Ok over the past year or so I have noticed a very sad trend. People don't research, they don't try to figure things out, and they don't READ THE ****** MANUAL. I point the finger at the culprits being mainly young (my age, 23 and younger) who have grown up with computers and spent their lives at school being spoon fed information. For instance it is one thing to ask about HDR on the forum when a quick google search of even this forum search would give you more than you wanted to know to begin with, but it's quite another to post a question like how do you prevent the flash from firing, or who do I set my white balance. That little book that came with you camera, I don't want to hear you complain about it being over 100 pages, READ IT, and if you don't want to read it, at least look through the INDEX if the solution is in there. I mean is that so difficult? It sounds obvious, but it's everywhere not even limited to photography. I saw this even at uni today. I study engineering so we're kind of expected to go out and do a bit of research. 2 hours before our exam on transmission lines someone asked me how to solve one of the tute questions. I nearly lost it. 1) it was answered in the tute, 2) the solutions are up on the course website (person in question had his laptop next to him), and 3) that question was the first example in the set chapter in the prescribed textbook. Am I the only one who gets really ticked off about this?
