    anyone out there some times get frustrated with digital cameras? i find digital cameras like babies, they need constant attention, lots of money, and you cant ever drop them. at first i loved my DSLR (pentax istdl) and i still do but i find that it can get just a tad annoying sometimes with sensor cleanings, IMHO fake pics created through photoshop, and i find sometimes it just has no depth. i dropped my DLSR the other day and was freaking out, but when i drop m spotmatic i dont even think about it because they'll stand up to anything, so if you kind of in a sense see where im coming from comment cause right now my sensor is really making me just want to shove my camera in the trash.

    Yeah, the other day I wanted to throw my D70 away because there are too many things I have to go into the LCD to change. That and CCD blooming, i'm still ****ed about that. So, later this week when I go out again, i'm renting a 14mm rectilinear, gonna put it on my FE, and i'm going to use up the rest of my Tmax 100!

    yea i find digital interesting with the things you can do with it but i like the feel of film, and the rawness of it, screw RAW file format, my favourite camera of all time is my spotmatic and it only cost me $70.00, with 3 lenses, so i think ill take a break from digital, anyone with me?

    I dont own a digital slr but I do use scanned negative files for everything now. It just makes sense. But its from a small dedicated film scanner.

    Just as Mysteryscribe, thats what I did for many years... still do... occasionally.

    good scanner + medium format = very stunning results.

    Suggestion - stop making fake photos in photoshop...or is your pentax making fake pictures in photoshop by itself in the dead of night?

    I started with film too, unlike much of my generation which jumped straight into the digital age. In the end when I take a picture, and print it out to put in my album, they look just as good as they did on film. Better though since experimenting doesn't cost money anymore and I became a better photographer for it.

    I get frustrated all the time, but truth is I started with film years ago then dropped Photography almost completely for quite a wile. When I decided to pick it back up again I went over to wally world and picked up a digital camera.

    Now I must learn how to use it. This auto focus thing can't stay on the right target, blur detection thingy is just anoying the tar out of me, I can't seem to figure out if I can even adjust the shudder speed...I better stop now

    Yes they do our heads in at times, but we all have them :)

    All hobbies cost you money... Golf = clubs and green fees + others, cars for obvious reasons!!!, Football, shirts, travel and season tickets

    erm.... why would you want to?? try and be more careful, use a neck strap at all times

    see cars above, golf clubs and football shirts :D

    do that on there own do they?? either stop it, or learn to use photoshop better

    what the hells wrong with you.... its a camera not a basketball :)

    and buy a basketball, i think it would suit you :)

    By the way this reply was written with my tongue firmly in my cheek :D
    i couldnt resist....sorry :D
