Just For Fun!
« on: July 13, 2013, 05:22:44 PM »
I thought just for fun I'd post the top things I'm sick of hearing in the world of photography.  Here are some that come to mind:

1.  You can shoot better shots with a P&S than a 1Dx if you understand lighting
2.  Gear doesn't matter, it's the photographer
3.  Well, back in the film days...
4.  RAW is a crutch
5.  If you get it right in camera you don't need to do post-processing
6.  Canon's falling way behind in sales because of the D800 and DR
7.  L-glass is ALWAYS better than non-L

That's all I had right now.

Thought of another one:
8.  If you have to ask questions about the <insert gear>, then you don't need it.

"Just my $0.02"

FFS I am sick of seeing that on here. It ADDS NOTHING and makes the offenders look like arses.

It's got to a point now that I just skip any post I see with that in. If people admit their opinions are worthless and are so damn keen to tell me it, then I won't bother reading it. GRRRRRR! This really does frost my Kelvinator.

Also: "+1000".  I MEAN, WHY?

WHY?

---

Also : Quoting huge pages and pages of text in quote boxes (Jrista) and then putting 1 or 2 lines of text at the bottom of it all. Were those 2 lines of text worth my scrolling through all the mostly-irrelevant preceding rubbish? I don't think so.

15. Putting your text in the middle somebody else's quote making others wonder what is being said! In other words not using the preview button before posting! >:(

18. People complaining the next camera has "too many megapixels that they/nobody needs and will take too much HDD space" because they can perfectly print 4x5 size prints with their 10 year old 8 MPixel DSLR...

This has been going since the 10Mpixel DSLRs started to appear, probably even before
