Auto winders do turn some photographers into button pushers, but I suspect that's what those photographers were prior to autowinders - or what we used to call motor drives. For other photographers they are both a convenience and a device that can enable the photographer to produce a sequence he or she could otherwise never produce. - -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Ben Sent: Friday, May 08, 1998 1:05 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [Leica] "State of the Art" >The autoeverything, regardless of what it is (camera, >car...) takes the operator out of the equation, and in our case, the >photographer is simply a button pusher. >This is one of the reasons that I believe, the Leica camera, is indeed a state of >the art photographic apparatus. Good lenses and good mechanics... other than R8 >winders :) It's a good thing Leica can't figure out how to build an auto-winder, because auto cameras turn the photographer into simply a button pusher.
