how often do you use your cameras

During the winter months I hibernate. :laugh: Now it's getting warmer I'll be out a lot of Sundays at the airport. I'll also take the camera to work on occasion just to get out at lunch onto the hilltops.

I carry a compact everywhere - don't shoot as much as I used to but it's handy for when the notion takes me or something of interest pops up :)

I shoot several hundred shots when away on Hols though and take a larger sensor camera with me for those.

Had the intention to use at least once a week when not on holiday (when it gets extensive use) but just don't have the time or anywhere interesting to shoot nearby that I haven't shot before.
Therefore at the moment it's maybe once a month if that :(

Again, once the sun is out then I'll take it on our walks etc... and come October it'll be used extensively for baby pics!
:)

Any chance that I can. Usually 2 or 3 evenings during the week and all weekends too. Might be several hundred shots ... or just a handful.

Holidays or family /friends gatherings mainly.
Oh and a couple of fancy dress parties lately.:D

If you're @Dancook it is permanently glued to your face wherever you go. :D

I use mine a lot less than I would like to, and it's probably only seen the light of day a couple of times this year. :(
If I don't use my camera for a day or two I start to feel down.. :(
you mean to say @Dancook has a face glued to his camera right? :D:laugh:

Best of luck with the baby :clap:

back on topic, i have been using it mostly for work recently because theres not much to photograph around where I am, I feel like I have "done" it all :( but yh, holidays is another one for me, carrying SLR gear is such a chore though :rolleyes:

Wish I'd taken my camera with me on a walk down the Basingstoke canal yesterday. Saw some perfect opportunities such as Moorhens in their nests on the canal and beautiful swans. Was just a shopping trip so didn't bother taking it, doh! Definitely next time though and am tempted to try street photography but not sure I have the balls ;)

Actually I'm waiting for Dan to buy the whole range of Micro 4/3s lenses (which he seems well on his way to doing) and posting pics so that I can see which are worth getting :D

Thanks for the baby congrats - will promise not to post too many pictures

I just bought the 25mm 1.4 today :)

I understood the rattlesnake noise was the continual EVF/LCD adjustment to the fluorescent lights flickering in the store. Turning off flicker reduction or going outside fixed it..

....bit odd how that could make a noise...

I think it was constantly trying to adjust the aperture blades because the exposure kept changing perhaps. Might be wrong there though... something changes mechanically to compensate it seems

I see what you're saying but my understanding was that feature was "superficial" as opposed to "functional" - no exposure impact just "how it looks in the evf"
