Re: gearheads

I have always considered it to be a word that means someone who is more interested in the gear that the activity the gear is for eg someone who enjoys playing with cameras more than taking photos or an audio buff with state of the art hifi who owns only test tracks...that kind of thing.

Of course, it is traditional for photographers to love their toys, it is part of the pasttime.

Personally, I admit to some gearhead-ism but I find a lot of camera designs to have become "gadgety" and I rather like stuff that still has some kind of mechanical feel to it. Like engraved dials you can see the values without having to read a TV screen...
