    Interesting, Henry - but it emphasises the ever-increasing divide between professionals and amateur snappers like me.

    This is particularly the case with photo-editing software - if I start shooting RAW, as this lady suggested, on my Olympus, I can no longer use my old copy of Photoshop - Adobe closed that avenue pretty smartly.

    I have never been comfortable with phone photography (still can't do it as well as a 12-year old), but when on holiday nowadays, I feel like I'm the only guy in town with a 'proper' camera ! People shake their heads sadly at this poor old dinosaur with a chunk of equipment hung around his neck - makes me wonder where we are going with photography.

    "See that bird flying over there?"

    Point and click.

    ACDSee Ultimate handles RAW files without breaking a sweat while the software that came with my (elderly) Pentax K5 does almost anything I throw at it.
    My only irritation with RAW images is size, but that's my own boneheaded fault for shooting at maximum resolution!

    I never seem to have that problem Ferry, must be my usual 'Military Style' bush walking gear!
