    I just finished the last eight frames of a roll,with the cap on..Seems like I do that about once a year..don't use these small cameras very much..

    Lens caps are the enemy. Chuck em.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I haven't had that problem after I got my SLR. But with a 35mm compact it happened every once in a while. Usually with spontanious photographs.
    My dad used to have an 8mm film camera. One day, at one of my sisters graduation, he filmed the part where she received her diploma. Perfectly focussed, steady shot. Back home he realised he accidentally pushed the button right before filming, when he took the camera out of the bag. The outcome was a wonderfull film of my dad's lap, followed with a focus session right before my sister enters the stage. After that, darkness. Followed by an off focus hand, the inside of the bag.

    The best shots are the ones taken with the lens cap on. They were always perfect, except for the lens cap.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Now this makes sense to me.

    Off for a weekend shoot in Hocking Hills, w/lens caps.
