Hall of Famer
- Jul 3, 2010
I love my digital cameras, I really do, because they allow my to shoot lots, guilt-free.
But two things bother me about digitals. The first is that I seem to belong to the camera of the month club. No sooner do you buy a camera, but the next new "improved" version of it comes out . . . and you don't know if it will actually be improved . . . there may be some tweaks or changes that are regress instead of progress.
Second, what do you suppose the lifetime of digital camera actually is? My Olympus D-550 is still taking pictures after nearly 10 years, but what if I sunk a couple of kilobucks into a high-end system . . . would I be able to get it fixed five years down the road or ten years out?
My 40-year-old Pentaxes are still repairable and usable, although I wouild hate to go back to film.
What do you think? Are our digital cameras basically disposable items?
OK, busted. Well and totally BUSTED!Ray, I'm not picking on you.....this could easily apply to anyone here. I just happen to remember this post of yours vividly Outta GAS... - Micro Four Thirds User Forum because I was green with envy. IMAGINE how great it must feel to be wanting of nothing....totally satisfied with one's gear.
