After all these years of expounding the virtues of film as superior to digital images, I finally get it. Digital images are fantastic to work with, require little effort to manage, and have such a wealth of capabilities for manipulation, storage, communication, and instant gratification, that I cannot believe I left my old hobby in the lurch.
So I saw this great new camera Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (yep I remember the Canon A1 – the first electronified SLR way back when…. [Celia – happy birthday!] ) and bit the bullet so to speak. So what if the lens isn’t rated as well as my Leica R3 lenses, so what if the whole darn package is on rebate, so what if the 8 megapixels is half what will be available in a few years if I wait.
Man, its great. No I didn’t buy the pro camera version. I’m a hobbyist you know. And boy am I going to hobby on this. Welcome back hobby.
