I don't agree, Jack.  It is a fair question to ask why our cameras have to be so complex.  Can't technology be employed to make them simpler?  Do our cameras have to be computers with lenses on them?  Do they have to be packed with features few of us will ever use?  It is not simply nostalgia at work here, and it is certainly not snobbery, at least for me.  I'm not a computer geek but I love taking photos, thinking about composition and light and experiencing the moment.  I use a small fraction of the tech that's available in my 5D and do wonder if I wouldn't enjoy myself more without it.    It is fair to consider the question of whether or not this spectacular technology is not for its own sake, rather than for the sake of photography or even art.

Notwithstanding these concerns, I am grateful for these incredibly competent and innovative instruments and for the scientists and engineers who make them possible -- at such high levels of reliability yet for such low cost.

Yours, Malik
