I still do now and then. I had the old Swedish camera repaired.
The governor let go after only 50 years of service. Shocking!

I use the mirrorless (previously, the Coolpix P510 that served me over 10 years) to "proof" scenes for film-worthiness. (JK)

I still use the Coolpix, though I upgraded it to the "Yerkes Telescope" model.
I took it with me on a visit to the SF Bay Area, where it took great shorebird photos.
The new Coolpix was just too heavy, what with 2 mirrorless cams hanging on my shoulders.

To save time later, I do preview the images on the spot. That also tells me if I goofed with some setting, or if I left the SD card in the computer. I don't use the bluetooth on the camera, to lessen the battery load. I may change my mind on that matter.
