I have been reading a lot about the coming death of film on this forum and other places and this got me thinking. I am really happy with shooting film at the moment as I am pleased with the results. Of course, if film disappears or becomes prohibitively expensive or cannot be processed anymore I will be happy to move to digital but what would be the ideal camera for me? Thinking about it, I have realised that what I enjoyed about using film cameras had nothing to do with the medium but more with the handling of my cameras (Pentax Spotmatic and Bronica SQ). What I like about them is that I can focus manually, set the aperture easily with an aperture ring on the lens (next to a distance scale, useful for hyperfocal focusing) and set the shutter speed with a simple dial on top or on the side of the camera. My ideal digital camera would therefore have no autofocus and only 3 dials (ISO settings, white balance settings and shutter speeds). Even an LCD screen would not be necessary (I find it quite 'exciting' to receive my pictures from the lab, and I could wait untill I get home to upload the pictures on a computer). I think the only cameras which come close are the new Leica M8, the Leica R9 or a medium format camera with a digital back, but they are really expensive. I am NOT trying to start a film vs. digital debate here. I am just curious to see if other people are more into the ritual of taking the picture and do not mind so much about the numerous features of their cameras. Do you think there would be a market for a basic (in terms of features), fully manual digital camera (something like a digital Spotmatic F or a digital Nikon FM3a)? Logically, such a camera should be cheaper (if there was real demand) and would really appeal to me. What do you think?
