    Program mode is for idiots
    and selective colouring is inane, the novelty died once it had been done thrice.
    just to make you argue with me, but i do largely believe what i said.
    EDIT:
    yeah sorry, allow me to be more clear, i just wanted to know what other people thought, and figured i couldnt do it without an argument, but yeah, i just find it annoying when people selectively colour, cos usually, it doesnt look too good, just cheesy. and i also am an advocate of people really learning about aperture and shutter, rather than leaving it on program and letting the camera think.

    Although bandying them around without thought for the effect on others may be different altogether.

    I don't get the point of this thread? Are you asking for an argument?

    Not annoyed at all. I'm too busy working in B&W film to worry about what others are doing.

    I taught my son in law on a manual camera... he went digital when I retired... Nikon d100 then d200 now... he went through all the phases and is back to shooting most everything manual... Not sure what that has to do with anything....

    You modern buggers, I'm currently using daugerrotypes to photograph a music gig. The metering is a bit tricky and the hour long exposures can be difficult, but I'm getting the hang of it. ;-)

    trying telling that to an astronaut :sexywink:

    that's a relief. you wouldn't want to be just talking in 'programme-mode', and not doing the thinking (which is important!) :sexywink:

    it annoys you and you consider it cheesy. that's fine. that's allowed.

    programme mode is convenient. if a computer understands exactly what i want to do, i'm happy to let it decide the settings.

    i've used a 35mm slr for over 25 years. when i select 400 iso on the dial, i don't know what's really occuring mechanically/electronically/piezo-electrically (?) that feeds those parameters to the light-meter.
    i don't really care either.

    the same thing when i drive a fuel-injected car, instead of one with a mechanical carburetor.
