My camera, which isn't all that old, is giving me trouble. There are times I click on just the most perfect shot....and nothing happens. So I click and click again.
I've taken some gorgeous pictures with that camera, which have been sold and hung as art. Not to brag, but I am a good photographer. I waste very little film, but recently, I've been wasting more, since it's not working well. Also, I discovered that I don't have the focus flexibility I really need. It's great for landscapes, distance etc, but it's not the perfect camera for getting photographing the grandchildren. Now, tell me, what's more important, the sunrise or Hallelie and Porat's smiles?
Now for the problems:
- I don't like the quality of digital prints.
- the time-lag when shooting with the digital is toooo loooong
- composing via the mini-screen is difficult for middle-aged eyes
- and the view-finder isn't all that comfortable to use
- there are too many small pieces and stages to worry about, like those little memory chips and the battery power
- so it's harder to be spontaneous and just keep my camera in a bag to be pulled out whenever
- I'll have to learn a whole new system to use on the computer, instead of just handing the film to the guy in the shop
So, if you have some recommendations for me, please don't be shy. I need all the help I can get.
