    That's 35 minute not seconds. I haven't counted but quite a few. Besides, the batteries the LX uses are cheap compared to the one used by the New F-1.

    There are not many features that are unequaled in the history of camera technologies like this.

    Canon or Nikon

    Which is better, Nikon or Canon? Pentax!

    No, seriously. With my PZ-20, which does not require a KA lens to operate, I can use every Pentax lens ever made with the exception of the DA lenses, which are designed for the smaller APS-C image area. I would need an adapter only for the screw-mount lenses. Canon changed the lens mount when they went from MF to AF, Nikon has AI and Non-AI, Pentax has screw mount and K-mount, and all you need to go between the two is the appropriate adapter.

    The camera I have has more bells and whistles on it than I'll ever use, and it was a bargain to boot!
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

This gives me a photographic opportunity such as the 35 minute autoexposure example below on Kodak Ektar 100.

    Actually, I've gotten auto-exposure times over an hour with the Nikon FE. Never tried it with the FE2, but I suspect there may be a few other brands/models out there that have this capability. Although I usually time long exposures manually to compensate for reciprocity - something the camera's meter can't do for you.

    Interesting since I tested all my Nikons too including the FE2, FG, FA, F3, FM3A, N2020, N70 and others.

    I suppose the LX's real time off the film monitoring of the scene for lighting change - and adjusting accordingly, makes it unique then.

    My Contax G2 does this quite well. At least up to a few minutes. Have not tried any longer. I think my RX does too.

    I have conducted exposures greater than 4hours with both my LXs.

    I tested all my Canons and they all max out at 30seconds. The Minolta vary up to 30seconds.

    For my purposes, the F-1 and the F2 have an equivalent feature set. All I need is a reliable meter and good lenses. I normally use manual exposure and match the needle. Occasionally, I will use exposure compensation. Both cameras have that feature of course. When I want to do any zone work with a spot meter, I go to my 8x10. For artistic work where the big negative is not necessary, I use the RB-67. My 35mm cameras are for sports such as wrestling, bicycle racing, track & field. I use them for street photography too.

    So at the end of the day, it is in fact horses for courses. One is better than the other given a particular photographic requirement and whim . . .

    Same for me, I appreciate them all and put them to good use as much as I can.
