There is a saying "From the Hip." It has a similar meaning to W. H. Auden’s words “Leap before you look.” From the Hip" is, in short, about a fast gun. In case of a camera, take a photo before holding it. To put it Auden’s way, "Shoot before you think" and don't let your thought catch up with it. While you are thinking so much, what you want to photograph will look different. The GR- in the extreme- is a camera that enables it because you can take a photo with just a stroke of your fingertip.
