I finally got it

Marty and everybody else

What happened to pure joy of photography? There are countless people, myself included, who simply enjoy photography, including carrying cameras, buying them, postprocessing etc.

Smartphones are smartphones, you can take decent pictures with them , I agree, but that is a different thing entirely.

And by the way, anything without an optical viewfinder is not a camera for me.

When I have a camera in my hands, it feels entirely different than snapping with my phone, which I sometimes do as well for different reasons. Photographer is a big word, but I feel like one with camera, I don't with  a smartphone.

A friend of mine, a surgeon, when you ask him for advice, tells me and his friends to come and see him in his office. He says he feels completely differently with his doctor's outfit on, with a cap, he thinks differently. Nothing to do with money.

He is a surgeon in his office, he is a friend outside of it.

The numbers of those like me are limited, but I would think that sufficient to sustain a camera market for a good while.

For all it's worth, I just bought some film, chemicals and am about to start some film shooting . Can't wait. Film already in camera, two pictures down. I even ordered a new flash as the old one died, fried itself.
