I don't do anything high end- I leave that up to my father who has taken this on as a post retirement hobby. The thing I have enjoyed the most from all the recent advances and the change to digital is the ability to just take a bunch of pictures and not worry about the blurry or bad shots that result from taking pictures of dogs/kids/ playing around with setting. The immediacy of the download and avoiding the cost of processing has been a beautiful thing.
I couldn't help but think of this old skit when I read the title.
