MANUAL TO AUTO
Britt a finally sw itch ed over to us ing a digital camera th is year
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.
