I’ve been doing more reading than writing lately. Just like the good old days.

On the way home from reading I almost managed some excellent timing to photograph a passing train. As it was, almost didn’t cut it and those darn (old) digital cameras with their slow start up times left me with nothing.

Next time.

    that’s why you need to splurge and get one of those cute little cameras like mine. Well, that’s the new version of mine that actually shutter speed settings. But still, instant on.

    Actually, mine does long shutters too (up to 15 seconds) but it’s well-hidden. So with that in mind mine will be on closeout and therefore a better deal.

    Or you could be cool and shoot film… But I shouldn’t talk.

    Film is great, don’t get me wrong. When I took photo back in school and shot black and white and hand developed everything I loved it. Problem is, I don’t have a darkroom or the desire to spend money on buying more and more film and developing, especially since the pictures I take now are pretty much exclusively for digital use / archiving.

    The digital camera is arguably one of the best things to happen to the casual photographer because there’s basically the one-time cost of entry (camera + large memory card) and then you’re pretty much set to go until you want a better camera.

    yep i agree. now that i have been pseudo-shooting digital (using my digital video camera) i don’t think i could ever completely move back to film. especially when it costs 15 bucks to get a roll of film processed and printed. shit, thats 1/5 of the price of a decent little memory card.
