As long as you keep the limitations in mind, 6mp is plenty most of the time. I like the small RAW files and the JPGs have their own unique texture and organic colors. I rarely look at the LCD, love...

The perfect outing for this type of camera. Just one roll of film for 10 days? That must have required a bit of restraint.

My Lomo doesn't have a flash, so it's a daytime thing.

As for 1/2 frame, I would suggest one of the several versions of Olympus Pen viewfinder cameras. They're small and dependable, but you may...

The 4 lens Lomo camera is crude but fun. I've got one! However, for quality results plus film & processing economy, I think 1/2 frame 35 is the way to go.

I generally use my half-frames to shoot color slide film because 74 frames on a roll almost compensates for the high cost of film and processing. However, I never get the frames mounted as slides ......

In my opinion, one of the nicest aspects of the Pen S and similar models is the way the focussing ring is so well placed for the fingertips, with click stops at 2m and 5m. Not to mention the quiet...

For me, the NP80 type lithium batteries are the most frustrating aspect of using the R-D1. In temperate conditions they typically last two or three hours, in which time I might make 30-60 exposures...

Aside from the CCD vs CMOS differences, the R-D1 was meant to be a limited-production showpiece for Seiko-Epson technological prowess circa 2004.

Consequently, I would assume that the designers took...

The R-D1 is still awesome, plus the winding lever actually cocks the shutter AND serves as a thumb rest. For most purposes 6mp is plenty, but I wish the batteries lasted longer.

With digital technology especially, any assertion that an older device might be good enough or perhaps even superior is cause for either laughter or sympathy.
