    No, and it doesn't work with hands which are too thoroughly cleaned with soap.
    It works with normal hands normally dirty though

    The XM device, on the other hand, works with gloves as well.

    Hmmm..."Stupid things Camera Companies leave out".

    You know, I don't really mind if they leave out the stupid things...
    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.

    Perhaps the thread should have been titled "Things Stupid Camera Companies Leave Out"?

    Likewise, that's what prevents a camera from coming with a threatening textbook of a manual.

    To Nikon F4 users, you know how the analog frame counter actually counts backward when you're rewinding your film? How come more cameras don't have that?

    Didn't know the F4 did this too as my Nikon experience ends at the F3. The Pentax LX does this too keeping the frame registration perfectly so that you can go back and forth to multiexpose any frame.

    I don't know how useful it really is for most users, but it's nice to have. The F4 has both an analog frame counter as well as a digital counter which can be seen inside the finder. Come to think of it, I've never looked in the viewfinder to see if the digital counter counts backward as the film rewinds. Unfortunately, my own F4 is resting in pieces. Towards the end of its life, the analog and digital frame counters didn't agree with each other!

    How about stupid things they put it?
    Nikon introduced a feature into their aperture priority capable cameras (F3, FE2 & FA and others?) that sets a fix shutter speed when you load a new roll and advancing it to frame 1. This is to prevent you from accidentally setting it in aperture priority with the lens cap on and the camera setting a long exposure as you try to advance to frame 1.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned the annoying low shutter speed beep... seriously? (Nikon EM/FG/FG-20)
    I wish more cameras had a shutter button lock
    My F2 has one, but it's not nearly as efficient as the Nikon F3 and later (which just shuts off the power)
    I do love the FM2/FE2, "push lever in to lock the shutter button", but then they put in the stupid tap shutter button to activate meter
