    You guys will get a kick out of this...

    The other day I was hanging out with a good friend of mine (a real estate agent I've shot commercially for) and we decided to go for a walk...I grabbed my AE-1P and off we went...as I was shooting, she asked me if that was the camera I used for work...to which I launched into a long explanation about how for work I use a pair of digital 30Ds, whereas this is an old film camera I shoot just for the fun of it...

    After my long-winded explanation about how much fun film stuff is and how different they feel from digitals (she's into cars too, so I told her it's kind of like leaving your '08 Corolla home to drive a much slower, less comfortable, but infinitely more fun and quirky Model T)...she only had one question...

    "So how many megapixels is it?"

    Is she hot? Details man. Download some science on that lady and get them digits.

    and one day I will add an AE-1P to the stable, just looking for one locally that isn't 500 dollars. My father used to shoot one when he was my age, with the 50mm 1.8?

    Statements like that will never happen in the digital age.

    I wouldn't say never. Rarely? Yes. Never? Next generation maybe.

    Most of the 35MM negs I have scanned when developed are around 16 MP. A few have been over 20.

    The Nikon scanner has given me 68Meg negatives, which is way more than I need, however, really incredible image of Mr. Rainer.

    Good morning, LowRiderS10;

    It does seem that you, too, have encountered in our Pacific Northwest another "modern" photographer, or at least another person with a passing interest in modern photographic equipment. May I refer them to my signature line? . . .
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    I don' t mess with them nasty pixels. I store my photographs on the molecular level using the latest in nanotechnology.
