Question by Chaz: Why don’t you just anwer the question?
Do people simply ignore the question asked or are they showing off?
Q: “I need to imprint the date on the image when I take the picture. This is required for authentication of the date for work. Can you tell me what camera…?”
A: Why don’t you just look at the Exif data?
A: Don’t do that. It’s ugly.
A: Just add it in photoshop.
Q: “How do you take a long exposure using a Pentax ZX-5?”
A: I don’t know how to do it on a ZX-5, but… (why bother answering?)
A: Don’t forget that you can boost the ISO before shooting.
Q: “I am looking for a camera that will fit in my pocket for travel…”
A: Skip the pocket cameras. They are not very good.
A: You really should get a dslr instead.
A: Nikon has a new camera with an 18X zoom lens that should be awesome.
Q: “How do I develop black and white film?”
A: Why are you still using film?
A: Take it to a camera shop.
A: You should be shooting slides.
If you don’t have time to read the question, don’t bother answering. Really.
Q: “I have a Canon XTi and I want to buy a new lens. Is it worth it to get image stabilized lenses?”
A: If you buy a Pentax camera, you can use any lens because the stablization is built into the camera.
Q: “What is a good camera for me if I just take snapshots of myself and my friends forMySpace and e-mail? My budget limit is $ 150-160.”
A: You should get a Nikon D40 which is only $ 500 with a lens. It will take better pictures.
A: The Canon Powershot SD850 has cool effects in the camera that you can use on myspace. (The answer ignores the budget limit.)
Q: “Is there a digital camera for around $ 250 that lets you set the image to a 4×6 ratio?”
Predicted answer, which ignores the $ 250 limit: Pretty much any DSLR will give you the 4×6 ratio, so get a DSLR.
