But what fun is a hobby where all the work is done for you? Isn't that kind of like buying ship in a bottle models and hiring a high school kid to assemble the ships in the bottle so you can put it on the mantle.
If you get pleasure from that, the answer I guess is yes. There are people who buy kit-cars and get the manufacturer to assemble them. Which makes them just "cars" I suppose. But what the hell, different strokes...
I have no problem with anything being added to a camera's capabilities as technology advances. GPS is, to me, a fairly obvious enhancement. It'll be useful to someone, sometime. The visual level feature on my 7D is, for example, quite frankly, indispensable and has affected my technique for the better. Things like that are evolutionary and I get the point.
What I have a problem with is the apparent (on here) constant need to have the latest spec for its own sake. A year ago, my 5D2 was (to most) the state of the art jean-creamer that took amazing images and everyone should pawn their granny and kids to get one. Today, if you believe what you read here, my 5D2 only takes images of Keystone quality and lacks features that are as essential as cup-holders in cars and 4g compatibility.
Guys. Go out and take some photos with your camera and blow us all away with your work. Whether it's from a Box Brownie or a 6D/D600/D800 or any point in between.
My late night rant is at an end.
