These are obviously the shutter speeds ranging from 1/1 sec to 1/1000 sec!

There is no such thing at CameraLabs like a stupid question.
I just thought your girlfriend already had some experience with the speed-dial :)

The K1000 certainly was - and still is - a classic...

I wonder if we'll fondly look back at our DSLRs in a 10 or 20 years and regard them as classics too?

(haha off-topic)
will the world still be around in 10-20 years

and if so i really do wonder what cameras will be like in that time.

didnt Pentax just come oput with a 36mb camera ?

whats it gonna be a human style of an eye that all you do is have to looke at something and it does everything for you and it would be a perfect pic just like the human eye sees , no dead or hot pixels to worry about , no dust or vibration

I suspect we'll still be complaining about noise levels on the latest 72 Megapixel compacts!

Seriously though, it is interesting that DSLRs - surely some of the hottest cameras around right now - are essentially unchanged externally from SLRs of several decades back. It seemed the designers came up with a classic shape which still works well today - albeit with significantly more sophisticated innards...

But what I really don't understand is that they are even bulkier than the SLRs of yesteryear (I had a Olympus OM) although the sensor is just half the size of 35mm film...
