you spend 5 minutes wondering why your camera seems to raise the mirror, wait 30 seconds and then drop the mirror without taking a picture. You then take off the old MF lens and replace it with a 24-105 which does the same.

???

oh yeah, mirror lock up.

duh.

Most of you are hitting way too close to home. I LOL'd at checking the cover of the B&W paper box - you learn that lesson the hard way so it sticks awhile.

The last time I moved about 20 years ago, I found a couple of rolls of Kodachrome 64 in my freezer. I don't know how long they had been in there.

I look at my Minolta and Canon SLR cameras bought new in the late 60's (that still work great with all their state-of-the-art lenses) with nostalgia of all the places we've been together. When I see them, I feel guilty that I don't take them with me anymore, left behind like an old dog that just can't keep up with the young dogs in the field. I still pick them up to make sure they're still clean and dry, caress them like the old dog, and put them back away.

When the camera won't take anymore photos, you almost try to pry the back open...

Just a few weeks ago I gave my two Nikon F cameras, all my Nikkor lenses, and all the accessories for the package to my son (who is 36 years old). I doubt he'll try to run any film through the cameras, but he realizes what he has and the history behind them.

... when you realize that the first half-dozen of this morning's shots are beyond recovery, 'cause you were still shooting with the settings from the jazz gig last night once more.

... when you can remember single flash bulbs
