    I was at a car show today. Brought my camera stuff, of course.

    I couldn't help but be so bothered by the people who show up with a D700 and f/2.8 zoom, then piss away the thousands of dollars spent on camera equipment capable of utmost technical quality by using the popup flash :banghead:

    I had my D40 along, using my 18-55, 55-200 and 35/1.8 handheld up to ISO 1600 with no flash and I got by just fine.

    I wish people would learn how to use their cameras rather than spray-and-pray in auto mode.

    Just had to get that off my chest.

    EDIT: w00t for post #1000 :D

    Why be angry? Those click-and-pray people are financing the R&D on your next upgrade :)

    Heh... true enough, good point :lol:

    Still, something about people with more money than brains really bothers me.

    I hate the popup flash on my D 70. If I don't have flash with me then I turn the flash off.

    Actually, it pisses me off more to have the shutter open on my flashless camera and have someone pop their little popup making this nice little star in the paint.

    I don't care how others use their cameras, just as long as they ain't flashing my subject wile I am shooting it.

    I guess I'm in the minority. It makes me wince with pain when I see other people doing things so incorrectly that I could do so much better.

    Worry about the important stuff and you'll find less frustrations in your life.

    What I find even more hilarious is when you see that guy with the fancy MK** whatever and he's hopelessly flipping through menus and frantically altering the AF settings in hopes of getting something useful out of his amazing camera. Meanwhile all the D** and X** are happily snapping away without a care in the world. :mrgreen:

    Oh wait... that was a reflection of me in a mirrored window, noob! :lol: :lol:
