It's like when Ansel Adams composed his images on his view camera. The image he saw on his field camera's view screen were not what his final image would ultimately look like. For one thing, they were in color, while his final images were in black-and-white. But he understood that what he saw on his view screen was a starting point . And his final interpretation of the image wouldn't happen until he got into the darkroom. Likewise, I think most photographers with any kind of post-processing experience understand that what we see and capture at the time we press the shutter button is merely a starting point.


You seem unaware of the concept of pre-visualization.

I think you are incorrect in believing that Adam's went into the darkroom without

a well conceived plan as to what needed to be done to render the negative into

the print he envisioned.

Post processing, as used today, is a far cry from what Adams had at his disposal --

I think he would have rejected any neg that needed as much work as what some people

routinely apply in PS.

As for the OVF vs EVF debate -- different strokes for different folks -- though

I am sorry to see the Sony a900 viewfinder go out of production, it's the best

I ever encountered and the one I prefer.
