Not so may knobs,

Some digital cameras have more iknobs, iswitches and ithings than all my four view cameras put together - Having a camera with lots of switchy things obviously makes digi-photographers clever in the perception of these digi-photographers

What sometimes happens when I am working near people is that they see a big camera and ask how to get their Eos to behave itself, I take one look at it and shake my head in a cloud of unknowing - This only reinforces their belief in their superiority

Two years ago at Hamlyn Bay a pair of German tourists asked me to take their pic with their Eos - They looked at the result and said "You have talent" in a disbelieving way, as if an oldie with a film camera shouldn't have talent - Perhaps I don't, but don't tell me at this stage
