If only they look at the camera and notice that there's no flash attached anywhere on the camera.

Their cameras have built-in flash, so that's what they expect.

You must be one of the conspirators who is trying to drive up the usage of 'awesome', which was commented by a number of folks earlier in this thread.  :p

However, at present, based upon 2015 posts alone, 'amazing' is included in 787 pages of Search listings and 'awesome' is included in 774 pages of Search listings-- in the first 2.7 months of 2015....so amazing is more abused and misused than awesome. :-(

(I have posted both words in this post, so as to not bias the tabulation.)

And for the entire first quarter of 2015, we have in excess of (Search limit reached) 1000 posts with 'amazing' vs. 986 posts with 'awesome'.

"EXIF please?" Well. In some threads it makes sense to look at the EXIF data and sometimes it's like asking a master sculptor what size of shizel he used and at what angle did he hold it?

"that's a good beginner's camera" or "you have an eye for photography, you should charge for your photos"

I don't know about the rest of you but for me the most used phrase is, "Ma'am please. I'm not THAT kind of photographer! "



Ain't nothin but a thing.

"When will the new xD(n+1) be announced? I understand it's gonna be really amazing compared to the old xD(n) that was launched earlier this last year."

In my little corner of the photography world -

'look and feel'
'upscale'
'can you do it for less?' :lol:


My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'

Buttery-smooth bokeh. I feel like I should be spreading it on a cracker.

"Don't get me wrong [...]". If you think people may get you wrong, you should rephrase what you say instead.


My gear: EOS 60D | EF-S 10-18 STM | Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 | EF-S 24 STM | EF 50 F/1.8 | EF-S 55-250 IS | EF 100 F/2.8 macro | 430EX.
