awinphoto: Wouldn't that go for my situation, too, or no? It's not going to change what I plan to do, but at least for my conscience's sake...

The dad of a friend of mine was at the 1952 winter Olympics in Norway waiting to watch skiers come down the slope. Next to him sees this guy with a bunch of photography gear. The guy asks him if he knows how to shoot a camera and would he take photos with one of his cameras as skiers go by so he gets some extra shots(camera all set up, just frame and push the button). Turns out he's from Life Magazine!
Long story short one of my friend's/dads "photos" ends up in Life Magazine. Photographer sends him a thank you letter with a print of the photo. It's debatable who the photographer was but in this case ownership definitely went to the pro/Life magazine.
This post is opening up a lot of spin offs, I'm loving it :-)
Hmmm...the legal ownership would definitely take this thread in a different direction than I was going to take it.
Well, in your example, it's all in the circumstances. The owner of the camera, which also happens ot be the person that input the settings, is "the photographer of that photo," . . .no matter if a bird comes along and happens to land on the shutter button.
If I were to lend the camera to a person and that individual input settings and then took the picture with my camera, THAT person would be the photographer.
+1 in CL. Just make sure you meet F2F.
