Re: The problem is: this is a rich amateurs forum

While I accept there is a certain amount of
"All the gear ,but no idea"

Often those who can t take a pic to save their lives or have any kind of "eye" take pleasure from having the latest / most expensive gear and talking about it ,thats harmless enough.

The information can be extremely useful and every purchase I ve made recently, has been after "researching" on here .

As it is the "wo/man in the street" and not a paid reviewer who in many cases {not here} has less experience knowledge than your average poster, I can hear "real world " experience and thats invaluable.

It s when they express an opinion with no photos posted {ever} to back it up and just resort to insults {very quickly} .

Once I was accused of being a paid stooge of an alternative camera company, when it strays into that level of paranoia ,well.......
