“Round and Round We Go In The Circle Game”

  1. Hola Omar,

    I think a red shutter button should be a standard on all cameras. Some of these DSLRs have got so many buttons/knobs/switches that the shutter button gets lost. Then there are the multiple function controls that are dependent on which shooting mode one is using.

    Every time I put my Canon away, I set it for auto focus and auto mode. At least if I need to get a photo quickly, I don’t have to reconfigure and lose the shot. After the first few shots, then I have time to refine what the setting should be. Then again, I AM the laziest guy on the planet. Simplify, simplify.

    1. Hello Jim and Nena:

      I bought the red cap because I thought it would look cute on the camera. And in fact it does. I agree with about simplicity. DSLR camera are far too complex and difficult to use. So much that they intimidate many novice users.

      I’m like you. I like to shoot pictures, not becoming a camera technician. My preferred mode is Program Mode. It allows me to make very simple adjustments without having to go to Berkely to get a rocket science course.

      As you correctly stated, “Simplicity” is the name of the game.” Make it simple and people will come.

      Take Care,
