After getting my D70 about 3 weeks ago, I've made a few MAJOR boo boos. Heh. So, what are the things that YOU guys think are representative of a Manual Film using going Digital? (I still love Film though!)

1) When you can't even remember what mode you are in, Aperture priority, Shutter Priority, Manual, damn
confusing!!!

2) When you camped out at the Esplanade for 4 hours. Only to shoot the HK Team Fireworks at F25!

3) When you camped out at the Esplanade for 3 hours. Only to have your battery go flat halfway in the SG Team Fireworks!

Sigh.
I'll really have to work on my D70....

did you miss the metal body feeling? the retro shapes?

After using manual film for some time, now using AF, i still get shocked by auto film advance and continuos shooting, cos i usually let my finger go down and hold there for slightly more than half a second.

You wait until you finish your card before changing ISO

You keep fiddling with all the settings because you don't know what Auto does

You add grain to your photos in your digital darkroom

You feel much farther away from everything cos of the tiny viewfinder

i miss the aperture ring :cry:

yes i fumble for all the controls, auto ??? what's that

1 very habbit i never got away from using manual cameras is the manual mode.

until now, i only use the M mode most of the time, i never quite like the other modes, shutter or aperture or even program. :rolleyes:
