I also agree comppletely. The front end may affect 80%. While striving in
other aspects such as SRC, digital transfer or spending lots of money in top
gears may improve only 5%. Point and shoot cameras can produce great images.
It's the one who is behind.
Being a photographer for many years, I know more about composition, field
techniques of nature photography, and gradually have more and more feelings
about "the decisive moment". However, disappointedly I didn't learn as much
after years of field recording. For photography, many could list a lot of
useful and creative field techniques or composition suggestions. For nature
sound recordings, what is the list? Do we rely more on luck to get good
recordings? Do we have less control over what we can record?
Does nature sounds recording have "the decisive moment"?
