Your camera's a tool, not a jewel.

How is that different from your car, or ---

Or your house or anything else?

There are plenty of people who buy a new car and just drive the wheels off it, service it only when something breaks, never even washing it - they get five years out of it and buy a new one.  That has some merit - you don't spend any time worrying about your car - it's just a tool.

Then there are those who primp over their cars and keep them like new.  I suspect most of us are somewhere in the middle - as we might be with cameras.

But shoot in Program mode just because I can get an image - hmmmmm.  No thanks, all those buttons and dials do have a purpose.  I like some of them.
