nah dats japanese dood

Being serious for just a few milliseconds, they really do say, "ahh sooo" here.

And it means exactly what we gleamed from all those old stereotyping movies.

Now, back to idiots who can't spell or even use a digital camera.....

Knicker-twisting, you say? Tell me more about this fascinating concept.

British slang:
Verb

to (external link) get (external link) one (external link)'s (external link) knickers (external link) in (external link) a (external link) twist (external link)


  1. (idiomatic (external link)) To become overwrought (external link) or unnecessarily (external link) upset (external link) over a trivial (external link) matter.
I trust the definition suits the OP's feelings and actions at the time ;) Usually you do not want to be around someone who has their knickers in a twist, although it does sound intriguing, unfortunately.

It's a bit like a wedgie in your cranky pants!

Ha thanks, it's a Capitol MX-II (35mm). I picked it up yesterday for $2 complete with manual, cap, strap and case. Maybe I'll get some lomo goodness out of these 4 rolls that expired in 2004.

It features creaky plastic construction, four scene modes from cloudy to sunny (f5.6-f16), a fixed shutter and focus, and the best thing about it... a 50mm "Optical Lens" as opposed to the other kind - says so right on the front!

I gather that these are the same cameras Time magazine used to give away with subscriptions.

Thanks! It was a single light source, but I cheated a little. It was a 7-frame HDR through a graduated ND.

What's even more amazing is your DOF. What kind of aperture do you need to have a DOF of over 93,000,000 miles?!?

I just took my new 5DmkII for its first shoot. Since I've been using a XTi for the past 2 1/2 years, I had problems with the mkII:

I couldn't get quickly to the controls I needed, which button/knob do I press, I NEVER looked at the LCD on top of the body, I had trouble using the spot metering, why are there more than one photo shown on the rear LCD, top wheel or back wheel. And this even AFTER I read the manual.

I'll always give "beginners" a break since I've gone through the same things they are going through.

Now, as for the truly stupid, that's another story:D


Too much stuff, not enough shooting time.

Canon T4i (2 lenses), Fuji X100s, Olympus OM-D EM-1 (3 lenses)

Virtually any aperture with the focus set at the hyperfocal distance or greater.

Hey, "infinity" is, well, infinite!

I will go my whole life learning about cameras and probably only get 1/2 as good as most people on here now (no joke) I am a slow learner and do not devote enough time :(

Simon, you don't need to attach that each time, just use this address:

I was at Canon Irvine a couple of weeks ago and I was somewhat amused when I saw a mother describe her problem - she was in "running man mode" when the camera malfunctioned.

Sole reliance on auto modes bothers me a twange because you can push the camera so much more: 1600 ISO! Go! Even me, a P-mode JPEG shooter, vastly prefer my 20D shots @ 1600 ISO over my SX110 shots @ 200 ISO.
