    George Eastman built his empire on the belief that people are inheirantly lazy. His motto:"you push the button, we'll do the rest". People want machines to do it all for them, that way they can pat themselves on the back for the little effort they put into life.

    I hate it when people absolutely insist on being binary.

    In short, I think that in this world of the microchip, many people think photography is about modes and introspective settings within the camera and fail to see the whole result is about what they see and the instant they chose to record it (which incidentally on many digital cameras is not when you press the shutter).

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    Which begs the question, if it was your ex-wife who wanted to go binary, would you still be married...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I ain't sayin' cuz I don't wanna appear to be hypocritical. Suffice it to say that I like girls of of all types.

    So... everyone here can "assume" that I'm a typical guy. Some assumptions are okay.

    I didn't know it when I married her but I think she'd have been happy with any old "Roman" however-many-way-photographic experiences. Me? I like stereo with opposite left/right lenses and I'm okay with single lens photography. After all, I've been getting by with single lens photography for a number of years now. I do appreciate seeing opposite images while I'm shooting single-lens though.

    It serves me right for ASSUMING that my ex was old-school analog when, at heart, she was modern DIGITAL!!

Then you could (and most people did) take their camera to a 1-hr place to get prints back. And eventually they lost the negatives. Only a tiny percentage did their own processing. Now a lot of us like doing things "the hard way"--fully manual controls, darkroom work, etc. But that's not because we use film. That's just us.
    OK, given this truth - I gave up on new Nikons when the F2 was replaced by the F3, that camera was so far beyond my understanding I promptly rushed back to the comfort blanket of my fleet of Fs, which I still use for process documentation in my no longer retirement - The current work is all large silver jelly prints from 10x8" and 5x4" BW neg, something I can understand, and I had to sense to find a place in the forest where my commercial darkroom could be inserted in the shed, 10x8" DeVere included
