Re: Does technique change with advances in cameras?

I remember when the first auto exposure cameras came out- heck, no I remember when the first TTL metering cameras came out... Anyway, auto exposure, auto focusing, I think for many of us older folk nothing much changed fundamentally because film speed was always the real limiting factor.

So recent developments in low light performance have changed the game completely.  The freedom to set aperture and shutter speed with little or no consideration of the light conditions is a revolution.  I was reading an interview with a quite well known landscape photographer recently who seems to throw the rule book on landscapes out the window, all because of the stellar performance of modern cameras in low light.

I'm still not sure I agree with the heavy emphasis these days on low light performance, but I do understand it.
