That's totally true.
I have so many friends who have a ****ty little compact digital camera and take a few pictures of themselves or other people or of their feet and then all of a sudden start saying photography is their passion. One of my friends once said to me 'I don't get it! If I adjust the shutter to 1000, it comes out all dark!'.
I do have digital cameras, and I am seriously considering buying a DSLR by the summertime, but at the moment, I love using the Praktica MTL3 I found in my dad's storage vault from when he was a photographer. I just think you get so much more satisfaction when you get it right.
