Shot of film, FM2 so stop moaning about the lack of AF tracking
You prefocused on a spot where the car was going to pass and wait for the moment to release the shutter. If you had a fast shutter release, say 5 fps, then you’d be pretty cool, but remember that you only have 36 shots in a roll of film. Mortals were pretty used to shooting 3 fps to capture racing images and a motor drive was a must.
Don't deny this. Digital has made me lazy too but I also learn to deal with cost and budget controls. It's easy to get a great looking DSLR that does everything for you but at what cost?
The new EP-5 and Lumix GX-7 are both capable of 9 fps and a whooping 1/8000 sec shutter speed. I only had the chance to work with shutter speeds of up to 1/2000 during my analogue days.
I think you have to put your foot down now just to stop the nonsense marketing in image peddling that you need an expensive DSLR just to shoot good images.
Of late even Canon has felt the brunt of the smartphone camera phenomena to come out with an advertising campaign against it. WTF?
Is this all they have got? What about restoring value to the art of photography? Shouldn't this be the case?
Camera manufacturers have taken a wrong line by belittling smartphone camera photography. It exist because of technology and you can't change that.
Both Canon and Nikon have antiquated approaches to a business that basically saw the likes of Kodak go out of business. Instead of putting more effort into technology, they have instead put more effort in ad sell thinking.
Photography is evolving fast. People's perception will change as better products come online. How people will use these products will depend on the price and that has always been the case even during the dark ages of film photography.
