    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    You call the Kardashians etc 'reality'?.. the only way is APUG!

    Haven't had TV since '88 or '89.
    I hear it's gotten worse since then.

    How apt, although disparaging. For the baboons, I mean.

    Been here since '09... That's a few years already! Being a young'un it's more noticeable.
    The community here is quite homely. There are a few stints of tension and arguing every once in a while in certain topics but much better than many forums.
    And as there are many types of photographers shooting different formats and styles there is quite a wide perspective and numerous points of view on photography and film.
    Photo Engineer, who grants the forum with invaluable information on the materials and technical ways of photography; A great contributor in the community.

    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    No.

    But the difference is... we're smart enough to be able to still do that, if for some obscure reason we really, really wanted to...

    I drive old cars, listen to vinyl and shoot film. I get the quality I want from each. When asked why I cling to "obsolete" technology I tell people I refuse to submit to slick marketing and pay more to get less. Simple as that. Are we normal? No, but that's what make us interesting. And I agree absolutely with the OP, APUG is a nice place to hang out.

    And for the record, Mercedes diesel's take a long time to wear out, and a VPI record cleaner makes old albums sound amazing on a reasonable system.

    I like that! I drive an old car too and have a collection of vinyl records. And of course I shoot film. And I feel somehow "normal" because when I press the gas pedal my analog foot (not coded in 0 and 1) gets an analog response. When I listen to vinyl, my normal analog ears love the analog sound and the best part, when I look at my phots, my normal analog eyes are just so pleased!
