Classic Cameras and Modern Sensibilities

I grew up using cameras off and on. I still have my fathers Minolta SR-T 101 and Maxxum 3000i. I wish I had digital growing up. The instant feedback would have encouraged me more. There are other people who’ve grown up with digital with a different attitude. In this Months Shutterbug magazine is S.”Frtiz” Takeda’s article on the 30th Tokyo Used Camera Show. (no link available) Takeda found the younger generation had an appreciation for the analog/manual cameras. In the sidebar column Takeda presented the viewpoint of younger women who have grown up immersed in the digital world. Unlike me, one woman didn’t like the instant feedback. It spoiled a sense of expectation! Would the camera manufacturers consider making a throwback camera to cater to this group?
