Sometime "retro" just means "sorted out"
In reply to John Rausch, Mar 7, 2014

Some of those "retro" ways of doing things were really the evolved, mature approach to the available technology of the time.

The problem with the newer technology and all the possibilities they present is that the approach to controlling/harnessing just isn't as mature yet. For example, kitchen-sink features end up in your face, obscuring the critical controls.

At some point the more modern possibilities will also be sorted out. Some will become supreme, others will just shake out, and there will be new classics to take their place.

In the interim, I just want very little interruption between me and the subject and the basic settings.
