Al­though she now uses a D810, Britta is stick­ing to her film­based in­stincts of shoot­ing man­u­ally and not wast­ing frames. But there is one fea­ture she is be­gin­ning to rely on…

You al­ways shot man­u­ally with the F4, even when fo­cus­ing. Has the D810 changed your old habits?

Yes, I’m def­i­nitely shoot­ing more frames, but I’m still keep­ing to my phi­los­o­phy of only a few frames will do, be­cause ei­ther I have found some­thing that works as an im­age or it’s a waste of time. I still like to think that I can press the shut­ter at that de­ci­sive mo­ment. Time will tell. I’m still us­ing the cam­era on man­ual set­tings only, but ev­ery so of­ten I do use aut­o­fo­cus!

Re­ally? That’s a change

Oh yes! I still use man­ual fo­cus quite a lot with the new cam­era, but not al­ways. But ex­po­sure­wise, it’s al­ways man­ual, not even shut­ter-pri­or­ity.
