Understanding what’s going on ‘under the hood’ of a camera really will help you understand what all the buttons and options do. And demystify the whole thing and put YOU in control.
A camera should be a) intuitive to use, b) nice to hold, c) not too complicated.
It may look nice, but how easy is it to use ?
A camera is a essentially a black box with a tiny hole to let light in. It's possible to make a camera out of a cardboard box ; cameras as we know them are just a more sophisticated version of a simple concept.
