94.  I want to buy a tripod for my 5D3.  I have up to $50.  Recommendations please.  Oh and it must do video.

95.  People who like your entire album on facebook instead of just the pictures they liked.


I KNOW you didn't like every picture, so stop being lazy!

97. People who post a photo in a non-gallery thread on the premise of illustrating a point they are making about a lens or other gear, when the photo adds nothing to the point being made and it's obvious the poster is simply seeking acclaim for the photo itself, not realising that the photo is, in fact, rubbish.

98. People who say they "could care less" when they actually mean they "couldn't care less."

99. People who consider third party gear to be nothing more than leverage against Canon's pricing policy rather than products that might actually be worth buying. "Apparently this new Tamron/Sigma/Yongnuo is well built, great value and performs brilliantly. Hopefully it will force Canon to keep the price reasonable when they announce their MkII."

Hmm.

 "Could care less" implies that there is some level of care about the topic that could be reduced. Likely, if the level of care about the topic were reduced, there would be no comment at all.

"Couldn't care less" implies that the bottom level of carrying has already been reached, no further reduction of the level of care is possible.

While there is a subtle difference between the two, I couldn't care less.
Or maybe I could.

100.  People who post just so they can hit a specific number.

101.  People who post just to increase their post count.

102. People approaching me with my 5D Mark III / 70-200 2.8L IS II: "Whoa how much does such a camera cost, 1000€?"

103. "Tamron sucks. Generally. Everything S___. Canon L is the best."

90. The person with a 18-55 on his whatever trying to ask about my lens.

91. The people with point and shoots asking about and complimenting my "huge camera". (7D with BG, 300 2.8 + TC2x; not really that big, and in the everglades, sometimes rather small... Lens envy is real!)

These are a bit harsh.

I just don't see the problem with people trying to strike up a conversation. 

A person with a 18-55 can't talk to "real" photographers?

Someone complimenting you about your gear is bad?
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I agree, I made a similar fun post but mine was from a real life experience when being bugged by a guy while I was shooting composing, looking through viewfinder....I love talking shop, just do it at the proper time, it's really easy to see when that is.

On the rare occassions I engage in conversation with another photographer I try and keep it away from gear.  I'm far more interested in getting the scoop on local attractions, wildlife, vantage points etc.

"I see you have a mass produced device that does its job efficiently and predictably, I too have a mass produced device that does its job efficiently and predictably"

Zzzzzzzz.

More interested in if they've seen any adders, or where the best view is, are they in a club, what kind of work are they doing.

to each their own. some are gear heads others are not. meanwhile I'll be handcrafting a rival to the 1DX…..

Don't get me wrong, I like nice gear.  I definately take better pics on nicer gear, which I think means I am the weakest link in the chain.  But I have my gear and I'm happy with it.  I trust somebody else out enjoying their photography is happy with theirs.

That sorted, there are more interesting things to discuss with another photographer, especially if like me you are in locations for a specific shot, I'd rather tap the local knowledge is more important than discuss the banalities of how much somebody else likes kit that I'm not shooting with.

I'm with you on that sentiment. I for one do not seek anyone out on gear chat. I am however approached very frequently, usually the person is VERY EXCITED and is either new to the craft or ready to upgrade and usually to something I have. The 5D3 and the 1DX can get some folks (read:noobs) doing mental camera masturbation upon sight. Same for white glass.

That sounds like a fault.  I've checked all my lenses and the glass is translucent.
