I simply don't like to much automation, thats one reason I use cameras that are 50 or more years old, no electronics, no batteries,you have to do everything yourself,in fact I only recently sold my last 2 ''modern'' cameras, a couple of pentax autofocus jobs, in favor of a 60 year old Ensign commando, and I am getting more fun out of the commando than i did the pentax's,Richard
