    All true. I would also add that I doubt that all phones are
    susceptible to this kind of interference.

    but not camera firmware.
    sure, but that has nothing to do with a nikon f6 or any camera for that

    The F6 is not an Edsel, or Oldsmobile which are not in production, and
    might be termed "dead".

    ....and even an Edsel, or an Oldsmobile "dead" as they are, have some
    value as vehicles, just as the F6, still in production, functions as a
    state of the art film camera to capture light to produce photographs.

    nospam's problem is that he wants to call the film camera market
    "dead" when it hasn't yet succumbed. He'd be on firmer ground to call
    it "moribund", but subtle distinctions are not his strong suit.

    Proof. And I won't get that from you, and your word is worth exactly
    nothing. So move along, there is nothing for you here.

    " ... there is no need to specifically call out digital slr, since
    film slrs are not made anymore."

    Please lets not keep arguing over this.

    hasn't succumbed?? are you blind???

    kodak is bankrupt, film sales and film camera sales a tiny fraction of
    what they once were, camera stores have shut down in droves because the
    bulk of their income was photofinishing and without film sales, there
    is no processing.
    word games.

    something does not have to be zero to be considered dead.

    take batteries, for instance. a dead battery in a camera can still
    power a flashlight. a dead battery in a car measures 11.7v and anything
    under 12v is probably not enough to start the car, which to the owner
    means the battery is dead. it won't help if tony's tow shows up and
    says 'no it's not dead, it's 11.9 volts'.

    ok so there's two, neither of which sell in any appreciable quantities.
    there used to be hundreds of film cameras available at any given time.
    what exists now is lost in the noise.

    it doesn't change anything and my point still stands. there is no need
    to specifically say digital slr anymore. all slrs sold are now digital,
    except for two that don't sell very many and it's almost guaranteed
    that you won't ever see anyone using one, and if you do, they'll have a
    normal slr (i.e., digital) with them.

    all you're doing is nitpicking.

    Why do you keep battering away at this? You made an absolute statement
    which is absolutely wrong in absolute terms. Why could you not
    acknowledge your absolute statement was not absolutely correct?
    And you are not?

    because it doesn't change the point i was making, which is that now
    everything is digital unless otherwise indicated. it's the default.

    saying 'slr' or 'camera' these days means digital. 15 years ago it
    meant film. during the transition it was important to distinguish
    between the two but now that the transition from film to digital is
    over, there is no longer any need to specifically call out digital.
    it's all digital, with rare exception.

    as usual, all you're doing is fixating on specific words, entirely
    missing the message.

    the fact that there's still a film camera or two available as new
    doesn't make film any less dead. if someone is stupid enough to want to
    buy a new film camera, they have to work at finding one. they can't
    just go to the local camera store and get it. everything is now digital
    and anything film is a special order, with a potentially long wait and
    at a price premium and likely with a lot of questions from the store's
    staff as to why in the world would anyone want to buy a film camera
    when there are far better and cheaper digital options.

    The above colon (after "car") seems to be documented evidence that
    "nospam" finally used his "shift" key.

    Well it certainly couldn't be described as a global shift.
