A dream camera collection
Why do I collect film cameras? Because I want to see what film photography gives us. I'm not against digital imaging - I love my digital SLR. But, the satisfaction I feel when I record a good image with it does not compare with that I feel when I find a good photograph on a roll of film. With a digital imagining, the image is seen before it is recorded -- there is no surprise. Moreover, being able to preserve an image with a manual camera requires as much skill and vision as that required for any work of art. Photography did not replace painting and drawing. Digital imagining should not replace photography. What I would love would be "electric film" -- cartridges that could be placed in manual film cameras that would record the image as if there were film in the camera.
