it photo: Welcome to the beginning of the end of photography. Cameras will merge with videocameras and phones and PC's. Buying a Nikon you will first need to install Windows (with a code of course), then login with your username (or if you let your wife use it she will login with her own password and have her own personalized menus) . Then you will install your lenses, then the filters and finally the... camera strap (because it will also have something proprietary built-in). Built-in GPS and WiFi will transmit photos to the cloud. This is not photography, this is COMPUTING!

Ok then, passwords in cameras! And also tracking devices in your shoes because they may be stolen as well. Or better have passwords for the shoes, no? This is getting ridicoulous.

This is getting interesting... I use digital cameras since 1999 (Sony DSC-S70 3.3m), digital videocameras (Sony HDR-SR1E, the first HD Sony camera with HDD) and a number of DSLRs and compacts I can't even remember). I also have 3 PCs & notebooks for digital image processing. In the past (yes, I admit that...) was shooting film (mainly B&W). So, I consider myself as photo-enthusiast as well as a technology literate person. However, I do not wish to see ourselves someday entering a password to being allowed to shoot a damn photo!
BTW, if I liked chemistry I would be still shooting film... If I liked computing I would use an iPad camera, so I can have the pleasure of tapping passwords and see in large screens what I'm shooting. Instead, I love my (Nikon) DSLR, WITHOUT passwords or whatever else the future is going to impose to us. Oops, I need to log-off now.
