Re: One of the reasons I am still shooting film

Nikon & Canon figured out a long time ago that when hey build BIGGER cameras people go WOW, HEY YOU MUST BE A PRO, SHEESH LOOK AT THAT THING, WHOA THAT THING IS HUGE, etc.etc.etc. when you walk into a shoot.

They could make them smaller, after all look at the postage stamp size ipod compared to the walkman of decades ago.

It's all about the squeal not the pig.
