Quote: I've got a Nikon FM2 and wondered why there wasn't a camera like this on the market that was digital.

Because it's completely pointless. It is no more expensive to produce a camera with Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Programme modes, than to produce one with Manual only.

In the same way practically every stills digital camera now has a video mode, because it costs about tuppence to add it.

No its not Smile

Why do you think I`m a big fan of the x10, x100 and the Fuji X range in general.

Oh, so they are all purely manual.......... no auto modes at all? Don't be daft, Paul! Grin

What is silly about it? All the cameras you mention have auto modes and video as well. Not at all what the OP is talking about.

I would love a camera like that too... I like my camera but I find scrolling through menus and switching the video thing on by accident a pain in the you know what. I don't use even half of the functions, and I don't want them. I loved the 5Dmk1... no video, slow enough for me to keep up with it, and no daft "modes" Wink

Go and do some homework CB, the x100 and newer fuji x series CSC work in exactly the same way as a film camera, there`s a real aperture ring including an A setting and there`s a real shutter speed dial including an A setting, setting both A mode S` together gives you a program mode, setting either of the other A modes gives you either AP or shutter priority, plus there is full manual control as well.

Go and look at the link I posted, all of the modes are clearly marked on the top plate.

To the OP..... Avoid all the rest, stick with Leica!

M digitals have aperture priority and manual. Shutter speed dial, aperture ring on the lens and manual focus. No arguments, no faff, just shoot the same way as you do with the FM2. I do.

I went and did my homework and found, hey.................. my shirt-pocket digi-compact uses rings rather than buttons to set aperture and shutter speed, when in manual mode! Grin

My S95 has an aperture ring if that is your desire. I often use it in manual mode, aperture on the ring round the lens, shutter speed on the dial at the rear of the camera.

Me too with my S100. It works remarkably well. Smile
