This is a rant more than anything else , I prefer using film ( this is not a film v digital rant) I have a Canon 10d DSLR which occasionally makes it out of the cupboard when I am feeling the love then gets chucked in once it destroys a load of my photos. Today being a nice day me and Mrs Badger decided to have a day out at Coughton Court and I decided to go Digital (I'm always at war with myself about the cost of using film) So I took the DSLR as its been good lately and a compact Olympus digital, thank god I took the Olympus. Every single photo was over exposed by the DSLR. I must say I use manual film lense on it and use it in manual mode, in mid to low light it works well but in bright light it always over exposes although the metering is showing it to be right anyway it's finaly gone in the bin. I don't really like the Olympus as it is pretty much all auto but on this occasion it saved the day. Both are about the same age but the Olympus has some damage to it's body from when I had an off whilst motorcycle green lanning. hence my other post about Older compacts with manual modes. Canon best shot out of 4 the rest were a near white out Olympus Compact one shot and it's fine Canon again the best of a number of shots Olympus one of two shots both the same Rant over !
