You forgot to mention: visualization many hours, days, weeks or more after imaging; carcinogenic chemical exposure in developing and printing; and lousy control on printing and for that matter developing. As far as optics, manual lens design and limited coating technolgy. As far as sensor, scratch suseptability, miserable dynamic range, receprocity failure (nonlinear responsivity). Man, we were primitives!

Thanks, well it was a while ago I shot it...

Imagine that one could take photos with a camera that has 0.3 fps, extreme noice (or was it called grain?) even at 400 ASA(!), manual "autofocus" (yes, with the hand), primes - with heavy light fall off and unsharp corners (mine at least), only room for 36 images on the "memory card", NO HISTOGRAM, no lcd and TTL zero.

What's good at those days was the Full Frame, big bright viewer, the instant on, functionality without battery and extremly light body...

This is a remarkable photo! A fantastic, once in a life time catch.-Yoni
