It's funny you say that because I was nagged by my daughters into getting an iPhone and I struggle taking pictures with it, like you I'm used to a viewfinder. The first photo's I took with it were blurred because I moved the phone when hitting the button.

Phones take pictures??? :smt017

Jeepers, next I'll find out phones connect to the internet. :shock:

I may be slightly out of touch with the modern world... :smt102


Bye the bye...the reason for that photo was as an illustration of proper cartridge hygiene.
I had seen some photos on another forum where the cartridges were filthy...dirty bums and fuzzy stylus. :o

A few years ago we went to see The Vulcan up in Doncaster and another visitor asked me to take a photo with her iPhone.

As soon as I looked at the screen it snapped off 6 shots. :roll:

Optical Viewfinder, proper shutter release and I am fine :smt023
