Ok, how many of you took the term "ISO Noise" literally? Be honest. I was really trying to listen to the camera on different ISO levels. Sure it sounds silly, but I'm sure there are some others.

I never notice it.

The noise gets drowned out by the sound of my Tamron lens focusing and my Sunpak flash recycling.

That really brightened my day lol.

But I found myself wondering for quite a while why many photographers used multi-flashing strobes (disco lights) - and wondered what on earth they used them for; until I found out that in the US at least, a strobe is just a local name for a flash :)

Well, you might be advised to shoot in the RAW and to chimp before stopping down the glass.

The first thing I thought of when I read this was something that happened to a British student down here in Miami in my college years. He walked up to a few guys (football player types) who were smoking and said something along the lines of "hey, you guys look like you know where I can find some fags". Luckily, his Brit-born, American-raised friend was there with him to explain to everyone why not to beat him to near death ("fags" are appearently slang for cigarettes in jolly old England, not the derogatory term for homosexual men here in the states)

I keep telling people we don't speak English, we speak American.
