    Well, at least you didn't have to coat the plate first... ;-)

    As already mentioned, everything has its place. My oldest cam, a 100 year old Kodak brownie box camera that still gets used. My newest, a Lytro light field camera. Rather box shaped in its own right, no shutter lag, no wait for focusing. What once was old, is new again. My favorite, at the moment, a Busch Pressman C. Why? I rather like all the "drama" and fiddling that goes into making an image with it. As a result, I'm pretty sure I have the largest collection of flashbulbs on my block.

    I think it is very unusual that we have all this technology, but that slow capture is the current "norm".

    Just as I think it is unusual that I can launch a web browser and wait for several moments for the "opportunity" to type a web page into the address bar.

    These defects are pervasive, and my hope for the future generation is... they will have plenty of jobs writing improved software that does all this better.
