I don't know if I have the high score around here, but it isn't for a lack of trying!

I'm an 8.5 out of 10.
I mostly buy new, and I usually talk about other nerdy stuff before cameras.

2-3 at most.  #6 and talking mostly of cameras but only with friends who have the same hobby as mine.  For part-time photography work, gear talk is minimal.  It's mostly on how to engage the client, techniques and poses.  It's more of a creative conversation than technical.  Most of the time (when not working), I just bring my G11 so as to minimize the contents of my backpack except when our family goes to a place that's very interesting.  For everyday photography, I find my G11 sufficient.  If any smartphone will have manual controls + comparable IQ, I'll immediately switch my G11 for it.

Ouch, #5 hurt....

Brought back old memories of the request to "bring a camera" for a group picture at a Christmas party.   I wont go into the details.... too painful.   Lets just say I outdid the Christmas lights, and the 32lb Majestic tripod was present.... the pain... I need a bourbon quick...

Somehow I managed to find an understanding girlfriend.

Me too, and she's instrumental to my photography because we go places together and she's very patient with me taking pictures, but also keeps track of time so we don't linger with one subject and move on in a timely manner. Sometimes she will even hold some of my gear for me, for instance if I'm using two bodies, she will hold the idle body (but she complains about the weight of a gripped body and the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II so I won't burden her too much).

Somehow it works great for us - she likes going places and I love photography. Hence we're something of a dynamic duo! :)

On the other hand 'porn' may actually also apply to stills I guess. It brings a whole different meaning to the words 'exposure', 'aperture', and yes, 'focus breathing' heheheh  :o ;)

Hmmm I'm a geek too, trying to express those things in photo-terminology...  ::)

When I get my Sigma 200-500, I'll have it in 18% grey; Everyone and their monkey is going to take photos of it, they may as well look nice.

Since the past 2 years I have great bokeh in my vision ... all I need to do is remove my reading glasses  ;D ... for deep dof I have to wear +2.00 reading glasses and it is only getting worse every year ;D

If I rub my eyes, REALLY HARD, I see some cool color patterns!  ;D
If I don't then the noise is pretty random and organic and confined to luminance channel only.
Since these sensors are always stuck on live-view I don't have the software to boost in real-time to check for possible underlying patterns.  It's OK tho, because in normal earthly lighting conditions they have exceptional dynamic range, resolution and the ability to identify the faintest of adjacent shade/tonal differences, probably exceeding 16 bit/color.  ;)

And with that I'm gonna go away and let that post-count sit for a little while.

...or if you carry and use pupil-dilating eyedrops to achieve a lower f-number and increased OOF blur.

Having had this done twice recently, it's unpleasant. You can't read for a couple of hours afterwards, and things are too bright, not surprisingly. It's not worth it, folks; don't bother!
