Overheard conversation

Post by Walter Brooks »

Whilst waiting to collect my 'new' 35-105mm FD lens and browsing at the aesthetic works of photographic engineering at Real Camera yesterday ... I overheard Jem explain the merits of the OM30 and 50mm lens to a young woman and her friend. After about 10 minutes of the informative introduction and on the verge of a purchase, the young woman's friend, in pointing to the back of the camera where the end of the film box goes, asked if that was where you saw the image. Very kindly Jem (and with a bit of smile) said that it would be the first one he'd ever seen :roll:

Maybe there's an idea ... a film camera with a digital screen to view the image ... :lol:

I was browsing the forum and came across this short conversation from 2014.

Someone at Fujifilm must have been reading this because they have done it the other way round and recreated the end of the film box on the back of the X pro 3 :-d

If you wait long enough everything comes back round again.
