How young is everyone?

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....
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

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.
I'm limping by with my current equipment... once I get that new lens with IS and blue goo... then I'll finally be able to go out and take my first decent picture...

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.

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, for one, approve of your scientific consistency in data collection!   :P ;D

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.
