    Yeah, if you use the plain prism with or without the clip-on meter. But if you use a metered prism, well, there's a battery in there somewhere.

    Nope, no battery. They are called Photomic finders for a reason. They are powered by a tiny pellet of Nikonium, which must be changed out after it reaches its half-life of 685 years.
    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.

    Two pellets, actually, that look very much like mercury batteries.

    No joking on APUG! You start joking around and nobody will take your every word seriously. Joking will spread to other forum members, and pretty soon nobody will take anyone seriously... oh wait.

    Phine with me. Phollowing your pheelings is good. It means you're not a fony.

    In that case I'm going to get me a dozen of them.

    Is not simple copy. Is copies produced in anticipation of development of fine Soviet technology. Precognition demonstrably at work.
