OH MY GOD!!! I don't normally post while working but there is a guy shooting near me. He has a brand new 7D and a 70-200 2.8 IS L II and shoot full auto. I just want to go take it from him and tell him he does not deserve it. I mean built in flash full auto :evil:

The top of annoyingness, right? :twisted:

I've seen people shooting pro/semipro camera like the 7D in full auto ("full-blown idiot mode" - Kai Wong), flashing landscapes, crazy strobing popup flash for autofocus and all that. Annoys the hell outta me! Having a 70-200/2.8L IS II on it doesn't make it better!
The only good thing about the auto mode on the 5D2 is that there is no pop up flash! :lol:

Btw, to you rangefinder owners, how does a rangefinder viewfinder look with the lens cap on?

The man next to me at a baseball game last summer was shooting with a 70-200 f/2.8 mounted onto his D300s. He was wondering why none of his photos were coming out with the pop-up flash. These are the people that walk into a camera store with $5000 thinking that their new gear will make them a better photographer, but are absolutely clueless in the wild.

I couldn't agree more! It just shows that they assume a more expensive camera equates to better photos but I see it as a wasted opportunity.

Always, when people want to take a picture with one of my cameras, I just quickly make the right adjustments for them (I always shoot in A or M) so they can take a picture. And when my eye sees them taking the body and only wanting to turn the camera to iA mode I grisp my body back as fast as I could. My camera will NOT EVER been used with anyting else than the PASM modes.

Never ever.

I agree with all of you, I have a superzoom camera and I use it ONLY on Manual mode, only on rare occasions where I might not have time to adjust the settings, I shoot either of the PASM modes (depending on the situation, of course).
I hate those noobs using $2000+ cameras and shooting in full auto, clueless about what is exposure, let alone shutter and aperture values :evil:

I didn't think about it until now but I'm surprised he's not using live view like a point-n-shoot :lol:

Well the view finder on a Rangefinder isnt looking through the lens... so u do not see a blackness when the lens cap is on.

that guy was probably wondering why the exposures he's set his M6 at is too low... the TTL metering is through the lens itself though. ^^

I'm sure he was/will be surprised to see that all his photos turned out to be purely black! :P

Yeah, probably
Wouldn't the focusing overlay look wierd though?

It's black and white photography, only without the white! :P
