There have been a few threads on this forum about the feel, connectivity and pleasure of using cameras with manual focus, or legacy glass, older chips, using film, retro cameras in general. One person describes it, as you cannot control whom you fall in love with. Very few of the discussions are centered on how these processes will make a better final image, it seems to be more about how one feels about capturing the image than the image itself. All of this makes me want to ask this question. Which is more important to you the feel and process of shooting or the results of the final images. Understanding we all like toys and the fact that the camera that feels good in your hands is the one you will want to use, but taking that part aside. The question is more on the line of do you like the hunt more or the kill better. I collect and drink wine, there are many I know who are more about the hunt for that special bottle and then there are those who enjoy the taste and pleasure of drinking the wine more. What part of the photo process is most appealing to you and why For me being a photographer is who I am in so many ways, I identify myself as a photographer, I see the world that way, sort of filtered through a lens; this is both good and bad. I have some form of camera with me all the time, may not use it but it is always there. At the same time, other than my original Nikon F, sitting in a case, I have no more emotional attachments to my shooting cameras, they last only as long they do what I want them to do and then when something newer and or better arrives they are replaced. I do not whish to go back and shoot the way I once did, I want to take advantage of what modern technology has brought to this image making process. I have even thought about how cool it will be, when something like the Google glasses will be able to zoom and shoot high resolution low light images, no cameras in my hands at all just look imagine and shoot.
