Pilots call that the Cross Check!

This is a great thread and there has been a lot of good information provided. So thanks to everyone for that. For me, since I'm not a pro, my needs are pretty minimal but there are still things that are important to remember so I will occasionally make lists that mostly pertain to the gear I want to bring or things that need to be done before hand, like charging batteries. There is one thing that I am surprised no one brought up here that can minimize the need for some checklists and that is simply getting into the habit of reading your camera information in your viewfinder or LCD screen prior to each shot. There isn't a lot you will miss if you are constantly scanning your camera settings.

Another thing I just thought of is that you could easily type out your various lists on your computer and photograph the computer screen so that all of that information is now in your camera. If it was the first photo on your memory card it would be quick to access and view.


Great point Tim! That is drilled into military pilots during instrument training.  Scan in a method you like and make it a habit! And trust your instruments!
