The miracle of digital

I mentioned in a previous post how autofocus changed things for me.  I would be remiss if I did not say digital was equally transformative.  I can remember trying to record my settings so that when I looked at the finished print I could understand how fstop and shutter speed related to what I was getting.  That was a nightmare – I could never remember to record my settings in a consistent way.  Now I get the metadata with the picture and can easily run through all the variations of fstop, shutter speed and ISO and she how various combinations work.  Also since I am not paying for film and printing this does not strain the pocketbook.  This has also allowed me to change my ISO settings so I can take a variety of subject at the same time rather than having to change film if I was moving my birds in flight to flowers.
