We've been jabbering about what we want to see in a digital camera. I'd like
one that works more like a film camera.
My D-620L tends to underexpose (ie, I don't like the default exposure). To
increase the exposure, I have to navigate the menu, because Olympus was too
cheap to put an exposure-compensation dial on the camera. When you consider
that "pro" digicams aren't any smaller than 35mm cameras, there's no excuse
for not duplicating the "important" film-camera controls.
My feeling too. I am not averse to a digital system if it produces
better images, but there is no way I am going for an autofocus,
three button menu driven computer for my main camera, film or
digital. I am sure that the next step is to be able to plug the
camera into a lap top to set the controls - so far from what a
photographer needs as to be a parody.
