Was thinking today about the digital v. film debate. I shoot both but have always thought of digital as an expanding arena of soon to be obsolete
cameras. After all why shouldn’t they be. Computer + Lens = digital camera. So the innards are always getting better. With Film cameras that doesn’t happen . There won’t be a better, ‘next year’ version of your film camera.
Today was the introduction of the Leica Q2 which is a super high tech point and shoot with a fixed lens camera. Looks lovely - it’s only $5000!!!
Today I saw a great deal on a black Leica Leicaflex SL film camera. Other than the fact that you have to do a little bit of a work around to get the right voltage battery the thing is quite easy to use. No upgrades, no sensor cleanings. And in a pinch you can pound nails or repel an assailant with this heavy object. $250
To each his own.
