approaches to what gear one can use. Some prefer a simple, quiet rangefinder with a neutral focal length prime, while others will use a DSLR or mirrorless camera with a superzoom for the flexibility and more advanced features. What is the right option for you? This great video features a few street photographers discussing their thoughts on the topic. 

Coming to you from Gajan Balan, this interesting video discusses some of the best gear options for street photographers. Personally, it is hard to beat Fujifilm's X100V. I have never been a big fan of fixed lens cameras, but the X100 series was always an exception for me. They are the type of camera that stay completely out of your way, but also draw you into the process and really get you back into the pure experience and joy of photography. And after five generations, the X100 has been refined into a truly powerful camera with all the features you would expect from a modern model. Of course, that is just my choice; check out the video above for more, and let me know what you would use in the comments!
