Title: How young is everyone?
Post by: dolina on October 19, 2017, 04:26:59 PM
CR is probably the most active Canon forum outside of Facebook. I am wondering how young everyone is.

Depends.

On Monday mornings, I feel a lot older....

Median looks as if it is hovering around 57-59.  Good we have one 90+ year old.

Growing old is a fact of life. Growing up is a state of mind.
Not sure what to put.

I’d be curious to run similar surveys across the different brands... it might prove very interesting, and perhaps not.

With all the bickering about which camera/lens is better or worse and complaining about how Canon is screwing everyone with crippled gear....

I would have figured the median age to be about 8.

How many of these surveys are you running.  Each with a different statement.

Miss dolina has a history of creating some ridiculous posts.  Not sure why.

I was listening to a youtube video about the camera industry's sales performance for 2016 (http://'https://youtu.be/mXB4DSgBLbg').

Smartphone, point & shoot, mirrorless and DSLR users age was brought up. I am trying to verify if what he said rang true.

Reproducibility and replicability together are among the main principles of the scientific method.

So if I get the same results 100x then what was said on the video is correct.

Wow, I had no idea demographics here would sway so heavily toward the 50+ crowd.

And it shows, I think this forum has the perfect balance of maturity while still keeping up with the times.

I strive to be a data driven nag! :D

Although there is some deviation when it comes to other brands like Sony. The bell curve skews a bit south.

You mean CR is not a *photography* forum, just a Canon gear collector (and bashers) one? :D

Indeed, you are correct - they are very similar. And, the logical deduction is probably either CR = FM or CR ≠ photography forum but = just a Canon forum.

Anyway, we might discover which forum has the younger membership.

If I were to right a script to count how many posts with pictures vs without pictures are made per user then it may come out that way. ;)

Although I wouldnt do it out of respect to Craig who pays the bills around here.  ;D

Now the trick is to find out where else I posted these silly ass polls on. ;)

Good luck!  ;D

It looks you posted in DPReview as well, but the post has been removed.

Istorya?

Maybe somewhere else, but until Google crawls...

Anyway, here often we discuss photography without posting images - I don't have my catalog always available.

FM has a similarly aged membership and also does have a 93+ year old. Is that you dolina?

3x as many have voted on FM than here.

I had it removed because I excluded the 1999-2017 option.

Didnt repost it anymore because the initial results was pretty much the same.

I'm at the opposite end of the bell curve.

Well the 60's/70's is taking the lead.  Not a very scientific poll (only shows the age of those who answer not the age of those on the site so it can be very misleading) but it's interesting nonetheless.

I guess the Fuji and Sony mirrorless crowd are mostly 7 to 12 years old kids? :)

The Sonys are slightly younger by a decade. :)

At the time of this reply, the results were something like 32% and 44% in the middle two ranges of 38-74 yrs old respectively).  That's 74 out of 96 (or the vast majority).  Merging the two categories into one and the data showing the older group as the larger bias, you could weight them to slightly biased towards the older group.  So non-scientifically about 55-60 yrs of age as the main "peak" of the bell curve. 


...roughly the margin of age when expendable income has peaked, midlife-crises are occurring or have just occurred, and professional careers are peaking (all of which would lead to bad GAS - or good GAS, or just GAS).  GAS likely being the main contributor to forum membership?!??

44.3% are between 56 and 38. The peak has visually to be younger than 56, not between 55-60. The peak is closer to 50.

Oops, you're right, I inverted the two groups by percentage.

This is not a bell curve, it's a six fingered Canonite coming in from the left flipping the bird. And I'm doing my best to make that bird stick out a li'l bit more.
