Light and composition are the true essence of photography.

You are right, Doug. I actually agree with everything you just said, and think I even have a couple pictures to back it up. No question today's digital equipment has erased many barriers, many sins, technology has made ordinary shooters into extraordinary ones. In the end, all you need now is the "eye." My point was when I am on the hunt, my first choice is to reach for the camera with a viewfinder, not a screen, and controls I am in control of. That's what defines the word camera.

That's like me saying:
Quote:
My first choice is to reach for the car with a manual transmission and knobs for the minor controls, not an automatic and not a touchscreen, and systems I am in control of - no ABS, traction control, or stability program. That's what defines the word car.
The first sentence is an expression of a valid personal preference. No offense, but the second sentence is nonsensical and insulting to those with other preferences without a qualifier of some sort. In my example it would need to be something like "sports car"; in the case of the camera it might be "serious camera".

Few people actually want to live with a sports car... or a "serious" camera.

Ah, don't feel insulted. One man's camera is another's telephone.

As a retired photographer, I just can't take it up as a hobby.
For 42 years I took pictures for a purpose - for publication. I can't bring myself to shoot just for the heck of it.

I got totally addicted in high school -116 folding camera with 4 f/stops, first enlarger in a dark corner under the cellar steps, yearbook photographer, Speed Graphic, etc etc., but when the time came to plan a career I balked and chose a different path ---yet, always kept that cherished dream of one day working for National Geographic. Ah well.

When I was 18 I shipped off some pix to a columnist at Camera 35 magazine. He typed a two page reply that, in part, pointed out that 20 per cent of photographers make 80 per cent of the money and 80 per cent of photographers make 20 per cent of the money. He advised me to find another profession, and he returned my photos.
My response was to pursue a career in news photography that won me some awards and lasted 45 years.
I remember that when I'm asked for advice by aspiring photographers. And, it's even harder to succeed now when every fire, riot and murder is covered by a dozen cell phones submitting their photos for free.
So, I tell them the facts, and tell them to go for it if they really want it.

I've played with my Leica M4, loaded with Tri-X.
Shot a friend's son's wedding ( I wasn't the official photog - Catchlight was ), and it was great fun. One fixed lens ( 35mm ), a light meter and a few rolls of film.
So hang on to the OM1 ( besides, its' only worth about $30 in trade ).
