    I've seen EP write a lot about photo equipment, but... photography?

    So why is his marginal opinion generating all this furor now?

    What furore? The discussion seems to have been quite rational, at least to me!

    Regards,

    Boredom, perhaps? And the innate need of a beleaguered tribe that is nonetheless prone to internal dissension to rally around a common enemy?

    Besides, everyone chuckles when they say his name.

    Yeah, they say "Putz" rather than "Puts".

    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.

    That and perhaps because small outboard engines and other rear-end motors go put-put-put?

    YES, it does.

    Next question Please.

    DO little green men on Mars use Film?

    YES, but most shoot IR Ektachrome to get the best contrast with the Landscape.

    What about when they travel to Venus?

    YES, but they need to use a Skylight 1B and load with Kodak Noscreen.

    I am ever less sure about this. Is it an aide-memoire? Is it a variety of poetry? I quote a friend, Jean-Marc: "Druillet's French is very... poetic... zat is to say... meaningless."

    (The 'zat' is illustrated by my remarking to J-M that after many years living in the US, his accent still remained the same. He replied, "Of course! I work verry 'ard to keep zees accent!")

    Using film since before it was hip.

    And what I did last night: again reproduction of digital image, customer want it as a photograph. So. I have shooting today also, and tomorow also,... So.

    I think personaly what Puts means when he say "photography" is behind the answer, and he is right or should visit a doctor, or he too watch TV a lot.

    I tend to agree with you.

    Erwin's sentiments seem to change in line with his status as a paid producer of Leica marketing collateral and whether or not Hove Books has pledged to pay him the fees he feels they owe him from the last edition of the "Leica Lens Compendium".
