On Cameras and Flies

Dean Allen, who just switched to a Nikon D60 SLR after years of using (very nice) Leica/Panasonic point-and-shoots:

Christ on a bike what a difference. I feel like someone handed a slice of hot toast spread with cultured butter after a lifetime breakfasting on Skittles and government cheese.

The least understood aspect of modern SLRs is that they do, in fact, make for the world’s very best “just push the shutter button and let the camera worry about the details” point-and-shoot cameras.
