    FYI: I have come to steer clear of cliveh treads, but as I am presently making a video with a GoPro2, I was sufficiently intrigued to stick a toe in the water. I totally accept the tool for what it is. The resulting video is merely a string of jpeg stills. And for the record (in case you didn't know), I shoot and print plenty of "stills" in film formats ranging from small to large. Brrrrrrrrrrrr....

    Where are the mods when you need them? This is just another pointless thread. No, that is not a reference to the original question, although it has been asked before. I have high respect for those involved in this thread and I enjoy these sort of posts. However, this is the kind of crap that is going to make people steer clear of this forum.

    When human expression is at stake spray and pray has always been a basic tactic. It's not easy to get the real magic out of a face. With still life you can afford hours of preparation and a few single shots. With people you can as well, but the final result is not guaranteed to be the best.

    For certain types of photography, spraying is the normal way to go:

    If you enjoy these sort of posts, isn't your post a bit counter productive?

    I think with sports it is particually valid. The camera I have shoots 3.9 fps, which is slow and I use that to my advantage. I hate having to go through 600 images after a football game. I started a project on a construction site the other day for my documentary photography class. I took three cameras, two with motor drives and one without. I had planned on not using the motor drives. That didn't happen. I did use them because they are nice to have under those conditions. However, I used the single shot mode.

    They ask to be contacted if a thread appears to be going in a bad direction. That is much more about behavior than subject matter. Click the little black triangle with the "!" in the middle on the lower left if you think that is the case.
    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.

    Moderators don't censor entire threads based on the vacuity of them. They may move them in a more appropriate section. The "Ethics and philosophy" section is often about hair-splitting, but is it art, why do we do that, comparison between teas, wines, songs, women and cameras, should I take pictures of homeless people, etc. It's pub talk. Just like philosophy has been for centuries
