I own an e-m5 as well but i find that techmology is making us think less as you proved with your comment on the live bulb mode, all skills will become irrelevent. what if everyone were given robot feet to play soccer? Would be just like everyone else because the machine does the thinking for you.

fyi, the goal of photography isn't to get smarter. It's to take pretty pictures. Seriously what a silly thread. There is an option to turn off the LCD on every camera. And if you're so obsessed with film, shoot film. Simple. Seems like you just started this thread to argue.

The goal of photography is to get beautiful pictures, and to get to that goal you NEED to be intelligent and have a good eye.

And an on-camera display and instant, in the field feedback is an important tool in developing a good eye.

Also guess what? This could be VERY beneficial for photography schools who now teach all students by making them use film cameras & this can save the students quite a bit of cash.

And guess what? There aren't that MANY photography schools who do anything of the sort any more. Most schools these days are treating film as an "alternative process", with all your 101 style courses being shot digitally.

Furthermore I did not start this thread to argue

That is not how it appears.

so don't you even claim you know why it was started. This is not an attempt at a Canon vs Nikon or Panasonic vs Olympus kind of thread so simply GTFO if you do NOT like it.

Your ALL CAPS SHOUTING is bad enough. Now you feel a need to swear. Why? Because no one else agrees with you?

You argue from a POV of intense emotionalism, and you use wild hyperbole to make your point. What is all this stuff about every photographer you know having a Holga? If every photographer was using one, even as an occasional adjunct to digital work, Holga would be selling hundreds of millions of cameras, instead of hundreds of thousands, and Kodak would still be solvent. Same thing with your estimation of how many people want your camera. You multiply everything you like by 1000, and simply delete everything you don't like.

Total reality disconnect.
