Neither. It doesn't imply anything.

I take my 5x7 Nagaoka into the field because it would be sheer lunacy to lug my 5x7 Sinar P. The Nagaoka is a pleasure to carry and use on the fly; the Sinar would be a nightmare of burden and hassle. OTOH, in a studio setting with a photographic task that requires a complex setup, sometimes the Sinar is a better choice. It's purely a functional decision, has nothing to do with how I was trained or what my philosophy of photography is.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
