A Different Digital Divide
10

The digits on my hands crave to be comfortably holding a camera body while pushing and turning mechanical controls. It's what I learned to accept 50 years ago and then came to find highly pleasurable.

Conversely, my pinkies will never accept simply holding the edges of a slippery little slab while attempting to tap a certain spot on its face and only that spot. The rest of me will never accept holding a camera at arm's length, forgoing the stability of a traditional smack-your-face-with-it approach.

This is an unbridgeable generation gap and it prevents me from enjoying the truly incredible advantages of computational HDR.

So I pop flashes at people and things.
