    You have just wasted several minutes of my life, which I can't now get back.

    Yeah. Try doing that with an F. I'm pretty sure it would defeat the blender. However, as blendering an F is a crime against humanity, substitute with a large chunk of solid brass bar stock.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Well, I did think I was here to learn more about analogue photography and how to improve my own efforts, not to be directed to supposedly amusing videos of some people, who seem to be of a somewhat retarded nature, destroying photo gear (even digital).

    It is not destroying photo gear; it is destroying imaging gear.

    As an Olympus user of both film and digital gear I wanted to cry, but the fire at the end made it worthwhile.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    Think of it as Olympus's punishment for discontinuing the OM System.

    As someone who was brought up in a relatively poor environment, (think having to save up pocket money to buy a 120 film), I'm sickened when I see simpering "rich kids" destroying photo (sorry, imaging :rolleyes: ) for a "laugh".

    You may not like digital photography for whatever reason (sorry, imaging :rolleyes: )...but what's the point of destroying good gear? I really hate VW cars , after having owned one which must have been built on a Friday-afternoon (we christened it "Adolf's revenge" ) , but I don't take a hammer to my neighbors Audi.

    At the end of the day, digital imaging (got it right that time ) will win the day...it's 95% there now, quicker, easier, cheaper and more reliable for the casual user, and much more versatile, productive and economic for commercial and scientific use. There are things like Astrophotography (which I do myself) where analogue cannot handle most present-day work. Being a Luddite will not alter that.

    Yes, some of us, myself included, will continue analogue for some work while materials are available and for particular artistic results , just as I will continue my watercolor painting for another kind of artistic result. But, just as I don't do my laundry by hand nowdays, I shall use the most suitable tools for the job in hand, even if this involves digital imaging (there, I've got it right with no prompting. )
