    ....but, of course, digital camera modes are only ill-advised in relation to individual users. I am sure there are some who actually use the Movie Mode.

    My wife shoots exhibition-quality photographs with a Nikon Coolpix compact camera that has a mode called "auto scene" of something like that. It apparently analyses the scene and chooses from umpteen specific "scene modes" the one best suited to the shot that she is about to take. It has the advantage that she simply never has to press any button on her camera other than the shutter release. And her Jpegs print up to A3+ to provide prints that get selected for RPS exhibitions.

    Sometimes I think that we "knowledgeable" guys just make things difficult for ourselves 99% of the time. It is really only the other 1% where our superior knowledge and technique reflects in the final print.

    They can always dye their hair blonde in an attempt to improve themselves. Thinks ... are their any cameras out their with a blonde mode?

    Probably shouldn't have googled "camera blonde mode".

    Wasn't there a game built in to the Pentax K-r that only worked when paired to another K-r?

    I'd be more interested to know if there are cameras out there with a blonde model ... :p

    But perhaps not, bearing in mind what blonde moggles are like these days. :rolleyes:

    I fear my post may have gone over your head.

    Where's the one with the "hot cup of tea" mode surely someone has made one some where in the world.
