Chimping is okay, but don't rely too much on it.

The other day, while shooting in raw, I took two very important shots. While chimping later on, I realized they were too dark and deleted one. Just as I was about to delete the second I realized I needed the shot. Later I fixed it and am glad I kept it.

Don't delete based on chimping. Download the files and then decide later.


Thank you. bw!

Nothing wrong with chimping - so long as you aren't making the noises.

I am and will always be a chimper! There I admitted it!

If the technology is there, it is stupid and ignorant not to use it to improve the quality of your output.

I didn't even know what "chimping"is - had to look it up.

Well, back in film days there was no such thing - so I didn't.

In the film days, "chimping" was called "Polaroid back." Those were available even for the Nikon F and F-2 and the Canon F1.

Oh, I remember - I thought those backs were only for Mamiya and Hasselblad...

Not available for my K1000... ;)

I chimp after taking a photo. Then I yell, "Brilliant!" just like the guys do in this video.

It helps prove the point that I am a magnificent photographer to everybody around.

^^Always enjoy chimping responsibly. BRILLIANT! :)

I loves to turn my camera around and let the audience chimp. Share the chimp love I say...

Hope the TF doesn't see that. :lol:

Ah ha, mention the TF when you say something dumb and it won't strike. Tricky.

The LCD is there for you to use. If you or anyone else thinks you're somehow less of a photographer because you like to review what you shot, screw 'em. That is regressive thinking.

The people that ridicule others for "chimping" are probably the same ones I see b*tchin' about the size/resolution/poor quality of the LCD. :rolleyes:

I "chimp" because I haven't learned to interpret composition from a histogram...even on the 1D Mk III. :)

Or whether that hairlight actually flashed.

Chimping is a must for teleidoscope photography.

The Abe Lincoln quote serves two purposes. It is appropriate for anyone who belittles others for using a design feature provided for the benefit of the camera's user. In this case, it was directed at the reply, from RDKirk, to my first post. I took it to be a negative comment insinuating that I did not know how to interpret whether a hair light had fired. This did not answer the OP's question and was totally irrelevant to the subject of this thread. For that matter, the only image in my post was my avatar. That picture is essentially a snapshot, taken with on camera flash, not under studio conditions. Therefore, I believe his comment was unreasonable. If I misinterpreted his intent, I humbly appologize.
