    Reciprocity Failure

    Daft question, but how do you pronounce reciprocity? I've only ever read the word.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I pronounce it ress-ih-pross'-ih-tee, though when I'm talking fast it sounds more like ress-uh-pross'-uh-dee.
    And when I'm drunk it sounds like rep-luh-soss'-uh-dee.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/reciprocity and click on the pronunciation speaker.
    If you want to sound like a Mrs Hawking, that is.

    The pronunciation of the second syllable will probably depend on where you're from. 'ah' in some parts of the States, 'uh' in other parts, and I pronouce it with an 'i', because there's a fscking I in it (sorry, had to steal a joke from Eddie Izzard (50 seconds in))
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
