@GeoffR Funny you make a parallel using the multi tool I used to collect those - I was (a very) serious collector my username was and probably still is known in the worldwide multi tool scene - the expense dwarfed photography. I was never interested in the tools themselves (they are all just gimmicks) rather just the evolution and the very many different concepts bygone companies tried to create to avoid fringing patents on the major heavyweight names - sadly most have gone or licensed their brand names to eastern manufacturers. Hence the utter tripe that is churned out these days. But all this misty eyed reverence, I can’t help but wonder where you draw the line. How far do you take control until the image is finally yours and 100% of your own doing. If we want to be purists then technology should have no part be it phones, lightroom. auto iso, AP, TV, Program etc etc We have to strip it all back to the very core and then create with that if we want true ownership of the image anything less is contradictory. And that’s the real issue - we can’t stop progress....so we may as well embrace it.
