you take out a 70-200 2.8 to figure out what the smallest aperture is.

nope, no aperture ring. :rolleyes:


i had been poking around DXO Mark and they listed it's at 2.8 - 32, i honestly never even considered it being that small. don't know why i doubted it either, except that i've probably never taken it over f/11


okay, your turn, give me a "man i'm not so bright" moment

After several failed attempts to get a particular shot, you think, For pity's sake, I'm just wasting film!

You can still find a local lab the will push-process your color film.

you might be an old photographer if you made sure put the lid on your b&w 8 X 10 paper before you turned on the lights.

...if you don't change the ISO (ASA) because you still think once it's loaded, it cant be set until the next roll.

Took me about 6 months to get used to the concept of changing ISO from shot to shot with digital.

If you find yourself constantly twiddling the diopter adjustment on the viewfinder to accommodate different combinations of eyeglasses and contacts.

You are an old photographer when you can't be bothered to learn all the new options on the latest camera you bought... Old? The devil is old.... :)
I am not old, just older.

Chronologically endowed is the proper term I believe.

too old to remember any less than brilliant moments? :D

or like LV, too smart to share them with the crowd?


I will never be one to refuse to learn the latest tech. But, i just had a birthday, so I'm probably feeling more chronologically endowed than usual.

Actually, I have too many "less than brilliant" moments to list. The most recent: A couple days ago I saw a species of wasp in my yard that I hadn't shot before, so I scrambled out of the pool, ran in the house and put my macro lens, extension tube, and flash unit on my 5DIII, set the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and flash up as I always do when shooting macro, and managed to find the wasp again. I happily got off several shots before he flew away. I checked out the images and they were all blurry :-( I had forgotten to set the camera to M; it was in Aperture Priority, and slowed my shutter speed way down. RRrrrrr

Another frequent mistake is forgetting to turn IS off on a tripod, or forgetting to turn it on after it's taken off the tripod.

The IS thing is not that bad as all IS except for the oldest handle being tripod mounted without issue.
