Does anyone here take pictures
Apr 20, 2012

Or just complain?

I love my K5 and macro 100mm.

Take pictures... it's good therapy and makes you happy.

This forum is the complaint department. There are other forums on this site where photography is discussed.

You obviously do both.

This was one of the more Trollish posts I have seen in this forum.

Good luck ... maybe you hit 150.

whine. Constantly. About equipment they've never owned, don't plan to own, and couldn't afford earlier or now. Ya just got to wade through the noobs to get to the photography.

Sure -- just look at the first ten threads
In reply to Andrewteee, Apr 21, 2012

At the time of this post, 8 of the first 10 threads on the list are photo threads, 1 of the 10 is about future Pentax DSLRs, and only 1 is a complaint thread. So I'd say it's a pretty safe bet there are a lot of folks here taking pictures.

Here are a few I've posted recently.

Of course I take photos. I take photos of brick walls to test distortion, of dark closets to test high ISO, and of DIY test charts to test AF. If I didn't take those photos, what would I have to complain about?

This one is from the start of a race here in Oaxaca last Sunday. My American friend Steve is in the pack, and he is not the guy in the bear suit.

When we finally get fully-internet-connected DSLRs, will we use them to shoot, or browse the forums?
