I bought a $5 panoramic 35mm camera a few years ago and it takes much better photographs than I ever imagined. But can I ever get my five bucks back? (I have even used the camera professionally from time to time.)
Hey, I'll give you $6.50 for it, right now!
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.
