These retro cameras are no less sophisticated than their 'conventional' counterparts for the most part, yet they ignore the latest interfaces that have made modern cameras more convenient to use, preferring to fit multiple and confusing, sometimes unergonomic physical dials instead of, or in some combination with software adjustments.

Now that's what I call technological snobbery.
But if it's new it must be better, huh?

I think he's saying the dials on the retro cameras are a design asthestetic, but are functionally outdated, which is kinda true.

Not outdated in any way!  whst bothers me about it tho is that it's all just fashion accessories. You can bypass them all with the internal menu. So it's not a retro camera. It's a retro looking camera. And the lasylt thing I need in my camera is fashion.
