Answer
HI SAM
SORRY I MISSED THE SECOND PART OF THE QUESTION.
IT WOULD SEEM THAT ANY ONE CARRING A CAMERA IS A PHOTOGRAPHER THESE DAYS . ESPECIALY WITH CAMERA IN SIDE PHONES SNAP HAPPY .

I have worked in most aspects of still photography, using film and the wet process for 50 years. Employing all film formats 35mm to 8x10 sizes, I went over partly to digital cameras in 02, also PC editing of pictures. I still find film work more demanding , as you have to get it right at the start with no auto settings on the camera to cover my mistakes. Pictorial work is my personal interest. Its is not a good idea for me to suggest a particular make of equipment just a type, and its uses.
