Leica fanboys. Canon fanboys. Nikon fanboys. In that order.

People with mirrorless/DSLRs who shoot on auto (or don't even know how to zoom...yes...I've met those).

People who suggest that those who would do best with a decent compact should get a DSLR.

Has anyone complained about the totally inadequate strength of hot shoes?

As a designer myself I can understand the concept of a replaceable link that will break between two more valuable components that hopefully won't get broken if the link is the first to go if the assembly is impacted or dropped. OKAY, THAT MAKES SENSE.

So why isn't it easily replaceable? How come I have had them fail and dropped flashes because of them so many times? And why oh why is the canon off camera flash cord so weakly built that experienced users know to take the flash end apart and fill it with epoxy right out of the box because if you don't it will take itself apart and you will have to fill it with epoxy then?

The reason I am more of lurker than poster is because of people's arrogance and intolerance towards others. Not to me personally, but to those with basic questions, entry level skills, varying interests etc. Most people on the boards are friendly and supportive, but there are a lot who aren't.

So my biggest pet peeve is this intolerance. I come to the boards to learn, share my love of the art, etc. Not to hear elitists and people who claim to be experts belittle the less experienced. All the while, their portfolio looks very average. An artist is an artist with a pencil or CAD. The greats didn't have 24 megapixel, auto focusing beasts of cameras. But their work is eternal.

I know I am venting. But, isn't that the reason for the post? :)

Welcome everyone and share your knowledge. Enjoy photography together. But, don't feed the trolls.


this is what turns me off on a lot of forums I'm a member of.

instead of wasting time posting "use the search function" why not just effin help the person.

People selling items and posting links to what it looks like new on the website rather than posting photos of the acutal items they have for sale

Capturing a great shot, that looks perfect on the camera. But when you get home and pull it up, it is a lot softer than you expected. (I didn't read all the responses, sorry if I copied anyone)
Oh, and no way to really fix it, unless the camera happens to be hooked up to a computer where you can see the results bigger on the spot (sometimes zooming in, you still can't see it on camera) Just have to make sure the settings are set better next time.

Thats why I love the 100% instant view on my D700. I use it almost all the time to cull pictures in camera. OOF shots instantly get deleted.

Well, what a hilarious thread :lol:

Thanks everyone for making my day brighter.


As for my photography pet peeves:

Top, is when people state 'facts' about photography/cameras/le​nses/etc., which are in truth, only their opinion.

And another peeve is seeing pictures of other peoples' kids in standard 'poses'. The emotional bond simply isn't there....thus, to me, their kids are NOT "super-cute" simply by being photographed.

Regards to all other "peeved" people.

Simon

Hello Simon. How's the family?

My pet peeves are legion, and Pekka has insufficient server space to store them all.

Yesterday I grabbed my camera to rattle off some quick shots of household pets in the sunshine, and wondered why after a quick handful of shots the settings were whacky and I was getting jpegs, and noticed that at some point the dial had been moved from Manual to Auto!
