The first step in understanding why a film camera is needed is understanding what photography is, which is a lot like going out to McDonald’s. If we assume that all things are made up of the same sort of material, such as wood, plastic, or metal, then this immediately begs the question of what “good” looks like.
Is “good” that the piece makes my job as a photographer easier? Does it look good even with no light?! Do you want it to look good even with the highest aperture? Can you get it to be stable after years of use? Should a lens be made in the least expensive way possible? Do you want that lens to be easy to use? How well does the lens focus? Does it have an effective image stabilisation system, so you can shoot fast for long periods without fumbling? Is the lens fast enough to avoid shutter lag?
What does good look like?
So when you ask this question, let’s say that you don’t care about quality or what looks good on a model. What you do care about is the feeling you get from the photograph. Do you want the final result to be a product or a feeling? What does it feel like?
If photography is the visual experience of seeing what someone else thinks is beautiful, then you want the camera to do this for you.
Why would any industry want to get around this problem? Because when a company is trying to sell a product they’re really trying to sell a “look”, of course, and so when you buy something, they assume that there’s a camera you need. That camera will automatically give you the look you want – in this case, “well-made glass” – and this is where photography really shines.
That “look” we wanted was a glass that was “perfect”, so the photographer got up and produced “perfect” glass – and if they didn’t, they probably would have been out of business (there are a lot of cameras and lenses with good glass, and this type of glass could potentially change many things).
That’s what makes photography so great.
Why don’t more products focus on creating “the look” we want – a camera? Well, that’s a good question, but in a perfect world I’d definitely say there should be one!
But what if there wasn’t? Wouldn’t photography be just a hobbyist’s dream? We would like cameras to make a good
