    Don't get me started.. Film cameras are still working after many years of use. Try that with a digital camera. "Convienance over quality" thats our society mission statement. To create fake un-realitic photos.

    Seriously don't listen to these idiots. They know nothing but that which their corporate masters and vapid friends tell them to buy. I cannot even begin where to start on these tech-people who just follow all things new and digital. But I can tell you this: they're usually boring and cerebral as f*ck!

    It just seems to teach people to be in a freaking hurry with everything they do.

    This is a serious and expanding flaw in our current culture. I often have had cash register operators, counter clerks, etc. apologize profusely for a short delay that I didn't even notice and thank me for my patience, merely because I didn't complain about something that didn't bother me. This is happening more and more frequently all the time.

    I sometimes console myself with the thought Todd that my twenty five year old Canon F1's, that you can pound steel tent pegs into permafrost with, will still be capable of shooting picture when the majority of current digital SLR cameras are inhabiting the land fill .

    True dat! But what do you expect from a bunch of Yahoos?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Saw the article earlier this week. What a nice bit of the jokes on them. Wonderful. Don't we love the fellows who have to buy the new, endure the instant 50% loss of value and are happy for a few minutes. I just bought an new dot matrix printer.. was tired of $100 per set of ink cartridges on a printer that magically has an undocumented feature. It uses all colors to print in black and white. And if one cartridge is low it will not print at all. My wired phone works after severe storms when the cell towers are iced up and the power is out. And I pay no digital rights for my vinyl and tape music. I bought it and it is mine all the time. Old Obsolete.. makes the long lived cast offs plentiful and inexpensive. Saddens me that someone employes one so ill advised about life and happiness to offer opinions. (Opinion def. Less well held than full knowledge). Then again we knew that when we read it didn't we. I am not only obsolete but redundant as well.
