After the Amateur: Notes

Similar motivations can be found in film: the devolution from 35mm to 16mm to 8mm to Super-8 to the video camcorder to the webcam is driven by a desire to increase user-friendliness and decrease the need for learning the technology."

I think all technical apparatusses (do you say that in English?) are getting more user-friendly, while their technology is getting more complex. This is because the feedback relationship the users and the industry have. The result is that equipment is getting more automatic and easier to use (everybody can make sharp pictures) but at the same time people are less critical to their equipment. The result is that people produce images the technical program allows and nothing more.
