    Auto exposure hold control????

    Why oh why did Pentax omit an auto exposure hold button on the LX? That camera is otherwise almost perfect, but without being able to push a button to "freeze" the exposure I have to either use the exposure compensation dial (and probably forget to reset it! Grrrrrr!!) or switch to manual. None of their auto exposure 35mm SLRs have such a feature, except one of the early K models. Oh, the shame!

    How many other SLRs have this foolish omission?

    You're certainly right about the exposure hold button on the LX. I always expose manually, but it's nice to be able to get the setting wanted, then use the button to hold it.
    I guess it was a philosophical thing with them.
    BTW, at least some later models, like my P3n, do have a hold button.
    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.

    T mode... They just leave B for almost everything when an old fashioned T mode would be so much better for long exposures... Ugh...

    Has any manufacturer made a film camera with shutter counter.. that would make a better indicator of the state of a used camera than going by the state of the outer shell.

    The Fuji GW690 has a 3 digit shutter actuation counter -> http://imagesandcameras.com/fuji-fuj...690-iii-manual

    In digital the counter is really helpful. You don't see a Nikon D3 with 120K actuations advertised as "amateur use only!" even when it's excellent cosmetically.

    I actually checked some sale offers for the Fuji GW690 and many has quoted the actuation count. I wonder if one can obtain actuation count for Nikon F6!

    On the subject of the Fuji GW690, it has two shutter release buttons. One on top and one on the front, I always use the front one as it falls conveniently under my finger. Unfortunately it falls conveniently under my finger when I pick the camera up to use it! When you only have 8 exposures on a film it is very annoying to waste one. A shutter lock button would be useful.

    Plaubel Makiflex has a counter, there may be others.
