I have been asked by Dave of A Monkeyhanger’s motley medley whether the D200 that I have been playing with would be my Xmas present or was it just a passing fancy.
I am still not fully convinced that digital will give me any more than convenience. Film is so much more versatile, but maybe it is just an age thing, because I find technology getting in the way of just doing things.
Phones that do everything but make a clear phone call, not to mention being an intrusion: how many times do I get the comment “but I have been calling you” and people look so shocked when I say “but I did not feel like answering”
Every electronic item has ‘menus’ these days: what happened to well laid out buttons that were intuitive to use.
Cameras that just about do everything bar press the shutter……
And so it goes.
No the D200 will only be used when I have no alternative.
Sorry but he did ask!
Do go and look at his site as it has some wonderful images – see link above.
