I really need to thank everyone who has contributed to this thread so far. I am actually quite overwhelmed by the quality and content of the responses. For you all to humour me is truly heartwarming.
I know it is difficult to understand where I am coming from, as you have all kept up and moved on, as it were, with the constant, unrelenting progress called camera technology.
What's wrong with me? Why do I resist it all so intensely? I feel it in my bones.
You should meet my girlfriend, she has a similar disdain for any new kind of technology.
I miss the old cameras, I really do. My OM2n, my OM4, my Hasselblad 500C. I could buy any of these now, but somehow there is no going back. Digital has allowed me to capture much better photos, but I think I enjoyed the process more in those days. There was so little to worry about. Choose aperture, meter and shoot.
But as soon as I look at the results, I know that digital is the future. I just wish more manufacturers would remember what the old days were like when designing their cameras. These hundreds of menu items make me dizzy and frustrated. I can read about it and understand it all, but it is not what I want.
