I am just happy we now have digital cameras. I started with film as many of us did and even when I was in the air force with access to 200 foot cans of really good film and a complete photo shop, taking photos was not as easy as it is now. The one thing I really appreciate about those days was the time I had to take prior to pushing the shutter. I took the time to compose and really look at the shot I was going take. No way to chimp then.

Sure there was. It was called a Polaroid back for a view camera.
Good point, never had one of those! I did and still have a Graflex 4x5, but no Polaroid back.

The amount of time it takes to take a shot is no different than it ever was..........if you want it to be.
"The one thing I really appreciate....", is no dust on the film. I still do some film for a funsy from time to time. The biggest difference is, there is no dust with digital.
