Did you ever miss a shot because you forgot to cock shutter?

Rad

I've missed shots because I've swapped lenses while someone asked me a question during event setup, forgot that I hadn't yet taken the cap off the new lens (but remembered going through metering, white balance, and initial test shots) then raised the camera to frame something and quickly discovered my error...

New tools mean new and different ways. Learning all the tools you have at your disposal and then selecting the one you want for a job is pushing your creativity. Deliberately ignoring other tools and processes completely isn't creative, it is being willfully ignorant of options and potential in my view.

Roger,

When I was learning, again back in the early 70's, I could only shoot with what I could afford. What that meant for me, was an Argus A3.

Nope! Shutter was always cocked immediately after a short was taken.

Kinda like driving stick. You quickly learn to step on the clutch and the brake at the same time.

Didn’t Canon come out with a SLR (mid 90s) that allowed you to switch rolls of film? It would somehow remember how far to advance the film roll when you put the original back in.. so you could switch between ISO speeds or color and B&W..

Talking about the old school cameras, I've preserve a decade old camera of my family. After reading this post, I'm thinking of going out and shot photos using the old camera. I'm just concern if there are still businesses that print photos from film.
