People who get hung up on the shutter count of their camera.
The rated shutter count number is only a guide and is not a guarantee that the shutter will last to that rated number.
The shutter can fail at ANY time...1000 clicks, 20000 clicks, 200000 clicks - it's just the luck of the draw.
I've had three shutters let go - two were way above the rated number, the third slightly below but close enough for it not to matter.
People are likely to upgrade their camera before it gets anywhere near the rated number anyway.

My pet peeve is that no matter how well I calibrate my colors, other people don't usually have calibrated screens, so any of my pictures will look different to them.

Yeah, not much you can do, you output in the sRGB color space and things should look "reasonably OK". Just make sure that your prints come out good!

Nothing new and not just Canon, in 1973-1974 Minolta released the XK for North America, XM for Europe, and the X-1 for Japan.

I loved my XK
I hate when people tell me that my pics look better than the one they took with their telephone, then ask for advice to make them better.
I usually tell them to learn to hold still.

I don't know if you can really call this a "photography" pet peeve...
Looking at people's facebook pages, and seeing poorly lit, shake blurred, harshly flashed, and/or out of focus cell phone pics of themselves standing in front of a mirror.

hehe I actually have one of them in my photo library ;)

I agree it looks weird when someone *only* posts crummy photos on their facebook pages, and they have just nothing even remotely good.

It's not that I'm being uppity or anything like that, it's just that I don't understand wanting to have a real bad picture of yourself on there... If it came out blurry or out of focus, wouldn't you want to keep doing it until you got the best result possible? I've always been like that while taking pictures, even when I knew absolutely nothing.;)

I know, that's how I understood your message, I didn't take offense.

I don't understand that attitude either; good pics aren't so hard to come by, even with a P&S or phone.

1) All of the photos on social media sites where the people have their arms extended way out in front of them to (I assume) hold their cell phones to take photos of themselves. I see very few photos of people with their arms in normal positions anymore.

2) Social media photos of people making funny faces and holding up their fingers, as though that were a particularly clever thing to do for the camera.

3) Social media photos [Sensing a theme here??] of people taking photos of themselves in their bathroom mirrors, especially when you can see other parts of their bathrooms in the background.

4) Social media photos [yes, it is indeed a theme] of people where their faces are distorted because they are holding up their cell phones right next to their faces to get close-up shots.

5) Over-sharpened and over-saturated photos (anywhere, any time).

6) Rude and arrogant remarks on [photography] forums.

7) Answering questions that specify certain parameters with a recommendation that does not fit those parameters, or criticizing the OP for even having parameters.

8) People who post on [photography] forums with "I haven't read the entire thread, but. . ." and then post something that someone else has already posted.

Edit: And yes, I realize that some of my pet peeves are the same as some that have already been posted. Nonetheless, I have read the other posts and they are still my pet peeves, also! :)

Isn't that the whole point of posting photos on a photography forum - or am I missing something?

People who ask questions like "I'm going on holidays to (insert country, city, town, place), is it safe to take my camera or should I leave it at home.

There may not be such a thing as a stupid question, but this must rank as being very close.
