It is Asha - but part of the reason I enjoy film cameras is the simplicity they can offer - the input comes from the user not a microprocessor. The end result is something I have created - not something that has been worked out to some degree by a computer and a computer program. If it is crap it is down to me but I have created it. The leica is much newer than the cameras I suggested but is not full of automation in use (granted a digital image is created by a computer) The results heavily depend on the user input (focus,exposure etc)I'm confused now!
Is the Leica M10 D not later than the F3 (F4-F6) or am I missing something?
Maybe it goes back to what I loved as a child - I loved building Airfix kits, Mechano, Lego etc but lets face it the end results weren't that good - I could have bought a ready built Harrier jump jet model but it wouldn't have given the same satisfaction of building an Airfix Superscale all by myself.
Likewise the radio controlled aircraft I used to fly - I had created this model and it feels very similar to the satisfaction of creating a photograph - often the making of it was more fun than the result.
So, it is not just the recording media for me it is the creation/making of the photograph.
