Brian:

Price point is probably exactly why.... Just seems silly here until I start to think about some of the background level stuff....

I once had an IBM salesman respond to a "why can't it do this?" question with "it'd be trivial, but we'd spend a fortune changing the documentation".... (Imagine that - computers used to come with something more than a PDF ....) (OK, it was a much bigger computer .)

Then there was the flowcharting software I used to use once in a while. A comment in their manual to the effect that "we considered removing this feature, but figured that some hog farmer in Iowa is using it to count his stock"....

Just seems like switching to manual would let the CPU presume "what light you see is what you'll get" if it knows that there's no feedback from the lens - that's software, and software changes are cheap. 'Course, then there's the manual....

Oh well.... If I didn't really like the camera (and had a few bucks to spare), I'd fix it .... Could be worse. My daughter still is trying to steal the D60 from me. If I had the money....

Regards,

Why just a quick note when you can write a novel?
