    Lanny,

    Hate to say it because Leica-haters don't like to hear it, but the only digital I have bought in the last 6 six years is the M9 and I am glad I did. I still shoot film 99.9% of the times but the M9 is the only digital that comes close to give me the same shooting approach and results. Of course it is expensive as hell but I already had all the lenses so what the heck
    Did have a D700 but that only lasted a month with me. Just can't get into ANY DSLR.

    I have a digital camera on my cellphone and use it constantly. I will be walking along and hear a fake shutter sound. I have a whole digital portfolio of the inside of my pockets. Did I mention I really dislike cellphone cameras. I also like a camera that has five foolproof controls, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Focus, Shutter Release and Advance. I don't care about histograms, GPS, Time and Date; and Photoshop makes my eyes burn.

    It also goes against the grain with me to spend more money on a digital camera whose technology will be so quickly outdated than I could buy a late model Hasselblad 500 CW model for.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I wish I had a DSLR, only for duplicating prints and slides, and for testing shutter speeds in cameras. My wife's new, fancy cellphone is beyond good enough for anything else I need a digital camera for, like putting things on ebay.
    f/22 and be there.

    I want a DSLR for my Pentax lenses. For documentation when I go on vacation, etc. I just don't like processing ten rolls of 35mm film after a trip, and then spend a month in scanning and editing it.
    I went to San Francisco in June and I have color film from there that I haven't even processed yet. I took another trip to Scandinavia just this past week and have a lot of rolls with mainly documentation of places we went. It'll take until 2011 until I have all that done.

    But, I will always bring my film camera for things that matter. Like family portraits, etc, basically where I need film to express something important.

    What The Duck?




    Couldn't resist making that quack!
    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.

    That cheesy fake shutter sound really cracks me up!
