I usually have enough sense to figure out what words mean by listening to the context, but this one has me baffled.

I would really like to learn how to chimp, because it sounds like so much fun! I just hope it doesn't require a trip to the zoo.

Chimping is checking your shots on the camera's LCD while you are shooting an event rather than just shooting and looking them over when you are done. Some people say it's only chimping if you actually make the "ooh ooh ooh" sounds when you get a good shot. :D

Here's a funny video about the topic on Sportsshooter.com:

The less we promote idiotic terms like "chimping", the better. Let it die.

Seems pretty harmless to me, Scott. With any new technology comes some slang (I'm "surfing" now).

Thanks to pcasciola for the insight.

Thanks, Bruce!
Personally, I NEVER chimp! I was just looking at my histogram, I swear!

When I get a "perfect" histogram, I walk around and force others to chimp it until they admire the shot - then I move on to the next victum-
Some get quite upset - but I think it is just jealousy.
Sometimes I "preload" a bunch on the CF card and then lie like crazy about my settings - that really gets'em.
Notice how I only used the "C" word once, so as not to offend purists too much?

You're a serial chimper.

I take PHOTOGRAPHY seriously - but never myself. If you can't laugh at yourself before you laugh at others - you have missed a big part of life.

Darnit, I've been a "chimper" without even knowing it!!

Is there any professional help for this, or is it just something I have to live with? I mean, any settings I could use to avoid this chimping? :D :D
