DoP's, studio photographers, and film hippies use them.

Do you use an incident meter? Why or why not?

Alternatives to X100V

What are some decent alternatives to this camera that are not Ricoh (I don't give a fuck about street photography). I just love the form factor - it helps me pick it up a lot more and use it. Something from Canon/Sony maybe? Similar form factor and focal length are important. I am fined with fixed lens systems. Don't really care much for fuji film sims to be honest. I saw the Sony RX1R II but I don't see this available anywhere and it seems extremely expensive.

I hate the camera industry so much its unreal. Corporations have literally wasted two decades selling utter garbage. There is absolutely no reason for japan to not have had 100% of modern mirroless tech features in all of its high end cameras by the early 2000s. There has literally been zero progression in photo tech the past twenty years besides adding features that could have been in cameras twenty years ago. Sure there have been improvements in sensor and processing tech. Actual features and options that make taking photos in a sane and logical process in camera have not appeared until very recently in the history of digital cameras. These features didn't appear because of some shift in technology. They appeared because japan finally got off its ass and got around to putting them in cameras. Shameful.

Why have disposable film cameras gone extinct?

The world was better and felt more significant when you captured the moment on even cheap rolls of film.

SOUL was kept intact in the image. Better dynamic range than digital, beautiful imperfections. The limited stock made taking photos a novelty and forced you to treat each photo with reverence and consideration. Digital makes things too easy, and it looks like DOGSHIT.

Is it ethical?

Just bought a used camera from a shady character off craigslist, pretty sure it's stolen given how cheap he let it go for, but it's film and no real way of finding it's previous owner, am I naughty for just rolling with the great deal or what?
