    without power steering how many would own cars?

    without lifts how many would stay in flats

    without calculators, how many would learn trig

    without planes, how many would travel ?

    I use view cameras.

    I use leica R & M. No auto-anything.

    I also have several cameras with autoeverything. But I disable these features.

    Like that I shouldn't be in photography liao. My FM2 got no AF and AE And I use it more than my AF camera........

    If no power steering, can still drive. But if cannot drive, what's the point of power steering...

    I use my cereal box pinhole camera. Sometimes I use my shoebox with a lens salvaged from my magnifying glass as my backup camera too. Totally zero auto.

    I still drive a car with no power steering & manual gear... its more fun than the normal power-steering auto cars.

    I have lift on every level but i climb the stairs occassionally...

    I do mental sums when a calculator is infront of me...

    Without planes, i take bus... hahaa... i dun travel that much u know...

    You have good and sharp eyes, fast eye-hand reaction
    I always wonder last time how do photographers manual focus on action shots or catwalk etc

    I rely on AF & AE most of the time , only if camera cannot focus or focus/exposure error, then manual focus/expose.
